Tell us about Poydras Home’s new acquisition?
Erin: Poydras Home is reaching deeper into the Greater New Orleans area to fulfill the diverse care needs of even more seniors with the acquisition of an in-home, sitter companion services company: Home Care Solutions.
Tell us about the need you see for this in the community?
Erin: Poydras Home (a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in Uptown New Orleans offering Independent Living, Assisted Living, Nursing Care, Memory Support and an Adult Day Program) recognizes that community living is not the only option available to our aging population. Following national industry trends, many CCRCs are now offering support within the home through the acquisition of in-home sitter companion service providers to be able to serve seniors who choose to remain at home.
What’s makes Poydras Home different?
Erin: Poydras Home celebrated its 200th birthday in 2017, and maintains historic architecture within expansive, park-like grounds.

What’s unique about Home Care Solutions?
Dianne: Home Care Solutions is the only local in home sitter companion services provider to also offer Aging Life Care Management services, personally advising seniors and their families as they face a wide variety of healthcare choices.
Will it be a physical merger? How can people get in touch now with Home Care Solutions?
Dianne: Home Care Solutions will continue to deliver their menu of services out of their current office location in Metairie.
Is this a one-stop solution, and if so, how should people approach the new company?
Dianne: Home Care Solutions will keep its name and will continue to operate as it did before.
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Erin: This exciting new venture will allow greater flexibility for both Poydras Home and Home Care Solutions to meet the growing needs of more New Orleanians as they age.
