SYNERGY HomeCare, a leading national in-home care franchise, has announced the launch of SYNERGY HomeCare of Lake Ridge. The company is led by Monica and David Conroy.
Headquartered at 2239-M Tackett’s Mill Dr., Lake Ridge, the company serves cities within northern Prince Willian and southern Fairfax counties.
SYNERGY HomeCare of Lake Ridge provides clients with a wide variety of non-medical care options, from companion care and personal care to specialized care for people who have chronic health conditions or are recovering from illness or surgery.
Monica and David saw a growing need in their community for these services, particularly among Baby Boomers. U.S. Census statistics show that 10,000 Baby Boomers are turning 65 every day and that by 2030, there will be more than 70 million people over the age of 65. A recent AARP survey found that 75% of those 65+ report wanting to remain in their current residence for as long as possible.
As members of the Sandwich Generation, Monica and David are also seeing friends and colleagues struggling with caring for aging parents and children with special needs. Their own family history includes recovery from health issues and Monica’s mother is living with Parkinson’s halfway across the country. Their goal is to offer affordable solutions tailored to individual needs, including respite care.
Prior to opening their SYNERGY HomeCare franchise, both Monica and David have a long history in charitable endeavors, which aligns with a strong desire to provide their community with quality services. Monica worked in public affairs, community affairs and public relations, and was president of the Rotary Club of Washington, D.C., while David worked as a CPA and then served as the general manager of the University Club of Washington, D.C., for 14 years.
SYNERGY HomeCare of Lake Ridge’s main focus of in-home care is for older people who need some assistance in their home to maintain their independence.
According to Monica, the majority of their clients lack a local support system and rely on their caregivers for assistance cooking, shopping, running errands, light housekeeping or going for walks. Some even require personal care such as help bathing, dressing or using the toilet.
“Distance should not keep adult children from being in tune with their aging loved ones to help them maintain their quality of life while aging in place, something that can be accomplished through local in-home care,” she explained.
Monica and David are currently looking to add to their team of diverse caregivers. While licensed Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) are ideal candidates, SYNERGY HomeCare of Lake Ridge will provide training for people looking to enter the field. Caring and compassionate people are invited to apply by visiting synergyhomecare.com/agencies/va/lake-ridge/va13/ or calling 571-677-3500.
“First and foremost, I want my caregivers to know that they are taken care of. My many years of management experience taught me that organizations operate best when all employees work as a familial unit. Not only does this make work more enjoyable, but it also inspires and motivates people. Keeping in touch with our caregivers and getting to know them and their interests is one of our top priorities,” David explained.
SYNERGY HomeCare of Lake Ridge offers competitive hourly rates in addition to flexible shifts perfect for both college students or recent graduates as well as people who are retired and looking to stay active.
