Freedom Life Services is a new home and community based service provider emerging on the scene in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as a result of the owner's personal and professional experience in the industry. Our services include Adult Day Care, Personal Care Assistance, Supervised Independent Living, Supported Employment, Respite Care, Home Health and Group Home care. Currently, we have opened the Adult Day Care and the Personal Care Assistance modules. 

  • The State of Louisiana ranks in the second highest percentile of adults who receive government assistance (30-35% of the state’s population)
  • 33.8% of those recipients have disabilities
  • 17.2% of those recipients are receiving Medicaid and are experiencing difficulty in self-care and independent living
  • There is a shortage of qualified services to handle the needs of this growing population
  • Because of the inadequacy, these individuals are faced with institutionalization, when they are capable of living independently with support

To respond to this urgent need, we would like to escalate our efforts to open the Supervised Independent Living and Supported Employment modules.  

  • Supervised Independent Living Services ─ necessary training, social skills and medical services to enable a person who has mental illness or a developmental disability to live as independently as possible in the community.
  • Supported Employment―a system of supports for people with disabilities in regards to ongoing employment in a variety of areas including:  job search and development, job coaches, job retention, transportation; assistive technology, specialized job training, and individually tailored supervision.

These are substantial programs and require a great deal of funding to start-up in order meet the requirements of Medicaid which include program resources (furnishing residences, adaptive equipment, transportation services, and basic life’s necessity) and professional staffing.

We exist with the passion and drive to service all individuals equally with EXCELLENCE in the healthcare field. EVERYONE wants their loved one to be cared for with the level of care in which they would provide. We further believe, these individuals deserve a chance to be a functioning part of their community and to coexist with their neighbors.

Help us with a contribution of any size to reach our $50,000 goal. 

The Story Behind Freedom Life Services

The owner's grandmother fell ill at the family's Easter dinner in 2007 and became unresponsive and rushed to the emergency room. Once there, the once mobile senior was rendered immobile. She could no longer walk. Tests were run and she received a pacemaker and was not recommended for surgery on both knees due to her age and the rehabilitation that would be necessary for her recovery.

Life would change for everyone almost overnight. She could not be released from the hospital until 24-hour care was in place. In the State of Louisiana and across the country, there are FAR more people in need of care than providers available. Therefore, the eligible Medicaid recipient for personal care assistance was yet again rendered helpless as there was a 2-YEAR WAITING LIST to receive services. Options were limited due to her income and her family's ability to help fund her care. She was reluctantly placed in a nursing home where she currently resides at the wonderful age of 96.

As a result, the vision of Freedom Life Services was born. Today, we have an Adult Day Care facility, an administrative office, recreational area, professional and qualified staff ready to assist retired citizens, the elderly and individuals with mental and physical disabilities. We currently are able to service individuals that are able to pay privately for their care - which is an honor but still not where the greatest need exists.

Thank you in advance for your support.
