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.

Meet Femi Thompson, the man who provides peace of mind for you and your family

Femi ThompsonThanks for stopping by to learn more about SYNERGY HomeCare of Manhattan Beach. If you’re seeking in-home care for yourself or a loved one, you’ve landed in the right place.

While comparing home care agencies, you may have experienced a sea of sameness, in terms of care offerings. Femi Thompson, owner/operator of SYNERGY HomeCare Manhattan Beach has unintentionally disrupted the area’s once level playing field with an easily discernable differentiator that you are about to discover.

Femi lives a life that many strive to achieve. He’s confident, dedicated and magnetic. Once you meet him, you’ll understand, but until then, his back story is one that may inspire you while having to rethink your definition of home care. In your logical mind, you know what services home care agencies offer and that’s basically what you’re seeking. But what Femi contributes to home care illuminates the possibilities of what home care can truly be. He marries caring with compassion in a warm and intimate manner.

Femi was born and raised in Africa, moving to Chicago in 2013 where he used his bachelor’s degree in information technology to land a position with an online health care company. After many years, it became time for him to create his legacy and start a business that would contribute to others’ well-being.

His desire to own a home care agency stems from his family culture where it is second nature to care for family; it’s understood by all as a part of life.

Femi cared for his beloved grandmother for many years. One of the rewards of being her caregiver was realizing that it was far more than serving meals and giving baths. He understood that creating a human connection was the true gift of caregiving.

Fast-forward to today and he cares for his daughter with the same compassion he shared with his grandmother. And this is how he is changing the face of home care—by replacing the sea of sameness with confidence and compassion.

While Femi provides care for everyone, his hope is to be known as the go-to person for aging adults. Although no one can replace family, he wants them to know that he offers compassion and care,  just like family.  He often thinks that if his grandmother had had better care, she would have had more time, but home care was not available in his village.  This compelled him to open SYNERGY HomeCare of Manhattan Beach where he can make a difference in others’ lives.

“My grandmother told me that whatever you do for people, it comes back to you. It’s called karma. I want people to know that they have more than what they think. It’s more than an income to me,” Femi said. “My clients will feel our compassion as we care for them, which naturally raises their confidence about being in the right hands.”

Just as he wants his clients to feel confident and happy with the compassionate care they receive, it’s the same for hiring caregivers. When you’re authentic with others, they feel it. Femi inspires them with his words and experience. One thing he knows for certain is that compassionate caregiving must be in their hearts, their DNA, as it can’t be taught—that’s an inside job! Our caregivers understand that their job makes them a better version of themselves.

Femi knows that when people like you begin their home care journey, you might worry that you won’t receive the same kind of care that your family could provide. He makes sure they are cared for intimately, with heart, putting that worry to rest.

If you’ve been comparing home care agencies, you’ve probably discovered the refreshing difference that SYNERGY HomeCare of Manhattan Beach offers. When you need home care, Femi and his team of compassionate caregivers are ready.
