Helping Seniors in the Acadiana area
Home Instead Senior Care franchise owner, Carol Martin has a passion for improving the quality of life for seniors and their families in this community. Her staff has provided non-medical homecare to seniors in the Lafayette area since 2001. “We are committed to helping our community’s seniors to maintain their dignity and independence. There are many things that make home special, but it’s the comfort and confidence that our seniors enjoy while living there that is important to us”, says Martin. That’s why Home Instead Senior Care provides assistance with those daily activities that aren’t as easy as they used to be. This allows seniors to continue to live in their own home, surrounded by their memories and the things that they love.
We are your trusted provider of comprehensive companionship and home care services for seniors throughout Lafayette, Acadia, St. Martin, St. Landry, Evangeline and Vermilion parishes.
Our services are designed for practically any living arrangement where an older or disabled adult needs assistance of any kind with day-to-day activities. Our office is located at 312 Guilbeau Road, Suite 46, in Lafayette, Louisiana. We are open from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday but are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
Home Instead Senior Care offers a wide range of non-medical services that can be customized to the client’s needs, so the senior gets exactly the help they need. Our CAREGivers are kind, professional and compassionate and truly enjoy working with seniors. They are extensively screened, insured, bonded and participate in a thorough, multi-phased training program, exclusive only to Home Instead Senior Care.
CAREGiver Resource and Training Center
Our Lafayette office houses our “CAREGiver Resource and Training Center”. The Center includes a CAREGiver library with printed and video resources, a classroom and a “hands on” training lab complete with bed, hoyer lift, bedside commode, gait belt, draw sheets and other assistive devices. Our qualified Trainer provides instruction on the proper use of these devices as part of our multi-phased safety and CAREGiver training.
To ensure that the relationship between Client and CAREGiver is exceeding expectations, our office conducts periodic quality assurance visits to the client’s home. And unlike many other agencies, because our CAREGivers are employees, you do not have to worry about scheduling, taxes, insurance, or workers’ compensation responsibilities.
Home Instead Senior Care demonstrates commitment to quality care through our proprietary PEAQ program – Pursuing Excellence by Advancing Quality. In fact, we’ve commissioned J.D. Power and Associates to routinely survey CAREGivers and clients to ensure consistent delivery of high-quality service. In our latest survey, 95% of past and current clients said they would use Home Instead Senior Care again and would refer us to others.
Whether you are looking for someone to help just a few hours a week, or need more comprehensive 24-hour assistance, we can provide companionship, personal care, meal preparation, medication reminders, Alzheimer’s & dementia care, and assist with errands and incidental transportation.
Home Instead Senior Care’s Lafayette office offers competitive rates and can provide non-medical homecare in Lafayette, Acadia, St. Martin, St. Landry, Evangeline & Vermilion parishes. We have been under the same ownership for 9years and are actively involved with several non-profit organizations within our community including the Alzheimer’s Association and Councils on Aging. Our office also sponsors the “Be a Santa to a Senior” program, which provides hundreds of Christmas gifts to local seniors every year.
We believe that personally getting to know our client’s needs and desires is crucial in developing a successful caregiving experience. Developing a lasting partnership and caring relationship between a senior and their CAREGiver is what’s most important to us.
