    Houma is the largest city in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana, with over 33,000 residents governed by the Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government. There are three assisted living facilities to choose from in Houma, all of which offer the kind of personal care that aging adults sometimes need, including assistance with the activities of daily living, including bathing, dressing and grooming. The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, Health Standards Section licenses all assisted living facilities in the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Houma

    • Weather in Houma is typically hot and humid, as one might expect from a town located on the bayou. The weather on the nearby Gulf of Mexico affects Houma's temperatures significantly, bringing rain throughout the year. Temperatures cool down during the winter without becoming cold.

    • Houma's cost of living sits 11.1 percent below the national average, allowing those on a fixed income to stretch their dollars further.

    • The Houma area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Terrebonne General Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Houma is the heartland of Cajun culture and cuisine, with thousands flocking to the area to celebrate Mardi Gras every year. Houma's downtown is on the National Register of Historic Places, and local walking tours take visitors to the various museums and cultural centers lining the streets. The Voice of the Wetlands Music Festival each fall presents not only Louisiana musicians but also local art, food and crafts.

    • Because of Houma's relatively isolated location on the bayou, its public transportation system, Good Earth Transit, remains primarily local, carrying residents to Thibodaux and small bayou towns.

    • Houma has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Terrebonne Council on Aging, an organization that provides recreation, transportation and wellness programs to seniors as well as five senior centers, five senior lunch sites and an activity center.
