A family's growth is precious, but that doesn’t mean that pregnancy is easy or straightforward. All the physical, hormonal, and emotional changes can be intense—nevermind the sleep deprivation! A post-delivery recovering mom and a newborn baby is an amazing time for the entire family. Still, the new mom could use some help around the house so she can focus on bonding with the new little angel—and not worry about what’s for dinner or if the kitchen is clean.
If you're thinking about buying a cute stuffed animal and diapers for the new mom, respite care would mean so much more. You'd be the family hero.
Welcoming the new baby to a beautiful new world is something you’ll never forget. Let our caregivers at SYNERGY HomeCare provide all the time your new mom needs to bond with the baby without worrying about how the household will operate without her or whether the other kids will get their baths today. A mother’s health, physical and mental, directly impacts the baby and the family overall. By helping new moms, we help them along the way as they regain strength and begin to get into the rhythm of life with a new baby.
Whether you are expecting your first baby or your fifth, your family's addition requires an adjustment period. We can help with laundry, light housekeeping, errand running (to help when rest is key) & meal preparation (keeping in mind issues of ongoing morning sickness or all-day nausea, gestational diabetes, or high blood pressure). If you are on strict bed rest, our certified home health aides can help with bathing and personal care, so you don’t have to strain at all. We can help you follow your obstetrician or nurse midwife’s orders. Your health and safety come first. SYNERGY HomeCare understands this.
When home with your baby, we can help the two (or more!) of you. We can offer childcare relief with our caregivers who have passed strict national and state background checks. Our caregivers are available 24/7. This may just be the relief you need to get a few hours of much-needed rest or even a full night’s sleep. Our caregivers can nurture you back to good health and function after delivery. SYNERGY HomeCare of Rutherford County understands that sometimes the biggest feat of the day could be just getting a shower in for you! But that often isn’t the only thing that needs to get done. Our staff and caregivers know that a stressed parent is not parenting at her/his best from helping other families. We can help get the errands done, in and around the house, so that you can focus on creating a lasting bond with your child.
SYNERGY HomeCare of Rutherford County offers many affordable care plans for all levels of need. It can be a few hours a day up to around the clock care. Find out if new mom care from our caregivers is right for you.
Hospice redefines hope and helps patients and their families reclaim the spirit of life. Hospice care focuses on improving the patient's quality of life, allowing them to make the most of their time.
Though it takes time to understand and process, SYNERGY HomeCare believes that hospice care is a gift. It is the gift of maximizing limited time, gently and lovingly. SYNERGY HomeCare caregivers work closely with the hospice program your loved one is enrolled in. We help carry the load. You don’t have to do this alone. Taking a break from your loved one's physical care can help you be present with your loved one as just yourself. Perhaps what you need is the chance to get emotions off your chest, be a daughter again, instead of a caregiver. We encourage you to make the most of this time by leaving the heavy lifting to us.
Not only do you have the many amazing resources through your chosen hospice program, but you also have us. Medicare supported hospice only covers a limited number of home health aide hours. The rest that is needed for 24/7 care falls on you and your support system. We can be your support system. Our caregivers can cover those extra hours you need. We want you to function, to put one foot in front of the other. SYNERGY HomeCare works to provide the most respectful care and support for your loved one, you, and anyone else sharing in grief. Let us give the bed bath and run errands inside and outside of the house. You should have the chance to hold your loved one’s hand or close your eyes to get some much-needed rest.
Our support goes beyond acute care at the end of life. Even as you begin turning the page and living life without someone so dear, we at SYNERGY HomeCare can help. Perhaps you need just a little company at home when family and friends return to daily routines. Or maybe all those years and months of caring have impacted your health too. We believe that people and time are precious.
While caring for an aging parent is a labor of love, it is still labor. As one spends more and more time caring for a senior parent, they may give up favorite hobbies and vacations, say no to friends, feel distracted at work, and become more stressed with spouses and children. Over time, juggling caregiving with work, raising children, and managing a household increases the risk for depression, chronic illness and a decline in overall quality of life.
Something for Family Caregivers to Look Forward to
Me time. Time off. No responsibilities. A massage. A nap in the hammock. Snuggling up with a good book. Coffee with a best friend. A hike. Mani-pedi. Whatever the treat, one of the healthiest and most valuable things you can do for a caregiving loved one is let SYNERGY HomeCare provide respite care. It could be four hours, it could be eight. What we have learned from our clients who take weekly respite breaks from caregiving is that their overall mental and physical health is much better and their families notice the change.
