With 76 million baby boomers fueling the aging population, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports that the home health care industry is expected to increase by more than 55 percent between 2002 and 2012. Synergy HomeCare is paving the way for this rising industry, which is why Harleysville resident Chris Secchiari has opened his own Synergy HomeCare at 1571 Sumneytown Pike – the company’s first office in the Keystone State.
For nearly 25 years, Secchiari worked in service management and sales for GE Healthcare but, like many individuals, had always thought of opening a business of his own one day. As the company took a new direction in early 2009, Secchiari saw the opportunity to finally strike out on his own and began considering his next step. Secchiari’s background in healthcare paired with the community’s need for quality in home care played a vital role in his decision and as soon as he heard about Synergy HomeCare and met with members of its corporate team, Secchiari knew he had found the concept he’d been looking for.
“People want to remain independent for as long as possible and Synergy HomeCare can play an integral role in helping these individuals through the important transitions in their lives,” said Secchiari, 49. “The need for this type of service is only going to increase as time goes on and I am looking forward to being a part of this growing industry.” Founded in 2002 by Peter Tourian, Gilbert, Ariz.-based Synergy HomeCare provides high-quality, non-medical home care to people in their homes. Potential clients can call any time of the day or night to request a caregiver and Synergy HomeCare responds. Unlike other home care providers Synergy HomeCare does not limit its services to seniors and provides high-quality, non-medical home care to people of all ages in the comfort of their own homes. Caregivers are available on an hourly, daily, weekly or 24/7 basis, 365 days per year to seniors, the convalescing, adults injured on the job, those recovering from injuries, the disabled and anyone who needs help with daily activities. Though his existing coverage area – which includes Montgomery, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Berks counties – is quite large, Secchiari hopes to expand his territory further within the next few years to provide more jobs in the community and continue giving all clients the individual attention Synergy is known for.
“It’s difficult for many people to find the time to balance their own personal needs and the needs of someone else; what Synergy offers is unparalleled care exactly when it’s needed most,” said Secchiari. “It’s my goal to make Synergy the provider that comes to mind when care is needed. My standards are extremely high and I’ll do whatever it takes to match every client with a caregiver that will not only meet but exceed their needs.”
Synergy HomeCare was founded in 2002 in Gilbert, Ariz. and has become one of the fastest growing franchises in the nation. Ensuring the highest of standards, Synergy creates personalized care plans for each client based on needs and requests. They can provide service in as little as two hours after a request has been made and for as few or many hours a week as needed.
