Partners to maintain independence
Going through life with different abilities is not always easy. The world we live in expects us all to be strong and capable of doing every task all the time. Door handles, shower stalls and bathtubs, ATM Machines, steering wheels and even pots and pans assume we have full function. Some of these can be adjusted to help us get through the day, but others cannot.
SYNERGY HomeCare helps clients living with Muscular Dystrophy and neuromuscular disease, maintain independence, by helping them accomplish the day’s tasks, and more importantly allows them to enhance the quality of their lives by assisting them with the activities that deplete their energy and can become barriers to pursuing their interests, passions, and hobbies.
Why SYNERGY HomeCare?
With Muscular Dystrophy and neuromuscular disease, there is a continuum of needs for clients and families whose lives have been impacted by the disease. This diagnosis’ impact people in different ways and depending on the disease and the stage of the disease clients will require a different level of care and support.
SYNERGY HomeCare understands that the first step in determining what type of care is most appropriate is to first meet with a client 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.
