Youngsters spread the love to seniors

Synergy HomeCare, a non-medical homecare provider, reached out to seniors in retirement, independent and assisted-living communities on Valentine’s Day last month.

The company invited students at seven elementary schools in Federal Way and Auburn to make valentines for seniors. The finished products, part of baskets that also contained snacks, were delivered by Synergy representatives to communities in Federal Way, Auburn, Milton, Puyallup, Sumner and Des Moines.

The project provided “a little love” for those who might otherwise have been forgotten, a Snyergy spokesman said. “We wanted to also help put a smile on the faces of those who may not always have a reason to smile.”

Synergy urged the general public to do the same by making and handing out valentines at senior communities.

Synergy HomeCare is a national franchise whose caregivers work with seniors, expectant moms, and people suffering from sports injuries or debilitating illnesses.
