Oak House Assisted Living
With the opening of our new Assisted Living care area known as Oak House, Poydras Home is even more beautiful. The new and enhanced facilities allow the community to serve a larger resident population while enhancing the current residents’ experience. Ground was broken for this exciting project in April 2012, and construction was completed in the summer of 2013. Every element of the expansion is designed to preserve the unique beauty of the Poydras Home campus.
Oak House, is a three-story addition that adds 22 assisted living and 11 memory care assisted living suites. Oak House is home to our innovative, Montessori-inspired Memory Support Program called Seasons. Connected to the current Historic House, the new structure honors the style of that 1857 landmark.
The expansion includes renovations and upgrades to the Historic House, including its 1960s nursing care wing. New dining spaces capture the flavor of some popular New Orleans restaurants both in their design and their menus. To the rear of the campus, a new, state-of-the-art wellness and therapy center serving all residents offers general fitness programs and specialized physical, occupational and speech therapy programs.
