Baton Rouge In-Home Care Services for Your Loved Ones
Home is where the heart is, so they say, and they were absolutely right. The place we call home is the first place where we ever feel secure, a place we grow up wishing to leave, and a place where we grow old wishing to go back to. Here in Baton Rouge, these sentiments are stronger than anywhere else. As we age, home can become a symbol of comfort to us when so many other things in our lives bring uncertainty and change. Our in-home senior care services serve to counteract the process of aging and allow our clients to live independently and keep living in their own home.
CARE, INC focuses on a total package approach to in-home care and their friendly and well trained staff has an array of skills that can assist any senior no matter what point in the aging process they are. This includes simple companionship, home helper services, transportation and escort service, as well as hospice care, should it ever be needed. We know every client will have vastly different needs, and so we tailor in-home care specifically to their situation and then adjust as those needs change over time.
In-home care is intended to provide independence for seniors by assisting with the daily activities of living. Here are just some of the in-home care services that CARE, INC provides in Baton Rouge:
- Meal preparation and grocery shopping
- Medication reminders
- Escort to doctor visits or other medical appointments
- Beauty salon visits and shopping escort
- Washing and folding laundry
- Light housekeeping and cleaning
- Companionship and social escort
- Personal services and hygiene
- Bathing and dressing
- Incontinence care and mobility assistance
- Transportation services and prescription pick-up
- Hospice support and respite for family caregivers
CARE, INC understands that the financial situation your loved one is in can be complicated; and insurance companies can have limits and restrictions that can be a concern when deciding how to care for them. Because of this, we have private pay plans for in-home care and/or sitting services. Paying for in-home care this way can often be more cost effective than the monthly cost of assisted living centers or retirement communities. Private pay care allows the client to use our services short term, sporadically when needed, or permanently and gives them access to our 24-hours support.

When you can’t visit your loved one face-to-face, it is important to stay in touch from a distance. Relationships keep everyone living a healthier and fuller life, and sometimes we have to think of creative ways to maintain and foster these relationships.
While Louisiana isn’t known for the blistery climates up north, it certainly gets cold enough that poor preparation can result in a lot of discomfort. The elder population is especially at risk, but there are plenty of options to keep everyone safe.
