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.

Our Mission

To ensure that each and every person receives unique and dignified care. To educate our community about the resources and benefits available to you and your loved one.

Complimentary In-Home Assessments

Let us help you make the critical decisions surrounding you or your loved ones in-home care needs. At SYNERGY HomeCare, we offer a team approach to supportive services for seniors and individuals with a variety of physical disabilities of all ages.

My Background

As the owner and operator, I have more than 30 years of experience directing and leading organizations.  My expertise has been in the development of residential and day programming for a diverse population. There is nothing I’d rather do with my life than help people of all ages live comfortably and confidently, wherever home may be.

Ruth Busalacchi | Owner

I was inspired to open SYNERGY HomeCare in 2010, after my personal family experience. At that time, I was a Director of Special Needs, helping individuals find the right residential services for their unique circumstance. So, when my father’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease resulted in his needing care to stay at home, I recognized that HomeCare was a solution for my family by offering personal care, housekeeping, and companionship. In addition to my siblings and I worried about my mother as her role being a Caregiver increased. Ultimately, HomeCare was our solution to ensuring dignity of choice for my Father, and Respite Care in the home for my mother.

My family faced many of the same questions and decisions that you and your loved ones are experiencing. We have a depth of understanding about the challenges; and rewards, when faced with choices about Long- or Short-Term Care.

I am proud to have supported over two thousand families on their unique journey. I know from personal experience that the small acts of kindness from a caregiver can last a lifetime in your memories. At SYNERGY HomeCare, we understand and aim to provide unique and dignified care for every client and family we serve.

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!

Ruth’s story: my dad’s journey is also a gift for others

I was inspired to open SYNERGY HomeCare in 2010, after my personal family experience.  At that time, I was a director of special needs, helping individuals find the right residential services for their unique circumstance.  When my father’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease resulted in him needing care to remain living in the home he loved, I recognized that home care was a solution for him and my family. In addition to my siblings and I worried about my mother as the demands of her new role as my dad’s caregiver increased. Ultimately, home care was our solution to ensuring dignity of choice for my father, and respite care in the home for my mother.

My family faced many of the same questions and decisions that you and your loved ones are experiencing. We have a depth of understanding about the challenges and rewards when faced with choices about long-or short-term care. The care and confidence you will receive from SYNERGY HomeCare is also a gift from my father, as he’s the catalyst behind me finding my true passion and helping thousands of people just like you navigate uncertain times with confidence and compassion.
