What to Consider About Assisted Living in East Baton Rouge Parish

East Baton Rouge Parish contains the state capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge, as well as the cities of Zachary, Central and Baker, making it a regional hub for culture and activities that appeal to active seniors. The parish is home to over 446,000 residents, and 13.7 percent of those are age 65 and older.

This sizable senior population is served by 19 assisted living communities, which are known as Adult Residential Care Providers (ARCPs) in the state of Louisiana. The Louisiana Department of Health regulates ARCPs and categorizes them into four types based on the style of accommodations, number of residents served and how much care those residents need.
