Former financial advisor with expertise in long-term care insurance now provides hands-on care to community
Gilbert, Ariz. (Dec. 08, 2020) – SYNERGY® HomeCare, a leading national in-home care franchise, has a new location, SYNERGY HomeCare of Huntington Beach.
The company is led by Michael Mantong, a certified financial planner with more than 25 years of experience in working with clients on personalized insurance and investment solutions, who has leveraged his deep knowledge of long-term care in a new business venture.
Headquartered at 16152 Beach Boulevard, Suite 279 in Huntington Beach, the company serves Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Westminster and Cypress, Calif.
SYNERGY HomeCare of Huntington Beach provides clients with a wide variety of non-medical care options, from companion care to personal care to specialized care for people with chronic health conditions or recovering from illness or surgery.
Mantong saw a growing need in his community for these services, particularly among Baby Boomers. U.S. Census statistics show that 10,000 Baby Boomers are turning 65 every day and that by 2030, there will be more than 70 million people over the age of 65. He also had a personal connection, with parents in their 80s.
During his time in the insurance industry, he observed that many people we not aware of the services that are associated with long-term care and hosted educational seminars to bridge that knowledge gap. Over the course of his career, he also noticed the industry becoming more transactional in nature rather than relationship-based. He was drawn to eldercare because he was able to return to a more personalized, hand-on client relationship in a field he knew very well.
SYNERGY HomeCare of Huntington Beach’s main focus of in-home care is for older people who need some assistance in their home to maintain their independence.
Indeed, independence is a hallmark of both baby boomers and members of the Greatest Generation. A recent AARP survey found that 75% of those 65+ report they want to remain in their current residence for as long as possible. But most don’t understand that this desire to age in place may ultimately require a little bit of in-home care to ensure their long-term independence.
According to Mantong, the majority of his clients lack a local support system and rely on his caregivers for assistance cooking, shopping, running errands, light housekeeping or going for walks. Some even require personal care such as help bathing, dressing or using the toilet.
“Distance should not keep adult children from being in tune with their aging loved ones to help them maintain their quality of life while aging in place, something that can be accomplished through local in-home care,” he explained.
Mantong is currently looking to add to his team of diverse caregivers. While licensed Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) are ideal candidates, Mantong will provide training and certification for people looking to enter the field. Caring, compassionate people with a reverence for elders are invited to apply by visiting www.synergyhomecare.com or calling 714-509-1880.
SYNERGY HomeCare of Huntington Beach offers competitive hourly rates in addition to flexible shifts perfect for both college students or recent graduates as well as people who are retired and looking to stay active.
In addition, Mantong leverages GPS technology to match caregivers and clients by geography, an important benefit when considering travel time.
