If you’re caring for a senior parent, you may feel frazzled as you juggle caregiving duties with work, parenting and managing your own household. If you’re like nearly a third of American adults, you spend an average of 20 hours per week caring for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member. As your parent grows older, caregiving can quickly turn into a full-time job, requiring 40 or more hours per week.
Under even the best of circumstances, caregiving for an aging loved one can disrupt your usual work and social life, sleep habits, exercise routine, household duties and finances. Eventually it can take a toll on your physical and emotional health. After all, you can’t be on-call 24/7. And you still want to preserve the relationship with your parents as a family member, not purely a caregiver.
If you're lucky enough to be reading this before or at the onset of taking care of your aging parent or loved one, you can abate a major life disruption by using the in-home care option to manage the day-to-day personal care, instead of you owning the responsibility.
The good news is you can leave some or all of your elder care needs to our professional, compassionate caregivers. They can assist your loved one with activities of daily living, such as:
As part of our senior care services, our caregivers can also assist with household management, such as:

Living independently without the need for help feels good. But, what happens when you need just a little bit of help at home to stay safe and healthy? Sometimes it’s not so easy to ask or it may not be so easy for family and friends to help while also trying to balance their other responsibilities.
What if you could turn to someone for just a little bit of that extra help? It could mean that you don’t have to wait until a family member has time to stand by the door while you bathe. It could mean that you could write your own letters and cards (with our caregivers as your scribe) to surprise loved ones. It could mean that you have some extra help to clip coupons, get groceries, and make a favorite meal (instead of relying on a can of soup, frozen dinners, or tea, and toast). It could mean having the help needed to maintain a clean, less cluttered home so that you can move about without falling. It could mean that your son or daughter will stop worrying about you when they live in another town, state, or country. This is why SYNERGY HomeCare is a smart solution.
SYNERGY HomeCare understands that the first step in determining what type of care is most appropriate is to meet with a client and their family for a complimentary in-home assessment and visit. During this visit, we want to learn more about how your 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.
SYNERGY HomeCare's compassionate, skilled and screened caregivers provide relief for everyone in the family. Those who can't be on the scene can take comfort in knowing an experienced, responsible professional is on hand to cope with whatever issues may arise.
