Poydras Home celebrated our 200th birthday in 2017!
Poydras Home has reached a rare historical milestone as 2017 marked our 200th birthday! We enjoyed a year-long celebration of Bicentennial Special Events:
Learn…President and Co-Founder of Hearthstone Alzheimer Care, Ltd. Dr. John Zeisel presented “Hopeful Aging” at Poydras Home on March 28th. Dr. Zeisel led 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, communicated a hopeful message about memory and aging. Attendees were equipped with new strategies to help caregivers provide meaningful, engaging experiences to those living with memory challenges. “Hopeful Aging” examined brain health and vitality, memory systems and learning with a focus on Hearthstone’s innovative Learning for Life ™ program.
Listen…Poydras Home hosted a complimentary alfresco concert on our front lawn on the evening of Tuesday, May 9th, made possible by a generous sponsorship by Fidelity Bank. We celebrated our Bicentennial with a Big Brass Birthday Bash as the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra’s brass ensemble highlighted how brass instruments have been used throughout history in and out of orchestras. Attendees dined on complimentary red beans and rice or brought in a picnic. This selection of popular, contemporary and American music in an outdoor setting proved perfect for families, friends and neighbors alike!
