Caregiver Consultation

Syntero’s Caregiver Consultation Program puts the focus on caregivers – working to help find solutions to make the role of the caregiver less stressful and challenging. The goal of the program is to help those caring for loved ones by providing information, education, and resources. This program helps the caregiver wade through the vast maze of options and resources available – helping to decrease the stress and confusion. Syntero’s experienced, professional and well-versed staff provide necessary answers you need to help you cope with the demands of care giving and allow you to better focus on meeting the needs of your loved one.

Volunteers serve as one-on-one friendly visitors, drivers, errand runners, and also help with occasional chores. Volunteers are carefully screened and then matched with an appropriate client. Volunteers serve on a regular or as need basis.

Specialized Support Groups Focused on Aging

Through several specialized support groups, Syntero provides therapeutic and social support for widows, widowers, and older adults in a community based setting. Aging presents specific challenges for individuals, and the loss of a spouse or partner as well as declining independence due to physical reasons can be particularly difficult. Trained and compassionate clinicians are available to help older adults navigate and cope with this especially difficult time in life, meeting on a regular basis and presenting information on helpful topics.
