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 Plymouth resident Mitch Bloom will open his own Synergy HomeCare at 7575 Golden Valley Road on April 15th. Synergy HomeCare has aggressive growth plans for Minnesota, with plans to open 10 additional locations in the state over the next three years.
As a college senior in 1987, Bloom was recruited by CUTCO Cutlery as a sales associate and moved up the ranks over the next 20 years to become the division manager overseeing CUTCO contractors throughout Minnesota and the Dakotas. Though he enjoyed and excelled at his job – Bloom produced over $45 million in sales for the company and was inducted into the CUTCO Hall of Fame in 1998 – his rigorous schedule afforded little time to spend with his wife and two kids so he left the company in July of 2008 to pursue an opportunity all his own. After considering a variety of concepts, Bloom found Synergy HomeCare to be a perfect fit for the area’s aging population.
“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 Bloom, 45. “The need for this type of service is only going to increase as time goes on and I am 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 home 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, the disabled and anyone who needs help with daily activities. Though his existing coverage area – which includes Hennepin and Carver counties – is quite large, Bloom hopes to expand his territory further within the next year 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 Bloom. “It’s my goal to make Synergy the provider that comes to mind when care is needed. My standards are extremely high and I’ll do whatever it takes to match every client with a caregiver that will not only meet but exceed their needs.”
