The people behind our home care


If you’ve been searching for a home care agency for your care or your loved one’s care, then you know there is a sea of sameness in the dozens of home care choices, making it difficult to actually choose one. And we know that can be frustrating.

When a friendship aligns with your passion, why not join hands in business? That’s what life-long Arizonans Sarah and Jeremy Claridge thought about their friends Rob and Melissa Dunn, who own SYNERGY HomeCare of Yuma. They met when Rob hired Jeremy, an attorney, to do legal work for his home care agency. As the couples’ friendship grew, it was apparent that the Claridge’s experience in caring for others, including their own family members, coupled with their passion for serving others, was a fertile background for opening SYNERGY HomeCare of the West Valley with the Dunns. That’s the story of how it all came to fruition.

Working together, the Claridges and Dunns have created a business of caring. SYNERGY HomeCare of the West Valley is a home care agency that you can trust to care for yourself or a loved one affected by age or illness.

In 2012, we partnered with SYNERGY HomeCare in Southwest Arizona to provide the highest possible non-medical in-home care available and we’re excited to expand into Phoenix and the West Valley!

We are Melissa and Rob Dunn and we’re excited to partner with Jeremy and Sarah Claridge to increase our care network in Southwest and Central Maricopa County. We provide high quality, non-medical in-home care for seniors and those limited by illness or disability. Our goal is to help our clients maintain their independence by aging in place. And flourishing!
We’ve really learned the value of the expression “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care” and we can’t wait to show you how much we truly care about the folks who live in Arizona. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to positively affect your lives.

Our promise to you: care that moves you

Life is in constant motion. From the time we smile our first smile, ride our first bike, find our first home or embrace our first grandchild, it just keeps moving. And a moving life is a full one. But sometimes, life can take a turn that slows us down, or even stops us in our tracks. That’s where SYNERGY HomeCare comes in. To keep the basic needs of your life effortlessly moving forward. So you can focus on what moves you and get the most out of every day.

We guide with purpose

We take a strong lead with a kind hand in what can be a stressful, uncertain time in your life. By charting an assured course and making certain that you and your family members understand what’s happening, we can keep you comfortable every step of the way.
Great care comes from confidence, and confidence is contagious. We know what we’re doing and we’re always striving to do it better. One of the things we do best is relate to people on a personal level. And when you do something well, it breeds confidence. In you, and everyone around you. That’s why our clients, employees and franchise owners are so confident, too.

How we do it:

  • We serve beyond the job description.
  • We approach the job with a sense of adventure and purpose.
  • We take ownership and responsibility over results.
  • We quickly spot new opportunities for improvement and act on them.

We know individual people have individual needs

What we do:

We listen and ask questions. That’s the best way to learn how to impact an individual’s life. That’s how we do it. And that’s why we are recognized as an organization that shows an unwavering commitment to understanding people’s needs and providing the care option that best adapts to those needs. This is how we keep you and your life moving forward by being intuitively personal.

How we do it:

  • We approach every encounter with compassion, personality and positive energy.
  • We inspire others through words.
  • We are curious. We ask questions and listen to what’s unspoken.
  • We help you set goals. We make you feel as though we are walking with you on your care journey.


Life moves in one direction – forward. No matter your circumstances, SYNERGY HomeCare steps in with effective, comforting, life-affirming care that moves people emotionally and physically forward, from personal assistance and companionship to live-in and even family caregiver respite. We provide full support for fuller lives. Ultimately, we create a feeling of forward momentum, not just in lives but also in the home care industry.

Whether you’re a high-octane octogenarian who just needs a hand, someone confined to bed who needs a little more help, or a person dealing with lifelong disabilities who needs someone to walk beside them on their journey, we’re here to care with whole hearts and open arms.

We know you have questions. And we have answers. When the time is right for you, we would be honored to speak with you. We listen!
