Find out how our adult and elderly caregivers can improve your loved one’s quality of life.

Do you have an aging parent that would like to stay in their own home? Does a family member have certain physical or mental challenges that make everyday habits and practices such as grooming, grocery shopping, and laundry more difficult? If so, our elderly and adult sitters here in Houma, LA, can provide your loved one with compassionate non-medical care and companionship in the home.

What is an adult or elderly sitter?

Our elderly sitters are warm, friendly caregivers who come to your Houma, LA, home to provide non-medical assistance and care to senior citizens and adults with special needs. Some people require only part-time assistance from our sitters while others may require more full-time care. A lot will depend on the limitations and needs of our clients, which we would be happy to discuss further during your consultation.

Who can benefit from companion care and services?

We work with many seniors to provide them with trustworthy, long-term care to ensure that they have what they need to continue staying as independent as possible while at home. Our companion services provide peace of mind to our clients and their families, knowing that there is someone who can care for and provide assistance during the day and evening to help aging individuals maintain their independence.

Of course, our services aren’t just designed for seniors. We also work with adults of all ages who have various physical and mental limitations, giving them freedom, independence, and even friendship.

What services does an elderly or adult sitter offer?

Here at KSI Companion Care, we provide a wide range of services and duties to our clients, making sure that they feel safe, happy, and cared for in their own homes.

  • Personal care assistance (grooming; bathing; oral hygiene)
  • Preparing light meals and helping with meal clean up
  • Playing games and participating in activities and stimulating conversation
  • Daily medication reminders and reading medication labels

Sometimes the best decision you can make for your family is to choose companion care.adult sitter

As we get older it can be difficult to get certain tasks done around the house. Whether you are wheelchair bound or dealing with a chronic illness, there are many reasons adults and senior citizens turn to KSI Companion Care in Houma, LA. Dr. Patrick Haydel is here to tell you when an adult sitter may be the best choice for your loved one.

There are many people who can benefit from companion care in Houma, LA, and might not even realize it. Here at KSI Companion Care, we offer personal assistance, meal preparation, housekeeping, medication reminders and social interaction. We know how important it is for aging adults to be able to be as self-sufficient as possible for as long as possible.

In fact, more and more senior citizens are choosing to stay in their home than to go to assisted living or nursing homes. Our goal as your companion care provider is to help make day-to-day tasks easier on your loved ones so they can continue to lead their best lives from the comfort of their own homes.

Whether you or a family member requires at-home daily care, we can help. We work with many people who have an array of physical and cognitive impairments that make it difficult to complete certain everyday tasks. An adult sitter is also a great option for an aging parent who might be frail and unable to safely get around the house. By having an adult sitter in the house they can complete those tasks for your loved one while also giving you and your family peace of mind knowing that they are being cared for.

Furthermore, we know that a lot of older adults don’t get the social interactions they need. As humans, we are social beings and we need regular social engagement for our cognitive and mental wellbeing. The lack of outside interaction can greatly impact a person’s quality of life.

Whether a family member needs reminders to take their medication, they need help making meals or they require help getting ready, we have an adult sitter in Houma, LA, who can meet these needs with a smile and open arms. Call KSI Companion Care today to schedule a consultation.
