Nursing Homes in Louisiana

As families search for senior 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.

There are more than 45 nursing homes in Louisiana. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of nursing homes in Louisiana to help you find the community that fits your needs and budget.

The median monthly cost of a private room in a nursing home in Louisiana is about $5,700, according to Genworth.

Sunrise at Siegen in Baton Rouge, LA
3.6

I think no matter how prepared you are, you're not going to cover everything. It's a learning experience. Try to have patience and give things time. And every one of our loved one's needs are different, like fingerprints. Try not to beat yourself up too bad about your decision. Looking back on the several months my loved one has been there now, it seems to have gotten better, and it does seem to have been the best answer. It's a lot of money, but they're able to provide the extra care we're not able to. And I think she's happier. She gets to focus on the here and now. I promised my father that I would keep her safe, and I think with Sunrise that I've met that obligation. The staff are absolutely very friendly. Activities seem to be good. Talking to my loved one, she's raved about someone they had come by to sing one night, and they play lots of games. They send out a newsletter. I'm sure that there are more expensive, better places, and I know there are less expensive, worse places. So here locally in the Baton Rouge area, I would put them in the top two thirds of places. It's terrible that money has to come down to a consideration for something like this, but that's life. But I think we've made the right choice. It's in a good location for our family to stop by and visit. It's convenient right off the highway. I think it was the right call for us.

The Pearl at Jamestown in Baton Rouge, LA
4.3

Mom has been a resident for 4 months and is pleased with the facility, the staff and activities. With memory care being the primary focus, we as a family are more than pleased with her level of care and attention she receives on a daily basis. Respect, kindness, patience, loving, friendly are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind when I think of the staff at The Pearl at Jamestown. Our family highly recommends this facility for memory impaired individuals. Daily activities planned in advance are aimed at exercising cognitive skills and helps residents engage and participate at their own level. What a gem!

The Claiborne at Shoe Creek in Central, LA

The community is kept clean, we have had no problems with the staff they are friendly. Sometimes the people who handle the laundry service lose some of our loved ones clothes, but that is about the only issue we are having. We haven't been able to be there for meal time but by the sound of it are loved one is enjoying the meals. She is always participating in the activities they offer.

  • Health care services
  • Complimentary transportation
  • 24-hour care and supervision
