How the Business Got Started

Penchant Homecare Services, Inc opened its doors in 2006. Here’s why.

Our owner, Monique Kinard, decided to start this company due to the concern of providing care to her 66-year-old mohter who suffered a knee ingury before evacuating from New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Her mother also had other medical concerns. Kinard’s mother had to have knee surgery, physical therapy, and numerous visits to the doctor. Our owner, along with her husband, worked full-time jobs with four kids and struggled with determining how to take care of her mother. Kinard’s family’s family life changed quickly while trying to figure out who would take her mother to the doctor – and so forth.

After months of Kinard trying to be a superstar, she asked herself what quality of life she could provide her family. She then decided to start a company that would offer a quality service to the elderly and their families at an affordable price.

Our owner understands everyone’s story is not quite like hers. We know everyone faces similar situations in which the lives of our loved ones may become a great concern. “We all cannot make the decision I chose, therefore, I wanted to provide a service that will benefit the growing needs within the elderly community and their families,” says Kinard.

Kinard chose the name Penchant because it means “a strong liking.” To provide this type of care for people is not just a decision to quit a job; it’s a desire to provide quality care with compassion, honesty, tenderness, faithfulness, and devotion. We invite clients to trust the name Penchant Companion Care Services, LLC.

Our promise is to serve each and every person with dignity and the respect they deserve. God Bless!
