OVERVIEW

Caring for elders in Louisiana

Since 2015, Caregiver Homes of Louisiana’s community-based program has helped families provide high-quality, 24-hour care for an elder at home or people with disabilities in need of physical care and assistance. We help make it possible for a family member or friend to become the primary in-home caregiver by providing them with the support and financial assistance they need. In Louisiana, our Structured Family Caregiving model is known as Monitored In-Home Caregiving (MIHC).
