The people behind our home care
PROPELLING LIVES FORWARD
If you’ve been searching for a home care agency for your care or your loved one’s care, then you know there is a sea of sameness in the dozens of home care choices, making it difficult to actually choose one. And we know that can be frustrating.
We’re all about family.
Family is at the core of everything we do – from off-road trips with kids and friends and jeeps held together with duct tape (yup, literally – duct tape!) to annual apple orchard outings with Grandma and Grandpa to fast-paced, maybe slightly-cheating card games with Grandmother – and like you, we cherish those simple moments that turn into special family memories!
Within the last few years, we’ve had loved ones experience life-changing events, prompting our families to search for care options. At times, that search was overwhelming. We have opened SYNERGY HomeCare as a way to help others find the type of care our families looked for – compassionate, considerate and qualified.
We consider it a special privilege to be here for you and your family!
Ron Riggle | Co-Owner
Married to Kim since 1983 and the father of 5 crazy kids, and grandfather to ten crazier grandkids, Ron worked in the IT industry for over 25 years before opening SYNERGY HomeCare. He has a passion for serving others, and an infinite amount of energy – he recently served on the Elkhorn Public School Board, and is an active member of Bethany Lutheran Church. He has worked with Habitat for Humanity for many years, and coached youth athletics for over 20 years. Ron’s business expertise combined with his compassion for others ensure quality and integrity are at the core of what we do at SYNERGY HomeCare!
Kim Riggle | Co-Owner
Kim is Ron’s better half, the proud mama of 5 perpetually embarrassed kids who are stuck with her, and Nonie to the grandkids. She worked in the IT industry for 15 years before becoming executive director of a local non-profit organization serving the community of Elkhorn. Kim has a heart for those in need, which led her to opening SYNERGY HomeCare. She serves on several outreach committees and has served as a council member at Bethany Lutheran Church, is a member of Womenade, a community volunteer and a certified life coach, helping others to find and follow their passions. Kim’s energy, enthusiasm and passion for helping others are at the heart of SYNERGY HomeCare’s commitment to compassionate care!
Our promise to you: care that moves you
Life is in constant motion. From the time we smile our first smile, ride our first bike, find our first home or embrace our first grandchild, it just keeps moving. And a moving life is a full one. But sometimes, life can take a turn that slows us down, or even stops us in our tracks. That’s where SYNERGY HomeCare comes in. To keep the basic needs of your life effortlessly moving forward. So you can focus on what moves you and get the most out of every day.
We guide with purpose
We take a strong lead with a kind hand in what can be a stressful, uncertain time in your life. By charting an assured course and making certain that you and your family members understand what’s happening, we can keep you comfortable every step of the way.
Great care comes from confidence, and confidence is contagious. We know what we’re doing and we’re always striving to do it better. One of the things we do best is relate to people on a personal level. And when you do something well, it breeds confidence. In you, and everyone around you. That’s why our clients, employees and franchise owners are so confident, too.
How we do it:
- We serve beyond the job description.
- We approach the job with a sense of adventure and purpose.
- We take ownership and responsibility over results.
- We quickly spot new opportunities for improvement and act on them.
We know individual people have individual needs
What we do:
We listen and ask questions. That’s the best way to learn how to impact an individual’s life. That’s how we do it. And that’s why we are recognized as an organization that shows an unwavering commitment to understanding people’s needs and providing the care option that best adapts to those needs. This is how we keep you and your life moving forward by being intuitively personal.
How we do it:
- We approach every encounter with compassion, personality and positive energy.
- We inspire others through words.
- We are curious. We ask questions and listen to what’s unspoken.
- We help you set goals. We make you feel as though we are walking with you on your care journey.
Life moves in one direction – forward. No matter your circumstances, SYNERGY HomeCare steps in with effective, comforting, life-affirming care that moves people emotionally and physically forward, from personal assistance and companionship to live-in and even family caregiver respite. We provide full support for fuller lives. Ultimately, we create a feeling of forward momentum, not just in lives but also in the home care industry.
Whether you’re a high-octane octogenarian who just needs a hand, someone confined to bed who needs a little more help, or a person dealing with lifelong disabilities who needs someone to walk beside them on their journey, we’re here to care with whole hearts and open arms.
We know you have questions. And we have answers. When the time is right for you, we would be honored to speak with you. We listen!
