Top 3 Reasons to Choose At-Home Senior Care 

Due to many different factors, deciding on the type of care that will best fit a particular senior's needs is complicated. From assisted living and retirement homes, to at-home senior care, there are many options to choose from, and each has its own unique characteristics. If you and your parent have begun to research care options, though, you may want to consider in-home elder care. Take a look at these three reasons why SYNERGY HomeCare might be your best choice!



February is American Heart Month

This month, give some extra attention to your heart - and not just on Valentine's Day. It's American Heart Month, which is a perfect time to think seriously about you and your clients' cardiac health and what you could do to improve it. There are many goals you and your clients may choose to set this month, from better blood sugar control to simply replacing salt in your cooking with spices instead. You can take a number of small steps to improve both your own heart health and the health of the seniors you care for.

Links Between Vitamin D and Brain Health

Vitamin D has many health benefits and is often recommended as a natural way to promote bone and joint health. Recent research has found that it can actually affect a person's healthy brain function as well, and  vitamin D also plays a role in the production of serotonin, which is a chemical that helps the brain maintain balanced moods. While the research has mainly focused on fetal development, vitamin D has long been known to be an extremely important health booster for seniors.



#Mission 22

SYNERGY HomeCare has always been proud to support our veterans.  Did you know that more soldiers are lost AT HOME than in all of our current combat missions abroad? Just this year, more than 7,000 veterans will lose the battle against Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and other trauma-related disorders. Mission22 is an effort to bring awareness to this shocking statistic and stop it from growing.

Throughout the nation, Mission22 is enlisting civilians to share the story and "claim a number 22"  - on buses, street signs, jerseys, race cars, or anywhere athe number 22 is found.  A memorial will also be created, honoring the soldiers lost at home every day and reminding us of their sacrifices.  You can help raise awareness by changing your social media profile picture or posting an image of a 22 on Instagram.  You can also share the Mission22 video, which tells the personal story of a Delta Force veteran and his struggle with PTSD.
