Home care firm receives honor

Synergy HomeCare, in Lakewood, has been accepted as a member of the AARP National Employer Team. The program connects workers 50 and older with employers who recognize the skills and experience many older workers bring to their jobs.

Synergy caregivers are available to seniors who are convalescing or disabled and others who may need help with daily activities.

The AARP Web site provides information on employers and the positions they have posted along with links to the employer’s AARP career page. During the next three to five years, employers could lose one-third of their workforce due to retirement. Attracting workers who are 50 and older is one way to prepare for that shift.
