There are very few specifically Christian, assisted living facilities available in Louisiana. Take Summerfield Senior Living as an example. They have four centers for senior living, each with a very nicely appointed chapel, and religious services marked on their calendar of activities, but nothing in how they describe themselves say anything about the Christian faith. In Louisiana, this seems to be the rule rather than the exception.

Cost of Christian Assisted Living in Louisiana

Christian assisted living facilities in Louisiana is first-off, relatively new. After Hurricane Katrina, many of the assisted living centers need to either be rebuilt or significantly repaired and upgraded. Still, the average monthly rate in these assisted living centers remains low compared to the national average of $4,000, by about $350 per month. This is true throughout most of the state, with Hammond, LA, just tipping the price scale at $3,000 per month. New Orleans drives the state’s average up significantly, with an average monthly rate of $4,700, but even this isn’t terribly out of line for those seniors that love the NOLA vibe.

In some ways, Christian have an easier time keeping the faith, without having a formal church setting to support them. Since Christian are focused on developing a personal relationship with God, they can, together with their bible, find their own path if necessary. But even though most assisted living facilities in Louisiana aren’t specifically Christian, they do have services and a relationship with pastors and guest preachers, so seniors won’t feel left out in the cold. They will still have guidance they can call on to help them find and stay on the right path to God.

Christian Retirement Communities in Louisiana - Religious Amenities

In a Christian assisted living facility, seniors would expect to find a full-time pastor on the care team so spiritual care would be given equally attention with physical care. In the assisted living centers in Louisiana, they are more likely to be chaplains, that are focused on helping seniors, regardless of their faithful inclinations. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it may mean that seniors will need to play a more independent role as a guide on their faithful journey.

The chapel is still an important amenity, even in assisted living centers where the Christian faith isn’t the sole focus. These are centers of faith, reflection and prayer. They are still a respite from the hustle and bustle of life, where the faithful can find focus as they pray to their loving God. They may just have to share this chapel with others that will believe in a different path to God, and have different ideas about how their faithful journey will unfold, and that could be a good thing. Being a true Christian is being accepting of others, and what better way to live that than to share a chapel.

The care teams in the assisted living facilities are a key amenity, and it would be best for faithful seniors, to have other that share their faith, provide this care. There is something about the very personal nature of this care that is made more comforting when the tenants of compassion, love and patience guide the care teams in their efforts. In a Christian assisted living facility, this would be a given. In assisted living centers that aren’t as focused, it is something seniors will have to explore. Get to know the staff and talk to some of the residents to gauge the extent to which these care teams live their faith, in their efforts to serve their residents. They could be a critically helpful, even if the home isn’t a dedicated Christian assisted living facility.

Finally, and again, this may be something seniors will have to play a leading role in developing, are the activities that mark the days in these centers. Many of these assisted living centers in Louisiana offer activities like bible studies and prayer meeting as part of their regular schedules. They will all be supportive of seniors that want to form groups that participate in these activities and help create others that can meet their spiritual needs. Again, seniors may have to drive these activities but, in some ways, this may actually help strengthen their faith in God.

They offer a restaurant dining experience, with great meals, in a great setting, where menus offering something for every taste.
