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.
For 15 years, SYNERGY HomeCare has provided home-based, non-medical services to the Barrington area and beyond. Owner Diego Uribe and his dedicated team work 24/7 to ensure that Synergy’s team of highly trained caregivers delivers the very best care to their clients. They’ve served over 500 clients—totaling over 650,000 hours of care provided—in the greater Barrington area and the surrounding suburbs, including Algonquin, Buffalo Grove, Huntley, Inverness, and Lake Zurich.
SYNERGY HomeCare clients are able to select the services they need given their particular situation. Whether they are transitioning from rehabilitation, or anticipate long-term care, Synergy can provide them with the appropriate level of assistance. Caregivers are hand-selected for their skills and compassion, as well as highly screened (including fingerprinting and thorough background checks), before being matched to a client’s personality and needs.
Services begin with Companionship care, which encompasses everything from assistance with morning routines to meal planning and preparation. If additional care is needed, such as help with bathing and personal hygiene, clients can choose from a menu of Personal Care services to meet their individual needs.
“The main reason we started SYNERGY HomeCare was due to experiences with care for our parents,” states Diego. He says that even as the company grows, Synergy’s core philosophy and practices will remain the same. “As we evaluate the needs of those we serve, my managers and I always ask ourselves, ‘If this were my parent, what would be best for them?’ We will continue to make business decisions and provide services as if for our own loved ones.”

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.

So you can focus on what moves you and get the most out of every day.
