Welcome! What brings you to
SYNERGY HomeCare of MOT?
You probably have a loved one—most likely an aging parent— who needs non-medical home care. You've come to the right place. We understand and can help.
Or maybe you're a senior who has realized that you just can't do everything by yourself anymore and are bravely reaching out for some extra help. If this is the case, learn more here.
The good news is that our experience in-home care is extensive and we care for you or your loved one as though you were a member of our family.
Our secret sauce is a mixture of compassion, experience and continuity of care, whether we’re with your loved one for a few hours a week or 24 hours a day.
Here's the best thing you can do for yourself as you vet in-home care options:
The best thing you can do for yourself as you navigate home care for your loved one is to download and read the book, "Where Do We Begin," a complete guide to eldercare. You probably have many questions—this guide will answer most. Call us with any unanswered questions.
Learning about each other is important
While we do believe that we are the best in-home care agency in the New Castle - Kent County area, we'd like to prove it to you. After our initial discussion, we schedule a complimentary in-home assessment for you to learn more about us as an agency and as caring individuals. We meet with you and any other involved family members, and of course, your loved one, if you desire.
We learn everything we can about your loved one—when they take their prescription medicine and what dosage, to what their favorite foods are, to habits, limitations and so on. We gather information about what you expect from your caregiver so that we can meet, or exceed your expectations. We'll be sure to ask you to identify any problems, special needs, strengths, weaknesses and resources, as well as evaluate your loved one's:
- medications and dosing
- medical history
- physical abilities
- cognitive abilities
- social assessment
- safety issues within the home
- short and long term goals
- communication methods and expectations
Our assessment has many benefits
The benefit that towers above all others is the peace of mind that you feel from knowing you've finally initiated care for the person who may have spent a lifetime caring for you. And some argue that they are more excited at the cost savings of home care versus an assisted living facility or nursing home. Most of our clients indicate they feel so much better from the peace of mind we offer, but they’re equally as happy about saving a lot of money by using in-home care.
The secret you'll never hear from senior living facilities
And the little secret about in-home care that you'll never hear from an assisted living facility or nursing home: one on one, individual care is given by in-home caregivers, not one caregiver for every eight patients. That is more special than you might imagine. You only pay for the service you need.
We understand—you're still their baby
Something that seems to be a sensitive topic for some adult children, is breaking the news to their parents that they need help around the house in order to live independently. Adult children often struggle with this. We work with you to help with the message delivery to your parents, in fact, we'd like you to download this guide on having the aging conversation with your parents. We’ve done it so often, that we understand the process an older person goes through when they believe they are losing their independence and others are beginning to control them. We know the right words, the explanations and logic to convey to make this a smooth transition.
We’re great at long-distance relationships
Are you coordinating caregiving from out of town? When you are confident that your home care provider is top-notch in both caregiving and communication, there’s a certain peace of mind that accompanies that confidence. It may even help you sleep at night. We are there when you can’t be. And we'll be sure your mom or dad is well, happy and in very capable hands.
We’ll make you the family hero
If your siblings and other family have appointed you as the designated home care researcher, we will make you the family hero by providing the complete details of what home care entails, why it works and how it will enrich your loved one’s quality of life. You’ll be able to share a blueprint of care with your siblings and family. We also recommend you share the "Where Do We Begin" guide to eldercare with them.
We look forward to your questions
Our success speaks for us. We are proud of our reputation. Having a career, or as we say, ‘passion,’ where we help make others’ lives better through our compassionate home care is why we are happily engaged in our calling of in-home care.
