When a parent or another older member of your family is beginning to need help with everyday tasks, yet wishes to retain a level of independence, senior home assistance can be the best choice for them. It may be especially valuable for seniors who live on their own and have lived under the same roof for many years.

Because of physical or mental impairment, they may find it difficult to do everything they once could. To find out just how senior home assistance can help your loved one, get in contact with Dr. Patrick Haydel and his senior home assistance team of KSI Companion Care in Houma, LA.

Home Care

By continuing to live at home your loved one can continue to be independent. With the help of a trained caregiver, they can do so even if everyday errands are out of their reach. From buying groceries to preparing meals and some light housekeeping, their caregiver can make everyday life more manageable.

Personal Care

Personal grooming is another aspect with which a caregiver can assist. How much help is provided depends on your loved one's physical ability. For many who are aging, falls in the bathtub are a real concern and a caregiver can help prevent them. They can also aid in other aspects of grooming as they get ready for the day.


While caregivers can't dispense medications to your loved ones they can help in many other ways to make sure they don't miss their time and don't accidentally overmedicate either. The caregiver can remind your loved one when it's time to take a medication, as well as help them understand the labels, and of course, help them open the bottles when necessary.

Easy Transportation
