Caring For You at Home
In March 2019, Leading Home Care opened a branch office in Opelousas with three employees to better serve the needs of clients in both Evangeline Parish and St. Landry Parish. Conveniently located off of I-49 in the heart of Opelousas, this office allows our team to better serve the needs of clients in Opelousas, Ville Platte, Eunice, and Grand Couteau/Sunset.
Our talented Opelousas team has grown to seven including Staffing Specialists and Client Care Managers with combined experiences of working with families in the areas of occupational and physical therapy, senior and elder care, and developmental disabilities. This team is led by a dedicated Branch Manager Courtney Citizen, a long-time advocate and supporter of the special needs community.
