2022 Top Louisiana Senior Living Communities

With nearly 200 senior living facilities to choose from in Louisiana, you or a loved one will have options for quality care. But having all those options can also make finding the right senior living facility feel daunting. There are various types of care provided, which can narrow your search. If you’re looking for senior apartments or independent living, that will be a lot different from facilities that provide memory care, skilled nursing support, or other levels of assisted living.

In order to make your search easier, we’ve narrowed our list to the top communities throughout the state of Louisiana. You can also consult the senior living directory to find places close to you. If you’d rather, feel free to contact us for more information, and we’ll help you find the Louisiana senior living facility that’s going to meet your needs, or the one that works for your loved one’s required level of care.

Helping a Loved One Transition to Senior Living
It can be difficult for someone to make the switch from their current home to senior living, but you can help a loved one transition by working with them to find a quality, safe, enjoyable location that provides them with a feel of home and activities they can participate in.

Ranking The Best Louisiana Senior Living Facilities

To get the rankings of Louisiana senior living communities, we looked at a variety of factors. Among these factors were the reviews and ratings that the facilities had online. We also looked to make sure the facilities didn’t have any state violations, and took those into account if they were present. Both recent and older violations were considered, but more recent ones held more weight. Cost was also included, to give a better, overall picture of the value of the facility.

In Louisiana, the average costs for assisted living on a monthly basis are around $3,748. That’s just a few dollars per month higher than a home health aide, and assisted living will generally provide a more comprehensive level of care and security. A private room in a nursing facility, by comparison, will cost approximately $6,000 per month. While the cost of a Louisiana senior living facility certainly matters, taking other factors into account along with the price can help you make the best decision for the future.

Inspired Living Kenner LA

What residents and loved ones have to say about Inspired Living at Kenner:

Wonderful staff and place for my Mom. I can’t stress enough how Amanda Gisclair made the whole sales and move-in experience seamless, calm and a easy transition. This is even more important for residents in Memory Care, like my Mom. There are so many activities and outings for them. A nurse is onsite 24/7. Campbell McClure, the Memory Care Director, spent time with Mom and myself going over what her needs are. He is always visible on the unit. Mom has a great big smile on her face whenever I visit her!! Thank you to the Inspired Living – Kenner team!

senior home care 14

What residents and loved ones have to say about Home Instead Baton Rouge:

We unexpectedly found ourselves needing immediate care for my Dad who had undergone emergency brain surgery. I had no idea who to call to get help. A friend suggested I call Home Instead. I called their office and was IMMEDIATELY taken care of. Within hours I had someone who came to meet with us personally to discuss what care we would need, how often etc. We were overwhelmed and at a loss as to what to do and where to go from there. The Home Instead representative put all of our worries at ease and guided us through the decision making process. I had access to someone 24-7 to rearrange the schedule, ask questions etc. Every sitter that we had was very professional and made my Dad feel comfortable and well cared for. I highly recommend this company.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Magnolia Brook on Siegen Lane:

I have toured and had additional visits to all the facilities in the Baton Rouge area. I knew from the first time meeting Teri, Sherry and Shaun that Magnolia Brook was the place for our family. They were so kind and forthcoming during my many visits. Magnolia Brook isn’t just like home, it is HOME!! I have two family members there. One in assisted living and the other in memory care. We enjoy an afternoon cocktail visiting with other residents every evening. And the food, AMAZING!! Chef Mike Foster is incredible!! The courtyards in each area are beautiful!! Its just comfortable and comforting knowing our family is in such great care. Its so comfortable that in the many sitting areas I kick off my shoes and relax!! Go see for yourself!! You wont be disappointed!!

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Verandah Retirement Living in Lake Charles:

My family and I cant say enough regarding the wonderful care our father is currently receiving. He lives in Memory Care at the Verandah and we are continually being updated on his status during this Pandemic. The caregivers work well with our sitter to provide every opportunity for us to FaceTime or even see him through the fence in their beautiful outdoor area. There are so many people working together to make this unfortunate time the best it can possibly be: nurse aids, nurses, activity director, kitchen staff, etc. I am most amazed that they have had NO cases in their facility. This shows the kind of precautions that are being taken for their residents. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

What residents and loved ones have to say about Avanti Senior living at Covington:

If you’re looking for an assisted living community with a memory care program, I would highly recommend Avanti Senior Living. My mother has been living there for a few months and we are so thankful that we found Avanti. It was getting harder and harder for her to take care of herself, so we knew we had to intervene. Avanti is a blessing!

The Gardens Lake Charles LA

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Gardens Assisted Living:

I have a parent who has been in the Rehab Center for a month now since his knee replacement surgery. This rehab center is excellent. We had a meeting with department heads shortly after my Dad arrived. Everyone was very professional and helpful. The Director of Nursing met with us to explain what we could expect and address any concerns. My Dad likes it so much and said that everyone is so friendly that he wants to stay there. I was in his room one day and an aide came by to check on him and brought him some ice cream. There were smiles all around. I would recommend this center to everyone. It is a great team.
