Exceptional, Dignified, Supportive, Specialized

Leaders in Memory Care

Poydras Home’s ongoing dedication to exceptional support for those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias makes us a leader in memory care and quality of life enhancement. Assisted Living residents with Alzheimer’s and other memory support needs live in harmonious, family-style, secure spaces known as Seasons and Egret. Each includes private accommodations with a bedroom and en suite bathroom, and garden views. Residents enjoy community living and dining spaces with home-cooked meals served restaurant style from an open concept kitchen, access to a secure garden with patio and walking paths, and a higher caregiver-to-resident ratio. Each Memory Support resident is treated with unending compassion and given the dignity and respect they deserve.

Poydras Home also offers Memory Care Respite 30-day stays.

Grant makes partnership possible

Joining our Seasons at Oak House Assisted Living memory care residents with local grade school children and the New Orleans SPCA

Made possible through an Innovation Grant from the I’m Still Here Foundation, Generation 2 Generation Baking pairs our Seasons at Oak House Assisted Living memory care residents with 2nd grade students from The Willow School (formerly Lusher) at the New Orleans SPCA! These intergenerational groups work together to bake homemade dog treats for the shelter animals. While the treats bake, everyone enjoys an outdoor visit with a dog available for adoption.

In preparation for each visit, the school children discuss the aging process with their teachers and learn about dementia. Our residents are charmed and delighted by both the children and the animals. They all recognize the positive impact their collaboration has on animals in need and on our community.
