According to a Gallup-Healthways study, more than 1 in 6 Americans working full-time or part-time report assisting with the care of an elderly or disabled family member, relative, or friend. Caregivers indicated that this assistance significantly affected their work life. Adult children don't want their parents having to leave their home due to age-related illness or impairments. Many family caregivers spend more than 25 hours a week - in addition to their outside job - caring for elderly parents and family members.
With someone else to take care of daily caregiving needs, family members can return to simply enjoying their relationship with an aging parent. Instead of feeling overburdened and guilty, time together can be spent creating new and recalling old memories.
SYNERGY HomeCare knows what you know: family comes first.
Why SYNERGY HomeCare?
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 & friends to help while also trying to balance their other responsibilities.
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 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 solution.
SYNERGY HomeCare understands that the first step in determining what type of care is most appropriate is to meet with a client and their family for a complimentary in-home assessment and visit. During this visit, we want to learn more about how a client’s day to day activities are impacted by the symptoms they are experiencing so that together we can develop a customized plan of care for our care team to follow.
SYNERGY HomeCare's compassionate, skilled and 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.
