In-home Care for Disabled Elderly and Adults

Our Personal Care Programs

With Arc of Acadiana’s long-term personal care services (PCS), elderly and adults disabled through accident or illness can receive supportive services in the comfort of their own homes. 

We offer transportation and other services, including activities of daily living (ADL) assistance and some instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) support such as light housekeeping, preparing meals, shopping and medication reminders for individuals who meet eligibility requirements.

Individual & Family Support

The Arc of Acadiana is committed to supporting all people with developmental disabilities as they pursue their dreams, wants and needs. We create custom-tailored supported living programs based on each individual client’s capabilities and goals. This both enhances our clients’ quality of life, and provides support for the families who care for them.

Arc of Acadiana’s philosophy is that people with developmental disabilities deserve to live, work and play in the least restrictive environment possible, with the support systems they require to be safe and successful. The IFS/SL Program provides whatever degree of assisted living is needed to enable those rights, whether the client currently lives independently or with family.
