“Cold Weather Companions” help seniors survive the dangers of winter
Extreme winter weather leaves thousands of senior citizens homebound and vulnerable. With the ice and snow piling up again, many seniors can’t even open their front door, let alone get out on the dangerous, icy roads to get to the pharmacy, the grocery store or the doctor’s office.
That’s why SYNERGY HomeCare, a leading national non-medical in-home care company, with an office in your area has created “Cold Weather Companions” to help seniors get the help and companionship they need this winter. Caregivers are working extra hard to help seniors stay safe, keep their pantries stocked, prescriptions filled and cope with cabin fever.
“When severe winter weather hits, seniors can feel trapped, frightened and alone. We’re asking our caregivers to go above and beyond to be Cold Weather Companions,”says Rick Basch, President of SYNERGY HomeCare. “We already assist seniors with daily tasks, but now many of them will need even more help. No matter how difficult it might be, we are committed to providing the resources they need.”
