I never met the caregivers for our father due to being away most of the time. I can tell you that by Dad's demeanor after services that his mood has always been good. As you know, dementia patients become disrupted very easily. Not once was Dad ever upset after a visit from Synergy personnel. Thank you again and we will be in touch.

The team at Synergy HomeCare does everything possible to help with life altering changes. Everyone from office staff to our caregivers has been courteous, well informed, well trained, compassionate, light hearted, and most of all professional. The caregivers are very well trained, very patient with my mom, and always asking how they can help. The 7AM aids are also always on time. Synergy goes above and beyond expectations by providing advice on everything from buying supplies to working with different vendors we have for my mom. The office is always reachable and in control. I am very likely to recommend Synergy HomeCare. I don't ordinarily make such recommendations but would make an exception for Synergy.

Ramatu is professional, caring, very knowledgable, and a perfect fit for my mother. I feel 100% confident knowing that my mother is with her. She is trustworthy, which is obviously very important when you have someone daily in your home. Synergy is lucky to have her as one of their employees. I'm lucky and blessed to have her care for my mother.

Dear Negar and Travis, I feel extremely grateful for the wonderful care that Priscilla, Tanya, and Kristen give to my mother, Nancy. Their professional, caring and respectful attitude gives me piece of mind knowing they are there taking good care of her when we can't be with her. Priscilla came on before mom's health started to deteriorate - so I thing she got to know "the somewhat real" Nancy. Mom took an immediate liking to her. They could converse and even played Yahtzee. Although I do not see much of Priscilla (she works mornings when I am at work), we do talk on the phone. I appreciate her suggestions, the way she tries to stimulate mom's mind, and of course, according to mom - she makes the best frizz beef on toast ever! My brothers and I see Tanya on a regular basis since one of us is usually there for supper. We are quite impressed with her - and when mom sees her coming in, she always has a smile for Tanya. You can tell Tanya has experience with geriatrics. She has a way about her that mom responds to. She just always knows what to do - especially the personal aspect of mom's care. I don't want to get to technical here but let's just say that Tanya exhibits good common sense. I think part of her success with mom is how patient she is with her. I feel she truly understands mom's condition and acts accordingly. She always seems to know what to do. We also see Kristen on a regular basis and are extremely glad she is back taking care of mom. She too has a way about her that mom responds to - maybe because she likes baseball and she and mom watch the Phillies games!!! She is knowledgeable in regards to mom's care and understands her needs and how to get the job done. She is patient and very respectful with her. I feel she treat mom the way she would treat her own mother. Priscilla, Tanya, and Kristen have been very helpful in suggesting and explaining ways to better help in her care - most recently with the sit to stand lift! I honestly didn't know you could get such a device in the home. I must mention that my mom's apartment is always clean and her wash is always done in a timely fashion. My mom is lucky to have Priscilla, Tanya, and Kristen caring for her. Synergy HomeCare is outstanding and we are appreciative of all the help they have been to our family.

I have had dealings with Travis McMenimon and Negar Jahanbin and am highly satisfied with their prompt and caring responses to any concerns I may have. I was impressed with the e-mail from Lauren Rose, the new Client Care Coordinator, introducing herself and the fact that she went to see my sister to introduce herself in person. My sister and I love her caregiver Evelyn. When I have talked on the phone with her to ask for something, i.e. to water my sister's flowers, she has already done it. She is a self-stated woman who sees what needs to be done and does it. She is a caring and special person, and I am fortunate to have her to care for my sister, Marianna, at Riddle.

Travis McMenimon has been my primary contact and he is always readily available, understanding, and helpful. Sometrimes when I call him about something he is already aware and working on it. My sister is happy with the caregivers who come and this is very satisfying to me. On the few occasions I havent talked to Travis, I spoke with Negar who was also helpful. It is reassuring to know Travis is there to help me with anything I need for my sister's care. Kudos to Travis!

I learned of Synergy HomeCare through the Social Services Director at Wellington Terrace and am completely satisfied with the care my dad has received. During Dad's "delusional" phase after surgery the caregivers were understanding of his situation, sensitive and responsive to his needs, and patient with his requests. Negar and Travis the Administrators have been very accessible and reliable throughout the whole process. They listened patiently during start of service and did their best to accommodate our requests. We would certainly recommend Synergy HomeCare to other families looking for home care services.

Within a couple of hours of the first contact with Synergy, both administrators were at the hospital to meet with me and my family. That evening Negar Jahanbin was at our home with an aide! She was back the next morning to introduce the morning aide to us, and both Travis and Negar were back that evening to ensure everything was going according to plan with my husband. There was daily contact with the administrators throughout the start of service and frequently on an ongoing basis. They are the most caring and conscientious individuals and they obviously love what they do. If homecare is necessary, these two can make it a pleasant experience because you know they really care for your family as much as you do!

We are very grateful for the love and care our wife/mother Mary Ellen received from Synergy HomeCare. The team's genuine compassion and devotion to her comfort and health was inspiring and most comforting to us during such a stressful time. The nine caregivers that provided around the clock care for my mom in her final weeks were amazingly professional and compassionate. The support that Travis & Negar provided to our family and their team of caregivers stands out in my mind as something we wouldn't have received if we went with another agency. We felt that everyone from office staff to caregivers was truly an angel to our family.

My father, who is in his late 70's was diagnosed with dementia about a year ago. He has been on a steady decline and has recently been re-evaluated and told he is now in the moderate stages. The physicians recommended we either have in-home care or put him in an assisted living home. His licence was taken away which was devastating for him since now he is home-bound. We talked about assisted living options with him. This was one of the most difficult conversations we've ever had to have with my dad. He became very upset, depressed and flat out refused to leave his home. He refused to even visit homes with us. We could understand completely where he was coming from since we did not want that for him either. The more we discussed it and tried to make him understand things, the more confused and upset he became. We dropped the subject and took the social worker's advise to call an in-home care giver. She recommended Synergy. I called Mark and told him a bit about my father & what duties we would expect from them. After a brief conversation to determine if this was something they could do , Marc scheduled an evaluation. We decided to start care right away. At first, my dad was confused as to who these people were that kept coming to his house. After time, he started getting used to them, but did not remember them coming over. When I asked him about the visits, he would tell me no one was there. I would call Marc who assured me that someone actually did visit.Marc gave me the Synergy website and had the caregivers write twice daily updates for us to read. I cannot explain how much of a help & relief this was to me. I live two hours away from my dad & I had no idea if someone was there or how things were going. This is literally my life line to my dad. Each day, the care givers write updates on my dad's mood, the things they did together, what they bought at the grocery store, what he ate, medication updates, if any visitors were there, updates on his hygine and any cleaning they did. I cannot ask my dad any of this because he does not remember much of anything. Now, my dad somehow knows what time his visitors come (I think he writes it on his calendar) and waits at the door for them. There is a particular care giver, Amy-Sue, that he feels very comfortable with. It's important to us that the same few people visit & Marc has arranged that. Synergy has allowed my dad to stay in his home which is invaluable to us and to him. They've provided affordable, quality care giving for my dad. I really cannot think of anything more important in his life than being able to stay at home right now.

Synergy HomeCare is an amazing service! I have been using care givers from Synergy to care for my 8 year old special needs son and my 6 year old daughter for a year. My children LOVE the care givers that Synergy has sent to us. I have so much trust and respect for the care givers that when I travel for work, I can 100% focus on accomplishing what's in front of me versus having anxiety about what's going on at home. They are professional, communication is open, they always follow direction thoroughly, they are PROMPT and flexible. My kids love them because they are attentive, friendly, consistent, caring and can play all the games on the Wii. I've had a care giver for my kids all of their life and know how hard it can be to find someone that has all of the right qualities. Finding Synergy has truly been a blessing for me and my kids and I am thankful.

I want to begin by saying a great big thank you to John and Joel for all their continued support and dedication to me and my family! Over the past two years my grandparents living situation has significantly deteriorated and they are unable to take care of themselves. My grandmother is physically ill and is in bed the majority of the time and my grandfather has Alzheimer's which is getting worse every day. I had tried many homecare companies, but dealing with the inexperienced caregivers and the office staff was at times unbearable. I was beginning to think I was running out of options, and my life was going to consist of me driving back and forth to my grandparent's house at a minimum of 3 times a day while working and caring for my own family. Then a colleague of mine told me how great Synergy HomeCare of NJ in Shrewsbury was and I called immediately. The office staff was delightful to speak with and very helpful in giving me all the information I needed to get started. The very next day John and Joel came right to my grandparent's home and met the family. Their energetic personalities, nurturing ways, and business ethics are phenomenal and they quickly put my mind at ease as well as my grandmothers (which is a very hard thing to do). We went from having a caregiver come in just a few hours a day to now having a live in. Although it was a necessity - the adjustment of having someone living in their home was very hard for my grandparents. John personally made many visits and phone calls to my grandparents to help them get adjusted each step of the way. Thanks to Synergy not only do I have the peace of mind that my grandparents are being well taken care of by a highly qualified caregiver, but I finally have some of my own life back again. I truly cannot thank John and Joel enough for all that they have done for my family so far and I look forward to continuing to work with them! I would highly recommend them to any family in need of exceptional care!!

David and I want to thank you for the wonderful support and care you and Laura and your caregivers have given my dad - and out whole family. The fall that made my dad suddenly unable to live by himself required many emotional as well physical adjustments for our family, and you helped with all of those. You met our needs those first few weeks by sending truly exceptional caregivers to be with him, round the clock, when he was in the hospital at UAB, then the inpatient at Lakeshore Rehab Hospital, and then at our home. Again and again, we were impressed by the kindness and professionalism of every caregiver you sent. And your desire personally to introduce every new caregiver to my dad when he was in the most fragile state was really touching. In addition, you responded graciously - in fact, heroically! -- to our constantly changing needs. One morning we would think my dad would be leaving the hospital, and then three hours later the plan would change - and you would adjust to the new arrangement so calmly and positively. One other thing especially appreciate is your willingness to send the very best caregivers for my dad, although you knew he was, for fiscal reasons, unlikely to be a long-term client. You've continued to meet his sporadic needs for home health care workers by sending really the nicest, most committed people. Interestingly, several of the caregivers have told me, although they've worked for a variety of health care companies over the years, they've been happiest working with Synergy. The reasons several have given are the you and Laura are both committed and personally involved - and that all the other Synergy caregivers they occasionally meet and interact with are hardworking, kind and committed. Being in the midst of people motivated to do their best must be motivating to everyone. Well, thanks for everything. we'll continue to call you intermittently when we need help for my Dad, and we'll feel good knowing the kind of people you'll send.

I want to take this opportunity to commend Synergy for the outstanding service you provided my family during a time of intense need. I am very pleased that the Veterans Administration chose your company to send professional home care providers to help my father, James after my mother received a diagnosis of terminal breast cancer. My mother and I both needed respite care from dealing with James' dementia/Alzheimer's issues in order to deal with her health problems and all the other issues surrounding care giving for two 82year old people in their decline. I was so pleased with our very first sitter, Ilyasa C. She was wonderful and I so much appreciated how involved you and your staff were to make sure we received the appropriate level of service and care. At the moment, I cannot recall the second sitter's name, but she, too, we a delight to work with, I liked how smooth and efficient you were when schedules or needs changed. You make it very easy to partner with you in taking care of James, especially when I was to involved in taking care of my mother, Naomi. In my opinion, your caregivers when over and beyond the call of duty. They became like an extension of our family during a time when we had only two family members in the area and desperately needed help. I am very pleased that the VA chose you as a provider. I want not only to acknowledge your exceptional, high quality service, but also to volunteer to be a reference should you ever needs one. Thank our for your dedication and quality of service.

I started working for Synergy HomeCare in October of 2003, I had been working with dysfunctional children ages 9 through 18 for almost 27 months before I came to Synergy HomeCare. I had worked with elderly people all my life, and enjoyed helping the elderly. I take care of my elderly mother in my home. Synergy HomeCare has always treated me with dignity & respect which is hard to find in a lot of the companies this day and age. They want their clients to have the best care, so they match the caregiver to fit the client needs. I’ve worked for the last 30 years and wanted a job that was both fulfilling and non stressful, and I got it!!!! I would refer Synergy HomeCare to any people who want a nice, pleasant job as well as to someone who needs in-home care. Synergy HomeCare is a “GREAT” company to work for. In fact, if I ever needed in home care for myself in the future I would call them!!! They are one of the best companies I have ever worked for. I LOVE MY JOB!

I would like to say that SYNERGY HomeCare is the best! The reason I can say that is because I know. I have been in Tucson all my life and worked with many companies but never worked with such nice professional people. They are what quality is about. I work for a medicare certified home health company so when I call for private duty coverage on Friday afternoon at 3:30pm, SYNERGY HomeCare has been there in no time flat to assist in a seamless discharge to get the patient home safely, and has always given high quality care to all of their clients. I never question their ability to provide the best possible fit for the client to caregiver. I personally utilized their services in the past, when I injured my knee, to have them tidy my house. They sent a very nice young lady that did a great job. She was in nursing school. I would tell anyone looking for a non-medical company to call them for professional quality care in a loving way.

I have been working with SYNERGY HomeCare here in Tucson, Arizona for the past 1 1/2 years. They are my preferred agency for caregivers and I have sent them numerous referrals. Clients have been well cared for and have all been 100% satisfied with their caregivers and the services from SYNERGY HomeCare. They take a personal interest in every client and go above and beyond in so many ways. I can't count the number of times I've called to request 24 hour caregivers and they have been so responsive and able to fill within a few hours. This service is so vital to those who wish to remain in their own homes and have no family or caregivers and can no longer be safe home alone, or can no longer take care of themselves at home. They are extremely professional and treat all their clients with the utmost respect (even those who are not so easy to work with at times due to high intensity situations). They are willing to work individually with patients and family and meet their particular needs. I would not be able to serve my patients as effectively without them and their great work!

First, Lori came in at 2 am to help a personal care giver the first night on duty because my mother was very ill and unstable. In July and August, the monsoon season in Tucson, Arizona has been horrendous. Lori dropped by to check up on our family when the electricity was out and when the flood waters were up to the door. Lori stayed until a relief person arrived and everything was under control. Debbie, along with Lori, literally saved our Mother's life the first night on the job. Both Debbie and Crystal, are sharp, caring and gentle with our 90 year old mother and 86 year old Dad while managing the many different personalities in our large family.

Recently a long time client needed to change her full time caregiver. After interviewing several companies,we elected to retain Synergy HomeCare. The company has been professional, caring and dependable. Synergy has made recommendations and improvments in the home to reduce safety concerns and they have taken the time to find out what makes my client happy. They provide and participate with her in daily activities, including exercise, trips to the library or pet store, and walks on the pier all of what she enjoys. I would recommend Synergy HomeCare to persons who are looking to retain caregivers. They are given national background checks and are bonded against theft. The communication and follow up from their office has been excellent to insure the clients best interests are being met.

Dear Brett, We employed Bernadette full time as a caregiver for a few brief weeks in August. During this time, Bernadette's home making care was excellent and performed in such a way as to almost go unnoticed. She anticipated our requirments before we were aware of the need. Her personal/attendant care was invaluable as we struggled to keep medication schedules on track during hospice shift changes, all while family and friends were arriving and departing at a frantic pace. Her care and worry for my wife's comfort were self-evident. Her kind, supporting and encouraging words were shared appropriately and very much appreciated. Bernadette was thoughtful, friendly, and welcoming, yet remained professional at all times. She helped our family through this most difficult time, and for that we are most grateful.
