Greenfield, WI– June 30, 2010 – As unemployment in Milwaukee County hovers around 10%, local business owner Ruth Busalacchi, is doing something about it – she’shiring.

Busalacchi is part of the nationwide network of Synergy HomeCare franchises.  Tough economic times have given Busalacchi, owner of Synergy HomeCare of Milwaukee County, an opportunity boost to her local community’s economy. “The need for the best home care services is growing here in Milwaukee, just like the rest of the country, as our Baby Boomers age” she says.  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statisticspredicts that even in the economic downturn the number of professional caregivers will grow nationwide by 48% to 2.5 million in the next 8 years.

“The other big factor is the recent passage into law of the Jobs Bill, or Hire Act, which gives employers some additional incentive to hire people who have worked less than 40 hours in the previous 60 days” said Busalacchi.

  “I’ve seen two types of wonderful caregivers apply for positions in the past few months; students from  the School of Nursing and  the Medical Assistant Program, seeking part time work to help pay for tuition and also experienced in-home caregivers returning to the workforce” she said.

The two types of caregivers are an ideal match for Synergy HomeCare.  The flexibility of the job works well with student schedules, and provides them supervised hands-on practical training.  Experienced professionals going back to work means clients are being cared for by someone already dedicated to caring for people. 

The new Synergy HomeCare office is situated near Layton Avenue on 76th Street, just south of Olive Garden.  The Greenfield office is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday providing care services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “Our mission: to ensure that each and every person receives unique and dignified care”.
