Compassionate Care for Seniors
If you’re caring for a senior parent, you may feel frazzled as you juggle caregiving duties with work, parenting and managing your own household. If you’re like nearly a third of American adults, you spend an average of 20 hours per week caring for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member. As your parent grows older, caregiving can quickly turn into a full-time duty requiring 40 or more hours per week.
Under even the best of circumstances, caregiving can disrupt your usual work and social life, sleep habits, exercise routine, household duties and finances. Eventually it can take a toll on your physical and emotional health. After all, you can’t be on-call 24/7. And you still want to preserve the relationship with your parents as a family member, not purely a caregiver. There are choices and SYNERGY HomeCare is one of the best ones to keep the balance of the family in tact.
It’s time to pause and ask yourself: “What good will I be to the person I care for if I get sick?” As a caregiver, it is critical for you to take good care of yourself—even while you are taking care of your aging loved one.
Just do it
It is possible to take some much-needed time for yourself while meeting the needs of your senior parent through SYNERGY HomeCare’s respite care services.

What’s an independent senior to do?
We'll be your safety net
Living independently without the need for help feels good. But, what happens when you need just a little bit of help at home to stay safe and healthy? Sometimes it’s not so easy to ask or it may not be so easy for family and friends to help while also trying to balance their other responsibilities.
Stay in your own home with little help from your new friends (us)
What if you could turn to someone for just a little bit of that extra help? It could mean that you don’t have to wait until a family member has time to stand by the door while you bathe. It could mean that you could write your own letters and cards (with our caregivers as your scribe) to surprise loved ones. It could mean that you have some extra help to clip coupons, get groceries, and make a favorite meal (instead of relying on a can of soup, frozen dinners, or tea, and toast). It could mean having the help needed to maintain a clean, less cluttered home so that you can move about without falling. It could mean that your son or daughter will stop worrying about you when they live in another town, state or country. This is why SYNERGY HomeCare is a smart solution for you.
The hardest part is asking for help
SYNERGY HomeCare understands that the first step is asking for help. It gets easier from there. To determine the type of care you need it's best to meet with you, and your family (if you'd like) for a complimentary home and safety assessment. During this visit, we want to learn more about what you need, in terms of help, so that together we can develop a customized plan of care for our care team to follow.
Our team is compassionate and skilled. Just what you need.
SYNERGY HomeCare's compassionate, skilled and background-screened caregivers provide relief for everyone in the family. Those who can't be on the scene can take comfort in knowing an experienced, responsible professional is on hand to cope with whatever issues may arise.
Our care team members can assist with:
- Social enrichment activities
- Nutritious meal planning, preparation, and cleanup
- Medication reminders
- Standby assistance with morning and evening routines
- Light housekeeping, laundry
- Arranging appointments and running errands
- Light exercise
- Assistance with ambulation and mobility

- And more here
