Did you know that 1 in every 4 deaths are attributed to heart disease? According to the Centers for Disease Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. Men are also at risk, factoring in one half of deaths due to heart disease. Since February has been named American Heart Month by the American Heart Association, SYNERGY HomeCare would like to contribute to the awareness and prevention of heart disease.
Of all industry sectors, healthcare jobs will grow the fastest, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) said yesterday. In fact, healthcare and social assistance will see an increase of 5.6 million jobs over the next decade, many of which located in health practitioner offices.
For health care professionals, patient engagement is the holy grail of health care. It is the key to patient adherence - a prerequisite to achieving better outcomes, fewer ER visits and hospitalizations and more satisfied patients. It is easy to recognize an engaged patient - they do what their health care providers recommends...what their health care team knows what is right for them.
John Wayne, SYNERGY HomeCare of Metro Cincinnati

It was a son calling from another state to learn about home care services for his aging mother. We listened to him carefully as he listed the tasks his Mother needed help with.
Then he paused, reflected and said "You know, she just needs someone to be with her."
