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. Construction was completed in 2013. Every element of this expansion is designed to preserve the unique beauty of Poydras Home’s campus.
Three-story Oak House, includes 22 traditional assisted living suites, 11 secure memory care assisted living suites, a fitness center and an art studio. Each beautifully appointed traditional assisted living apartment features a kitchenette with granite countertops and ample cabinetry, a secure medicine storage space, a secure coat closet, a generously-sized, walk-in clothing closet, a spacious handicapped-accessible bath, and windows fitted with handsome wooden plantation shutters, overlooking our community’s beautifully landscaped garden spaces. Our assisted living residents are encouraged to personally decorate their space with a choice of designer paint colors, their own furnishings and favorite things to transform the thoughtfully designed space into their own home. The sense of community fostered in Oak House Assisted Living is particularly strong as our caring staff pays special attention to the social, cultural, recreational and spiritual needs of each resident.
Our expansion also included renovations and upgrades to the Historic House, including its 1960s nursing care wing. New dining spaces capture the flavor of popular New Orleans restaurants both in design and 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.
