Assisted Living in Louisiana

As families search for assisted living, Louisiana should stand out for those seeking a tropical climate and a cultural mix unlike anywhere else in the United States.

Louisiana’s positioning at the mouth of the Mississippi River made it a key point of trade throughout Colonial North America, and today in “The Pelican State” you’ll find traditions, cuisine, music, and architecture rooted in African, Haitian, French, Spanish, Italian, and Native American heritages. The geography of Louisiana is also defined by water, as the swamps and wetlands of the Mississippi River Delta — combined with sea-level rise and man-made canals — create an ever-changing coastline where the state’s land borders meet the Gulf of Mexico. The result is a truly unique place, with generations of residents at once embodying a fierce devotion to historical customs and a fluent understanding of new ideas and practices.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with 70 senior living communities in Louisiana that provide assisted living.

The median monthly cost of assisted living in Louisiana is about $3,500.

Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Athens, LA
Brookdale Shreveport
4.9

The atmosphere at Brookdale Shreveport is just so comfortable, when we first walked in we felt such at east. It is a very nice and active environment, you could see the residents interacting with each other and interacting with the staff members. The staff were calling the residents by their names and you could tell they took interest in actually getting to know the residents. There is something going on everyday, the activities are great. They have live entertainment come throughout the week. There is bingo, church related activities, coin collecting groups. We have also been pleased with the value, we think it is very appropriate.

We went with Brookdale Bossier City over others we looked at because of the rating that it had and also we got some references from friends and people we knew. I do think they could provide some more activities for the residents to participate in, but overall the staff are super friendly and helpful. I would recommend the facility to others.

I toured many assisted living places since I was diagnosed in Mayo Clinic on [date removed] with Parkinson's. I got busy checking the assisted living facilities and when I toured the facility again and met some of the residents - the Lord let me know that this was the place for me. And it still is.

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is long-term care for seniors who are generally active and independent, but who require increased supervision and help with some daily tasks.

Services and amenities in assisted living facilities often include:

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response
