SYNERGY HomeCare Announces Newest Franchise in Alabaster, Alabama

Experienced Social Worker and Dedicated Community Volunteer Transitions into HomeCare Ownership

March 09, 2023 // Franchising.com // Gilbert, Ariz. - SYNERGY HomeCare has a new location based in Alabaster, Alabama.

The company is owned and operated by Jessica Ott, who has dedicated her career to social work and caregiving and credits her high work ethic to three core values: competence, confidence and compassion.

Headquartered at 470 First Street SW in Alabaster, the company serves residents of not only Alabaster, but also the nearby areas of Calera, Brierfield, Columbiana, Jamison, Montevallo, Shelby, Thorsby and Wilsonville. SYNERGY HomeCare provides clients with a wide variety of non-medical care options, from companion care to personal care to specialized care for people with chronic health conditions or recovering from illness or surgery.

Jessica saw a 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. A recent AARP survey found that 75% of those 65+ report they want to remain in their current residence for as long as possible.

Although the opening of SYNERGY HomeCare in Alabaster represents Jessica’s first venture into business ownership, it is only the latest effort in a long list of community service that she has carried out throughout her life. After obtaining degrees in science and psychology, as well as a master’s in social work, Jessica began working with the geriatric community in rehabilitation hospitals, as well as in child development settings as a family service worker. Along the way, she also dedicated herself to multiple community-facing extracurricular activities, such as creating and operating holiday food drives and fundraisers, creating memorandums of understanding (MOUs) between community organizations to benefit local residents, and engaging with multiple charitable community programs. Throughout all of these experiences, Jessica has become extremely well-versed in personalized service; it has also given her an outlet to provide care to more than just her two boys at home.

Originally, Jessica believed that her calling was working with children. However, during her internship for her master’s degree, she discovered her love for home care. While working alongside the older adult population, she was able to witness the impact that caregivers have on vulnerable demographics and how much they can directly improve their quality of life.

“Throughout my entire life, my priority has always been giving back,” says Jessica. “In everything I do, my approach is always centered around integrity, dignity and highlighting the worth of other people.”

SYNERGY HomeCare focuses on multiple types of in-home care. In addition to providing older people with assistance in maintaining their independence, Jessica also want to provide childcare, backup care and assistance to expecting families.

According to Jessica, the majority of her clients lack a local support system and need to rely on 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,” Jessica explained. “As a member of the community, it’s a privilege to be a resource that can help remedy this for my neighbors, friends, and family. Offering this peace of mind is beyond fulfilling.”

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.
