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.

SYNERGY HomeCare North Atlanta is owned and operated by two faith-based, caring moms, Stacy Fotos and Sue McCormick who know what it is like to balance the care of children with parents and who wanted to make a difference in their community by providing a quality service at an affordable price for this sandwich generation. They are both owner-operators and make it a point to be available to their client’s at any time of the day or night. They know that many will call in crisis mode on a Friday afternoon discharge from the hospital and we do whatever necessary to meet the needs of our clients on their time table.

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!

Elizabeth is such a sweet person.  I enjoyed her so much.  She was great company and encouraged me to try different things.  Always on time.  I will miss her.

Five Stars!


Rafael Garcia


We used Synergy to help care for my ailing father recently, and they really stepped up to the task. I found the caretakers to be very compassionate, caring, and gentle. My father felt at ease around them

From an administrative point of view, Synergy was very flexible, accommodating, and easy to reach. They were able to keep up with our changes in schedule driven by medical needs.


Shonna Giddens (caregiver)


I have enjoyed working with Synergy the employees are very easy going and I enjoy working with Miss Barbara the patient


Williams Lindsay


The person assigned to my wife was a kind and caring person who met every request we had. She really became part of the family.


Mark King


Thank you for the excellent service you all have provided our family to enable us to care for my mother in our homes in the last several months. Really appreciate the flexibility and the good experience with the care providers that have come out–amazing how patient and kind they have all been with my mom.


Kaya Ayisha Neal (caregiver)


Synergy is Awesome!


Lindsay A.


Please give Elisha another gold medal for all her graciousness and compassion … going down to emory is always very difficult for Dick and for me. She was ever vigilant that both of us were safe and as comfortable as possible.  Given that she had to contend with a wheelchair, his walker, his rolling bag, and me hanging onto her arm to guide us … it is really quite a lot. She has done this before. And today was no exception. She always handles it with a smile and humor. It makes what would otherwise be a stressful situation much more tolerable.  Thank you for finding us this gem.
Lisa Arens


All of the caregivers are very attentive to my parent’s needs. They are kind, gentle and very patient. Synergy does a great job of 24/7 coverage. The caregivers are willing to communicate on a regular basis with family members. And any issues ate taken care of immediately by staff members. Highly recommend Synergy!

SYNERGY provided 24-hour care for my mother for a little over a year.  My mom had ALS and could not speak and was unable to move on her own.  From start to finish, the service provided to us was absolutely incredible.  The communication was always on point and the caregivers basically became a part of our family.  We had used a few different agencies before going to SYNERGY and I really wish we had found Synergy earlier.  I cannot recommend them enough.

I have nothing but positive reactions to Synergy’s home care. Each person who came to take care of my wife had a great attitude and was willing to do whatever was needed. I was impressed with your ability to hire consistently good people. The fact that someone always answered my phone calls was awesome. If asked, I would gladly recommend your company. If a potential client has questions, I’d be happy to talk with them.

SYNERGY HomeCare has been an absolute blessing to our family.  Whenever we need emergency care for our mom, they have been able to send caregivers at a moment’s notice. When our schedules would have to change, they have been understanding and supportive.  The owner, SUE, always wants to know what’s working for us and what isn’t and she adjusts for our needs accordingly. Would HIGHLY recommend.

What an amazing resource in a time of need. Sue at Synergy got me the additional in-home care mom needed within HOURS of our speaking on the phone. All staff supplied were well trained, professional and VERY kind to both mom and me, and interacted well with the in-home hospice care that was already in place. One in particular was onsite at the time of mom’s passing, and had experienced the events that lead up to the final moments of a loved one previously. She walked me through it, let me know exactly what was going on, and was there for prayer and comfort. 5-star recommend.

Synergy took excellent care of my mother.  They had quality in home care providers, and they were quick to answer phone calls and answer and resolve any concerns we had in the beginning.  We tried a different agency prior to using Synergy and we were VERY happy with Synergy.   We had a positive experience with them and would highly recommend.

Synergy was the third home care service I hired during my father’s illness in 2018/19.  I was scared, frustrated and completely confused on next steps after his hospital stay. I’m so glad I contacted Synergy.  Everyone I interacted with was kind, professional and compassionate.  My father actually liked each of the assistants assigned to him – which was rare!  I’ve already recommended Synergy to a friend and he is also pleased with the service.

It would be an honor to care for your loved one.
