With 76 million baby boomers fueling the aging population, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports that the home health care industry is expected to increase by more than 55 percent between 2002 and 2012. Synergy HomeCare is paving the way for this rising industry, which is why Lutherville residents Steven and Jennifer Diamond will open their own Synergy HomeCare at 8601 LaSalle Road on September 9, 2009. Synergy HomeCare has aggressive growth plans for Maryland, with plans to open six additional locations in the state over the next three years.
A career centered on caring for others was a natural choice for the Diamonds: Steven, an accountant and lifelong Maryland resident, worked in the nursing home industry for close to 20 years before he and Jennifer founded Hands Across the Americas – a non-profit organization committed to providing access to healthcare and economic development in communities throughout the Americas – in 1996. Since then, Hands Across the Americas has served roughly 35,000 patients in need, specifically in the South American countries of Columbia and Peru, the latter of which where Jennifer was born and raised, but the Diamonds wanted to bring that same level of care and compassion to their local community. Synergy HomeCare proved to be the perfect fit for their backgrounds as well as the needs of local residents.
“People want to remain independent for as long as possible and Synergy HomeCare can play an integral role in helping these individuals through the important transitions in their lives,” said Steven. “The need for this type of service is only going to increase as time goes on and we are looking forward to being a part of this growing industry.”
Founded in 2002, by Peter Tourian, Gilbert, Ariz.-based Synergy HomeCare provides high-quality, non-medical home care to people in their homes. Potential clients can call any time of the day or night to request a caregiver and Synergy HomeCare responds. Unlike other home care providers, Synergy HomeCare does not limit its services to seniors and provides high-quality, non-medical care to people of all ages in the comfort of their own homes. Caregivers are available on an hourly, daily, weekly, or 24/7 basis, 365 days per year to seniors, the convalescing, adults injured on the job, those recovering from injuries or surgery, the disabled and anyone who needs help with daily activities. Though their existing coverage area already includes most of Baltimore County, the Diamonds hope to expand their territory into surrounding communities over the next few years while still providing all clients with the individual attention Synergy is known for.
“It’s difficult for many people to find the time to balance their own personal needs and the needs of someone else: what Synergy offers is unparalleled care exactly when it’s needed most,” said Jennifer. “It’s our goal to make Synergy the provider that comes to mind when care is needed. Our standards are extremely high and we’ll do whatever it takes to match every client with a caregiver that will not only meet but exceed their needs.”
