Our basic life needs and desires do not change significantly as we age. We want choices, we want to maintain our independence, and we want a say in our daily decisions. As we age, we come to cherish these basic needs although we may need assistance at times. Dignity, respect, companionship and enjoyment are as important as balanced nutrition, cleanliness, personal hygiene, privacy, comforts and safety to leading a healthy and happy life.
Our number one goal at SYNERGY HomeCare is to introduce the perfect caregiver to your loved one while delivering on the promise of a safe environment. With safety comes reassurance and peace of mind for the senior and their family. Every senior has unique wants and needs and deserves to be listened to and understood. Thorough interviews are conducted in the convenience of your own home. We strive to fully satisfy and care for your loved ones.
You have a loved one who needs in home care? We’ve been in your shoes before. We understand and can help.
Or you're a senior who is bravely reaching out for some 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 your loved one as though they were a member of our family. (We really feel this way!)
Our secret sauce is a mixture of compassion, love, empathy and continuity of care, whether we’re with your loved one for a couple of hours or 24 hours a day.
If you’re shopping around for in-home care for a parent or loved one, you’re probably a little stressed about the process. And quite possibly tired of every home care agency telling you “we’re the best.” It’s hard. Here’s our recommendation to help you in this process: Read our reviews, and our competitors’ as well, to feel your way to reason as you make your decision. Reviews are the windows into our core of trust and compassion---something everyone searching for the right home care agency should read.
Most people who are new at this, like you perhaps, approach us because they have an aging parent who needs in-home help. If that’s why you’re here, we recommend that you download this free guide on elder caregiving, “Where to Begin.” It will answer most of your questions and help you define a go-forward strategy.
While we do believe that we are the best non-medical in-home care agency, we like to prove it to you, in real-time, and we begin showing you with an in-home care and safety assessment that costs you nothing. It's a good opportunity for you to learn a lot about us as an agency and as caring individuals, as it involves our care management team meeting with you and any other involved family members, and of course, your loved one, if you desire.
Basically, we learn everything we can about your loved one—when they take their prescription medicine /dosage to what their favorite foods are to habits, limitations and so on.We gather information about what you expect from caregiving 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:
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.
Something that seems to be a sensitive topic for some adult children, is breaking the news to their parents that they will be getting in-home care. 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 the logic to convey to make this a smooth transition—just another benefit of home care.
PSST—Assisted living and nursing home facilities don’t want you to know this secret
In-home care is a cost-effective way for loved ones recuperating from a hospital stay or who, because of a functional or cognitive disability, are unable to fully take care of themselves, but do not require continual medical care. In fact, post-hospital patients who receive home care services are less likely to be readmitted for hospitalization.
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.
The beauty of in-home care is that it reinforces and supports care provided by family members and friends, while your loved one maintains their dignity and independence—and morale.
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.
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. We look forward to your questions.
