Poydras Home: Louisiana's first Green House® Project community

Poydras Home is synonymous with the best service and care, and we owe much of that success to our dedication to continually learning and improving our practices to best serve our residents. We are proud to be elevating that tradition of care to an even higher level with The Green House® Project model. With the completion of the Poydras Home Reimagined expansion in 2022, we will become Louisiana’s first community to offer this care approach. The Green House Project model represents the highest quality of life for residents, focusing on the fundamental principle that each resident should be the central decision maker in his or her daily life.

One of the many benefits of this evolution is the smaller number of residents living within each home. Additionally, each home has a team of dedicated Care Partners who know every senior’s health needs and preferences and are highly trained to assist with all manner of tasks, helping to make each day meaningful and bright.

These new homes will feature open floor plans with spacious living rooms, comfortable seating and fireplaces, dining rooms and state-of-the-art kitchens where residents can participate in meal preparation, private bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, and balconies and patios with beautiful garden views.

The Green House Project’s close-knit, smaller setups within the larger community have resulted in less COVID exposure and infection in facilities across the nation. Though we had already chosen to implement this approach, data further confirmed that it is by far the best model operating today. We embrace the opportunity to add a new layer of safety for our residents as we continue to prioritize their health and happiness above all else.
