Experienced Physical Therapist Launches New Personalized Care Resource in Her Community

Tempe, Ariz. (March 12, 2024) – SYNERGY HomeCare, the nation’s fastest-growing in-home care franchise and an Entrepreneur 500-ranked enterprise, has announced its newest franchise in Eastern Texas, SYNERGY HomeCare of Tyler.

The company is led by Sherry Carag, a physical therapist who understands the power of having a strong support system.

Headquartered at 645 S. Broadway, Suite 3, in Tyler, the company assists residents living in Tyler, Lindale, Longview, Kilgore and Gilmer with a wide variety of non-medical in-home care options from companion care to personal care and respite care.

Carag recognized the growing need in her 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. According to the AARP, over 90% of this demographic reports they want to remain in their own home for as long as possible.

Carag is originally from the Philippines, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Physical Therapy in 2002 and her master’s degree in 2012. After moving to the United States in 2016, she pursued her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and started an MBA program. She brings her strong culture of valuing and caring for family members everywhere she goes, making her transition into home care a smooth process.

Starting a new life in the U.S. wasn’t easy for Carag and she appreciates the importance of having support when you need it most.

“Caring for people is what I am made for,” said Carag. “At SYNERGY HomeCare of Tyler, we recognize our client’s needs, we know the quality of service they deserve, and we plan to be a lasting resource for both our clients and our employees.”

Carag expects the aging community to grow rapidly in the coming years. Many will rely on caregivers for assistance with cooking, shopping, running errands, doing light housekeeping or going for walks. Some may even require personal care, such as help with bathing, dressing, or using the toilet.

SYNERGY HomeCare of Tyler is currently looking to add to its team of diverse caregivers. While licensed Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) are ideal candidates, Carag will provide training and certification to anyone looking to enter the field of caregiving. Caring, compassionate people with a reverence for older adults are invited to apply by visiting her website or calling (903) 752-8899.

SYNERGY HomeCare 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.
