Assisted Living and Nursing Care at Poydras Home

Within the overall Poydras Home community, our original building houses nursing care services. This one-story building has 54 private bedrooms, several activity areas and two separate dining rooms. Oak House, a three story addition situated at the front of our campus, 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 walk-in clothing closet, a spacious handicapped-accessible shower, and windows fitted with 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 color, their own furnishings and favorite things.

At the heart of assisted living and nursing care at Poydras Home are care programs that far exceed industry standards. While care is provided in a homelike atmosphere, it is also thoroughly professional and reflective of the latest and most effective protocols and procedures. In addition to the physical care of residents in assisted living or nursing care, the staff pays special attention to the social, cultural, recreational and spiritual needs of each resident.
