MARMORA — Most people say business is business and it is not personal, but for Dennis and Angela Crippen, work is more than just a job. The couple found their calling to open a business through a very personal experience that left them touched and wanting to do more.
Dennis was working for Ecolab, a global chemical company, when the couple found out that Angela’s sister, Grace, had ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).
They knew she would need assistance in her home since her husband worked full time and they were living away from family. After doing research and trying various homecare services, the family was referred to Synergy HomeCare.
Soon after Synergy began caring for Grace, the family realized they were different from others.
According to a release, “Synergy’s caregivers took wonderful care of Grace. They were kind, caring and were attentive to all of her needs. Knowing all of her needs were being met gave everyone involved tremendous peace of mind.”
Wanting to give other families the same peace of mind in trying situations, the Crippens decided to open a Synergy HomeCare franchise.
Synergy HomeCare of South Jersey opened on May 17, at 539 S. Shore Road. They service all Cap May and Atlantic counties.
“After our personal experience with Synergy, we researched the business and saw the tremendous need now and their future for homecare” said Dennis. “We feel that Synergy is posed to be the leader in the non-medical health care industry and we want to be a part of helping families have peace of mind when caring for their loved ones.”
They are focusing on providing “an unparalleled level of personal service and making sure client’s needs are met 24/7.” Clients and potential clients can call any time of day and the service responds. Synergy HomeCare provides high-quality, non-medical home care to people wherever they live, whether it is in their own home or a facility. Caregivers are available on an hourly, daily, weekly or 24/7 basis, 365 days per year to seniors, the convalescing, disabled and anyone else needing companionship, homemaking services or help with daily activities.
As a result of high demand for the services offered, the company plans to open at least 10 more offices throughout the state.
