Does your parent or elderly loved one have difficulty performing household tasks, taking care of themselves, preparing meals, or other activities of daily living? Perhaps getting in and out of their favorite rocking chair has become increasingly challenging? At Audubon Care Homes, we take pride in providing residential assisted living services to seniors.

Covid Best Practices
Covid-19 is a virus that invades the upper respiratory system, which is especially dangerous for seniors and people with comorbidity and weakened immune systems. We take Covid safety protocols seriously at Audubon Care Homes. Installed in our homes is an Air Scrubber by Active Pure – a state-of-the-art air quality system proven to destroy 99% of all surface contaminants and specifically the virus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes Covid-19. We follow Louisiana Department of Health and CDC guidelines on masks, social isolation, etc.
Home Cooked Meals
At Audubon Care Homes, we are aware of the amount of unhealthy food our society consumes. That’s why we are dedicated to the health of our residents by providing delicious home-cooked meals. Not only is it a healthier option but eating together is the epitome of a people’s love for each other. We can accommodate any diet restriction your elderly loved one may have. We also celebrate birthdays and holidays by cooking and baking with our residents.
We Welcome Family Visits
We welcome you to come visit your elderly loved one at any time. We understand that each family has a different way of spending time together. That’s why there is plenty of space for privacy in the bedrooms, common areas, and covered patio. You can play games together, lounge around and watch television, or even take a walk in the neighborhood. We also welcome families to join us on the holidays and participate in the festivities.
Residential Care Is Better For Certain People
Large assisted living communities play a vital and irreplaceable role in senior care. However, not all people do well transitioning from their home to a community environment. Some individuals do better with a more familiar home-like setting. This is where residential assisted living has proven to be effective. By having a small, intimate setting, our residents feel comfortable while allowing our staff to provide more personalized care. Furthermore, our residential care homes have the highest caregiver-to-resident ratio in the nation – we have one caregiver for every three residents. Here is a wonderful article on helping seniors adjust to residential assisted living.

How To Pay For Assisted Living?
There are quite a few ways to pay for assisted living, depending on your financial situation, state of residency, and military status. At Audubon Care Homes, we accept the following forms of payment:
Private pay refers to payment from personal finances and resources absent of outside help from third-party assistance. Most of our residents pay with personal funds.
If your elderly loved one is a veteran or a spouse of a veteran, then they might qualify for financial assistance from Veteran Affairs (VA). It is worth checking with the VA to see if you are eligible.
Long-Term Care Insurance
You are in luck for those who planned ahead because we accept long-term care insurance as a form of payment. Long-term care insurance is purchased through private insurance companies, so double-check with your insurance provider to see this is included in your plan.
