The people behind our home care
PROPELLING LIVES FORWARD
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.
Steve Thompson | Executive Director
Hello, my name is Steve Thompson, the Owner and Executive Director of SYNERGY HomeCare’s Sun City office. We serve communities in the Northwest Valley including Sun City, Glendale, Peoria, Surprise, Sun City West, Wickenburg and others. I joined the SYNERGY HomeCare team with nearly 30 years of business experience in the corporate world. I made a dramatic career change resulting from a strong desire to pursue something that allowed me to make a difference in the lives of others. My wife Dorothy and I have both been through the experience of caring, and finding care, for aging parents, as well as other family members struggling with disabilities and recovering from illness. We know from personal experience how trying that can be and how important it is to find care providers that are truly concerned with providing quality, compassionate care, and respecting the dignity of the individual. I also know from my years of business experience that those organizations that put the client or customer first are the most successful. At SYNERGY HomeCare, we strive to be the best. I am extremely proud of our great team of caregivers and administrative staff. Our franchise has been in business since 2005, and we now operate two offices, Sun City and Phoenix, as an independently owned and operated franchise of SYNERGY HomeCare. We look forward to serving you in meeting the care needs of you and your loved ones.
Andrea | Chief Operating Officer
Andrea is our COO and Designated Manager, she manages our staffing office and supervises all caregiver activities and other administrative functions. Her most important responsibility is ensuring that we effectively carry out each client’s plan of care, including ensuring we have appropriately matched caregivers with the needs and requests of each client, as well as managing the care that our team provides to our clients on an ongoing basis. She works very hard to ensure we are providing quality care and that any issues that arise in scheduling or plan of care are dealt with in a timely and effective manner for all parties involved. Andrea has a passion for providing excellent care for our clients as well as compassionate supervision for our caregivers. Her entire career has been in the home care and home health industries, with over 14 years of experience. When asked what she enjoys most about her job Andrea said: “I enjoy caring for seniors in ways that really make a difference in their daily lives. It is wonderful to know that we make it possible for them to stay happy and healthy in their homes for as long as possible. I have an amazing team of caregivers who have a heart for care-giving and give their all to help our clients. Finally, I cannot say enough about my wonderful office team! They have great communication and are always willing to jump in and help in any situation.”
