For Consumers: What is Assisted Living?

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted Living is a combination of housing, personalized supportive services and health care designed to respond to individual needs of those who require help with activities of daily living. Residences can be very different in size, appearance and the types of services offered. Each unit must have a room with a cooking device/microwave, refrigerator and private bathroom.

How is Assisted Living Regulated? 

Assisted Living is regulated by the Louisiana Department of Health & Hospitals under the "Adult Residential Care" licensure classification, which includes personal care homes, shelter care homes, and assisted living communities (with individual apartments/units for residents). Assisted Living residences typically offer different levels of care at different costs. Residents may have to move to a higher level of care if the assisted living residence can permanently no longer meet their needs. Residents and/or families pay for services. No financial assistance is available in Louisiana at this time.
