Saltbox TV, the first free streaming platform designed to bring diverse, informative, and engaging programming to older adults, announced a partnership with SYNERGY® HomeCare that allows its caregivers the opportunity to introduce the programming to its clients. This marks the first such arrangement between Saltbox TV and an in-home care provider. The agreement also allows SYNERGY HomeCare to provide original content to Saltbox TV. 

SYNERGY HomeCare, the fastest-growing home care franchise, has a presence in more than 380 U.S. markets. SYNERGY HomeCare franchisees and their caregivers can assist their clients to access Saltbox TV’s content library curated for older adults online at www.saltboxtv.com, or on Roku and Amazon Firestick devices.


"The first-ever free streaming service created for older adults. Easy to use—no technical experience needed! It's a game-changer!"


“We believe that our senior clients and their families deserve home care service that positively impacts them and allows them to move forward in their lives,” said Charlie Young, Synergy HomeCare CEO. “This relationship with Saltbox TV is another way that we can bring added benefits to our clients. Along with the entertainment options, we were attracted to the Saltbox TV’s unique content, including programming on the aging process, dementia and Alzheimer’s, daily meditations, and senior fitness.” 

Saltbox TV’s interface is designed with older-adult friendly features, including easy to read text with increasable size options, a technical support hotline, and optimized high contrast color schemes. In addition, viewers can watch without creating a username or password. Viewers have a plethora of engaging content to choose from, with genres ranging from wellness and care, lifelong learning, arts and music, and everything in between. Some titles include Protect Your Loved Ones: Elder Care Law, A Positive Approach to Care with Teepa Snow, Just Ask Dr. Macie: The Social Gerontologist, Senior Fitness with Meredith, Chair Yoga with Kristin Cork, and nostalgic programs such as The Lucy Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and The Last Time I Saw Paris.

Saltbox TV founders, and husband and wife duo, Jerry Goehring (TONY & GRAMMY-nominated Broadway/West End Producer) and Patty Carver (entertainer/writer) recognized a discrepancy between the prominence of digital media and lack of platforms dedicated to serving seniors, so they sought to change exactly that. 

“This is more than just a channel to watch television; it’s a place that’s breaking the stigma and changing the culture around older adults,” said Patty Carver, Saltbox TV co-founder. “We are always excited to partner with not only leaders in the senior industry, but companies that share our mission, and that’s SYNERGY HomeCare.”

SYNERGY HomeCare provides a wide array of services, including personal care, companion care, and specialized care for individuals who are aging in place, physically or developmentally disabled, living with chronic health conditions or recovering from illness or surgery.
