 If you have a loved one who needs expert home care, it may be time to find an adult sitter. Adult sitters can provide a broad range of elderlyservices, from preparing meals to bill paying and transportation services. Their goal is to provide whatever the senior needs in order for them to remain independent in their own homes. Led by Dr. Parick Haydel, KSI Companion Care (located in Houma, LA) has adult sitters who can help your loved ones at every stage of their lives.

What is an adult and elderly sitter?

Adult and elderly sitters allow adults and seniors to live at home safely when they can no longer function independently. They have the ability to handle medical emergencies and help with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) such as walking, eating meals, cleaning, cooking, taking medications and providing companionship. As an added bonus, having someone to talk to who provides emotional support promotes mental wellness and greater levels of happiness. Adult sitters have a regular weekly schedule with the person they are caring for.

What are the benefits of adult sitter services?

Rest easy when your loved one is down the hall with an adult sitter. Your mind will be free to focus on taking care of errands, working, or getting some sleep knowing that your loved one has things covered.
