Find Jewish Senior Living in Louisiana

Search 132 Jewish senior living options in Louisiana

Louisiana features more than 2 dozen distinct Jewish communities. At the same time, it may be difficult to locate Jewish assisted living in this state. This remarkable gap in care for Jews will make finding a suitable assisted living community more challenging but the good news is, there are lots of alternative ways to get the care seniors need while still living a spiritual life in the Jewish faith. Seniors will just need to look at assisted living centers that are set in the same communities as any of the many synagogues that dot the state.

One of the best may be to find an assisted living center within each reach of a Jewish community and their synagogue. There are many like The Blake at Colonial Club that is highly rated and within easy reach of two synagogues. Seniors may even find that other seniors with a similar strategy have already found and settled into this assisted living center.

Amber Terrace in Baton Rouge is another good example of a well-regarded assisted living center, in easy reach of a local Jewish community. Again, it would not be surprising to find a community of other Jewish seniors who have already settled in here.

Cost of Jewish Assisted Living in Louisiana

Jewish 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.

Amenities in Jewish Assisted Living Communities in Louisiana

When there are no specifically Jewish assisted living facilities to settle into, the next best things is to fall back on Jewish communities and the assisted living centers that are close by. What happens quite often is that these homes attract a large enough community for seniors searching for their Jewish faith that the center will add amenities and reach out to the local Jewish community to meets these needs. It may not be as good as finding a proper Jewish assisted living center, but it could still be a really good option.

Jewish Retirement Communities in Louisiana - Religious Amenities

Check with each assisted living community and ask a couple of key questions. First, do they know how many seniors they have in residence that are Jewish, and are they already connected to the local Jewish community and their synagogue. If the answer is yes, seniors are likely to fit right in.

Do they have a relationship with a local Rabbi? Even an assisted living center that isn’t Jewish can reach out and invite a local Rabbi to attend to their faithful community. Again, this may not be optimal since there will be gaps in spiritual care, but it is a viable alternative in the absence of anything better.

Kosher dinging will also be a challenge. In a Jewish assisted living facility, seniors would rightfully expect to find a kosher kitchen and a culinary team that is experience in preparing kosher meals. In an ordinary assisted living facility this isn’t likely to be available. So, seniors will have to reach out to the local Jewish community for help or they’ll have to prepare their own meals in order to stay true to their faith.
