What to consider about assisted living in New Orleans

When searching for an assisted living facility in New Orleans, you should consider your or your loved one’s care needs, lifestyle preferences and budget. Factors to think about when selecting a community in New Orleans include:

  • Licensing and regulation: The Louisiana Department of Health is responsible for regulating assisted living facilities in Louisiana. The state refers to these facilities as “adult residential care providers.” They must be licensed and follow all state laws.
  • Proximity to health care providers: It’s important that an assisted living facility is close to a hospital in case of an emergency. It should also be near your or your loved one’s health care provider. Leading hospitals in New Orleans include Tulane Medical Center and Ochsner Medical Center.
  • Your budget: The cost to live at an assisted living community in New Orleans varies depending on the facility, the level of care and other variables. Have an idea of your budget before you begin touring facilities. Remember that Louisiana is tax-friendly for retirees.
  • Safety measures: According to NeighborhoodScout at the time of publishing, New Orleans is safer than only 2% of U.S cities. Violent crime and property crime rates are above national medians. Ask each facility about what steps it takes to ensure the security of residents.
  • Plans for weather events: Residents in New Orleans experience warm weather throughout the year, but they also have to be prepared for hurricane season, which lasts from June through November. Ask each facility about its procedures for weather-related emergencies.

How much does assisted living cost in New Orleans?

On average, assisted living facilities in New Orleans cost between $1,200 and $5,700 per month. The exact cost depends on the specific community, the level of care you or your loved one needs, the living space you choose and whether you benefit from any discounts or promotions.

If the monthly price of assisted living seems overwhelming, talk to a facility representative. Many communities offer payment plans and discounts, and some can help you locate financial assistance programs. In Louisiana, Medicaid may cover assisted living costs if you qualify.
