What to Consider About Assisted Living in Denham Springs
Denham Springs, in Livingston Parish, has waterways, golf and museums for seniors to explore. The small town of under 10,000 residents has a substantial senior population of just over 17 percent. There are three assisted living communities within its borders and another 16 facilities are located in nearby towns and cities, including Baton Rouge, the state's capitol. In Louisiana, the state Department of Health and Human Services licenses ALFs and other residential adult care programs. Programs are certified at four different levels, with ALFs being level 3. At minimum in the state, licensed assisted living facilities must provide certain care services and provide individuals with at least one-room apartments with a kitchenette and a private bathroom.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Denham Springs
- Louisiana is called the Sportsman's Paradise in part because warm weather makes it possible to be outdoors almost year-round, making Denham Springs a great retirement location for those who enjoy spending time outside.
- Denham Springs boasts a cost of living that's 7 percent below the national average — and 3 percent lower than the nearby state capitol of Baton Rouge — making it an affordable alternative for seniors. Housing, transportation and utility costs are all especially low.
- The Denham Springs area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Sage Specialty Hospital and Oschner Health Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. The state capitol is only minutes away via Interstate 10, so residents can also access numerous medical centers in Baton Rouge.
Crime rates in Denham Springs are much higher than the national average and even higher than rates in Baton Rouge. There are more than 18 crimes per day per 100,000 people in the city, and while crime has decreased in recent years, it may still be a concern for assisted living residents.
- While Louisiana does have an income tax, it doesn't tax income that comes from certain government benefits such as Social Security, making it a tax-friendly state for retirees.
- Denham Springs has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Livingston Council on Aging, an organization that provides meals and other services to seniors throughout the parish, as well as three senior centers.
