Manny Boudreaux, Training Expert

Manny Bourdreaux is the in house training expert for Home Instead Senior Care. A committed employee, Manny feels he was just made to help people learn. Being the strong, silent type, his training focus is "hands on," demonstrating techniques to CAREGivers, rather than lecturing. He is always the first person at the office in the morning and the last to leave--begging the question "does he ever go home?" The staff would literally have to drag him from the training room. Because of this uncompromising dependability--he has never missed a training class--and his consistent involvement in the office, he is the perfect choice to blog about what goes on at HISC. His experience and expertise are extremely beneficial to the CAREGivers. Manny can be reached directly at seniorcare@homeinsteadla.net.

About the Owners

Matt Cohn is a native of Baton Rouge and has been the proud owner of Home Instead Senior Care since February 2001. He and his wife Ainsley have two sons: Grant and Everett. Matt is a graduate of Catholic High School in Baton Rouge and Louisiana State University. It was at LSU that he learned of the Home Instead Senior Care opportunity when the company's founder, Paul Hogan, was speaking to a franchising course that Matt was enrolled. After recognizing the need for this service in both his and Ainsley's family, he decided to pursue a franchise of his own.
Ainsley Cohn, a graduate of St. Joseph's Academy and the Louisiana State University Holmes program, holds a Master's degree in Education. "Family is extremely important to me," says Ainsley. "That is why it is so rewarding to see not only how Home Instead Senior Care makes a difference in the lives of our clients, but also in the lives of their family members.  The ability to relieve some of the day-to-day pressures of our clients and their family members means they can spend more time enjoying each other's company."
Both Matt and Ainsley have worked extremely hard over the years to provide their clients with the highest level of ​​​  care, starting with the quality of the management team they employ.
