Home is where the heart is!
SYNERGY HomeCare's mission is to enable our clients to live happy, healthy, and independent lives in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, assisted living community, independent living community or nursing home. As the industry leader of in-home, non-medical care, SYNERGY HomeCare maintains a high standard for our Caregivers. SYNERGY HomeCare Caregivers focus on developing a trusting and supportive bond in order to promote a high quality of life, always seeking to bring as many smiles as possible to the faces of our clients.
Members of our Careteam are all special people who have a genuine interest in helping others by providing much needed companionship for those who may otherwise be alone or just need a little help with the activities of daily living. SYNERGY HomeCare is a family run business that focuses on teamwork and compassion. Because we are a resource for our clients, when we see that a client has medical needs beyond our home care scope, we refer them to our close partners in the health care industry.
If you are a caring person that has the interest, compassion, and desire to become a member of our Careteam, we would love to talk with you.
