The people behind our home care


Diego Uribe Owner SYNERGY HomeCare Barrington, IL

Diego Uribe has owned and operated SYNERGY HomeCare of Barrington since 2008, serving the greater Barrington area and the surrounding suburbs, including Algonquin, Buffalo Grove, Huntley, Inverness, and Lake Zurich. During that period, his professional care team has created peace of mind for more than a thousand local families, providing more than a million hours of exceptional in-home care.

Diego was born in Colombia into a military family. In 1969 he and his family moved to the U.S. and he later earned a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, as well as an MBA from the University of Texas. In fact, as an Engineer, Diego was granted 5 patents!

After his corporate career, and having experienced home care as a family caregiver for his mother, Diego realized there was a need for a personal, caring, and professional approach to supporting seniors at home. This calling led Diego to open SYNERGY HomeCare of Barrington, the very first SYNERGY Home Care agency in the state of Illinois. Per Diego, the thought “If this were my parent, how can I best help?” never leaves the forefront of his team’s mind.

From companionship to around-the-clock care, SYNERGY HomeCare of Barrington provides a range of in-home care services so your elder loved one can confidently age in place in the familiarity and comfort of their own home. In addition to seniors, SYNERGY HomeCare proudly provides wholehearted in-home care and support services to people of all ages and abilities. Whether you or your loved one is living with a disability or chronic condition, recovering from cancer, illness or surgery, or are a new or expectant mother, SYNERGY HomeCare of Barrington provides full in-home caregiver support for fuller lives.

Diego has been a Barrington resident since 1986, and is a very proud father of two daughters and grandfather to five grandsons. He is active in the local community as a member of the Barrington Rotary Club, and is currently leading the Companion Club on a project-focusing on mental health. In addition Diego is an active supporter of BACOA (Barrington Area Council On Aging).

As he reflects on more than 15 years of providing quality in-home care to the greater Barrington community, he enjoys reading and rereading all the heart warming client reviews, while remembering many faces of those his professional care team has served and their family members.

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!
