Residential care homes in New Orleans may appeal to seniors who value smaller, more close-knit communities and many opportunities for socialization. New Orleans care homes typically take in fewer residents, meaning older adults know each resident in the home and develop strong friendships.

A Place for Mom will work with you to understand the cost of care homes.

Care Homes in New Orleans, LA

Residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

Cost of Care Homes in New Orleans, LA

The cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.

A Place for Mom’s local Senior Living Advisors can help find the right residential care home in New Orleans for you or your loved one.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

New Orleans is the beating heart of Cajun Country with its delicious food, good music, and friendly people. As one of the oldest cities in the United States, the cobblestone streets beneath your feet are a testament to over 300 years of history. Historical sites and buildings can be found all across the city, but the most iconic area would have to be the French Quarter.

Overflowing with fabulous restaurants and bars, there is a wide variety of options for fine dining and shows. Nowhere better is the cuisine of New Orleans put on display than at Jazz Fest, as restaurants from all over the city come together to offer their premiere dishes. Music is especially important to the city, with many venues hosting live bands and choirs most nights of the week. The annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is a local favorite offering tons of live music, running from gospel to Jazz to contemporary to Pop.

One of the most popular museums in the city is the award-winning National WW2 Museum which gives patrons a comprehensive glimpse into the U.S. involvement in the Pacific and European Theaters. New Orleans is home to two professional sports teams, the New Orleans Saints in the NFL and the New Orleans Pelicans in the NBA.
