New Orleans is a city of well-known festivities enjoyed by all. Poydras Home’s annual calendar of events reflects some of the great celebrations of this city, to which we also add some of our own.

Poydras Home is celebrating our 200th Birthday!

Poydras Home has reached a rare, historical milestone as we enter into 2017 which marks our 200th birthday. Please plan to join in our year-long celebration by saving the date for these upcoming Bicentennial Special Events:

Learn…
You are invited to “Hopeful Aging” as presented by President and Co-Founder of Hearthstone Alzheimer Care, Ltd., Dr. John Zeisel. Attend this free-of-charge presentation at Poydras Home on Tuesday evening March 28th and learn about Hopeful Aging as Dr. Zeisel leads us on a journey through the aging brain while exploring the possibilities for learning and connection for persons living with memory loss. This dynamic presentation, previously aired on PBS nationwide, will communicate a hopeful message about memory and aging. Dr. Zeisel will also equip attendees with new strategies that can help caregivers provide meaningful, engaging experiences to those living with memory challenges. Hopeful Aging examines brain health and vitality, memory systems and learning with a focus on Hearthstone’s innovative Learning for Life ™ program.
