Take a look at all of the varied entertainment, wellness, educational and cultural offering our residents will enjoy this month here!
In 2022, Poydras Home introduced a new annual, 3-part speaker series. Poydras Home Conversations will host guest lecturers each spring, summer, and fall, representing a wide range of topics.
Poydras Home hosted the third installment of our community outreach series of “Poydras Home Conversations” on the evening of Thursday, October 27. We welcomed Susan Ryan, Senior Director of The Green House Project, who unveiled Poydras Home’s new care model to come in our newly renovated campus.
Poydras Home hosted the second installment of our community outreach series of “Poydras Home Conversations” on Thursday evening August 18 from 5:30 until 7:00 p.m. We welcomed Community Outreach Coordinator / Public Information Officer Shane Jones of the Louisiana Eastern District US Attorney’s Office and his associate, Assistant US Attorney Edward Rivera to share tips for seniors to avoid being the targets of scams. This free educational event was beneficial to all in attendance.
We launched the series with our inaugural speaker, Debbie Pearson, RN on April 14. Based on the insights from her best-seller “Age Your Way: Create a Unique Legacy”, Nurse Pearson offered a practical introduction to life planning that extends patients’ voices when they can no longer speak for themselves. Attendees received a complimentary copy of her book and its accompanying workbook, “The Blueprint to Age Your Way: Gather Your information. Document your wishes. Avoid the unthinkable.” while learning about how to spark meaningful conversation with your loved ones to ensure their wishes are honored.
