Our Services…

“Continuing Care Retirement Community” is one way we describe Poydras Home. You will also hear reference to a “continuum of care.” Both are shorthand for a range of services that can cover the diverse needs of residents as changes occur in their lives. For many, the starting point for living at Poydras is independent living. Our PHASE Senior Day Program extends the continuum of care to those who need special services only during daytime hours.
