We are in the middle of a busy season. Between Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas and the New Year, the "most wonderful time of the year" can whiz by in a blur. It's not uncommon for this hurried holiday season to have a negative emotional impact on you or your clients. Don't let stress, depression or even cold weather get the better of you. Here are some ways to take advantage of the holidays.
Part of caregiving is making the holiday season special for our clients and their families. With the added stress of holiday planning, many family caregivers appreciate a little bit of respite care. We also know that seniors who live alone may have a hard time decorating or sending greeting cards. Whatever need people may have during the holidays, SYNERGY HomeCare can be there to make this a truly special time of the year.

Ask home care companies about the caliber of their caregivers, their experience and their training. For more details about what to look for in a home care provider, keep reading on our website.
