95. Synergy HomeCare of Barrington Celebrates Six Years of Service

 For six years, Synergy HomeCare has provided home-based, non-medical services to the Barrington area and beyond. Owner Diego Uribe and his dedicated team work around the clock to ensure that Synergy’s team of highly trained caregivers delivers the very best care to their clients. As they celebrate their sixth anniversary this month, they’re taking time to look back on what they’ve learned, and ahead to a growing future.
When Diego Uribe’s mother, Gladys Uribe, began her battle with cancer, Diego knew he would do whatever he could to ease her suffering and maintain her quality of life. “She had gone to the gym twice a day for as long as I could remember–she was a very healthy woman,” Diego recalls. “So to see her in pain, and to watch her health decline…it was a very difficult thing.”
Diego, a longtime Barrington resident, had to piece together resources in the Houston, Texas, area to provide the care his mother needed. Though there were many services available for medical and non-medical care, they were impersonal and required extensive coordination from a distance.
“I was upset by the lack of personal attention my mother received. She deserved better than that.”
It was a few years after his mother’s passing that Diego decided to leave his corporate job to pursue a career in home care services.
As Diego researched the home care industry, he was drawn to Synergy HomeCare’s business structure. “It provided some helpful tools for us as we were just starting out,” he says. So in March of 2008, Diego started the first Synergy HomeCare franchise in Illinois……

259. A Day of Celebration & Healing with Christina Currie Events

 Hala Dairi had never worked with an event planner before she met Christina Currie, and hired her to plan a mother/daughter brunch. Now, she’ll never work with another one: Christina is her one and only.
Hala, a North Barrington resident, hadn’t entertained on a large scale in her new home since it was built in 2006. In the intervening years, she attended many events at friends’ homes, but never hosted herself. “With moving and working, it was a really busy time,” Hala recalls. A mother of three, she also manages her husband, pulmonologist Dr. Firas Dairi’s, area medical office. But as her second child approached college age, she felt it was time to reach out to her friends with a warm invitation.
When Hala drew up her guest list, it totaled close to 80—an intimidating number.  “I thought, I cannot do it myself.”
She found Christina Currie Events on the internet, and felt an immediate connection.
“I liked her because she’s from Barrington, and would know what I was looking for.”
Christina, who is known for giving her undivided attention to clients, met with Hala at her home.
The first meeting took about an hour, during which she learned Hala’s vision for her event—and noticed many details about her personal style.
“I took cues from their home, which is filled with linens and soft, round lights,” Christina says.
This vision, coupled with her knowledge of Hala’s preferences, were enough to set the experienced event planner’s wheels in motion.
Hala, who is of Syrian descent, wanted her friends and family to feel uniquely cared for in the midst of turmoil. She also wanted to celebrate her two daughters, Layal (18) and Nawal (14). “It [the conflict in Syria] stopped everyone from enjoying life. We’re always talking, thinking about it,” Hala laments. “My kids are fed up—we’re not going out. But kids grow up. You cannot stop living. I wanted everybody to come and just enjoy each other.”
Christina immediately understood the significance of the event……

Well, it’s official! We just got the call from Dr. Brian Harris at the @Barrington_220 school District that it’s our first “Snow Day” since “E-Leaning” became a thing we know so well. BUT it’s actually a “Distance Learning Day” so our students still have to report to school, from home. God bless you, teachers!
🤪
So it goes that the “Snow Days” we once knew where snow actually cancelled school for the day are now a thing of the past. At least there will be some good sledding & snow man building today! Please share & tag #365Barrington or email Liz@365Barrington.com if you capture any fun snow pics.
⛄️
Got something big you want to do this year? Might as well Jump! No better day to begin than today but, if it involves being outside, don’t forget your snow boots. And your snow pants. And your Bernie mittens. This January 26th is going to be a snowy one in Barrington!
❄️
If today is your birthday, you have something in common with Eddie Van Halen. He was born on this day in 1957. Van Halen’s song, Jump was released in December, 1983, back when big hair was all the rage and I was 10 years old.
🎸
We’re sharing Jump and Van Halen’s classic music video as our song of the day. Take a look plus find our stories from this day in #BarringtonHistory TODAY at BarringtonDaily.com #LinkInBio or right here: https://wp.me/p1NGbX-1eGz
