Synergy Homecare in Olympia, WA is focused on keeping your loved ones safe and independent. They take care of your loved ones while providing companionship as well. To them, a senior is only taken care of if they’re able to live a full, happy life.
Recently, Synergy has put the spotlight on some of their caregivers. Suzette, for example, has been providing care for 30 years. She decided to become a caregiver when she saw her own loved one struggling with Alzheimer’s. Her love and compassion for her grandmother made her want to provide care to other seniors struggling with similar disabilities.
Emily is another incredible caregiver at Synergy. As a teenager, she helped provide care for her grandfather who had suffered a stroke. After she began thinking about what she wanted to do for a living in college, she realized that she too was meant to be a caregiver. She is currently working towards her nursing degree so she can continue to help people who need help.

Caregivers are a wonderful breed of people, completely selfless and focused on the needs of others. Make sure to keep an eye on our blog for more examples of caregivers doing what they do best: providing for your loved ones.
