    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Jefferson Parish

    Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, was named for Thomas Jefferson in 1825 in celebration of the Louisiana Purchase. In an area that was once farmland, Jefferson Parish became the first suburb of New Orleans. Seniors living in this area are a short distance from big city amenities and can choose from 21 Assisted Living Facilities. In Louisiana, ALFs are defined as facilities that provide basic care and assistance with daily living activities to two or more seniors. ALFs in this state are referred to as Adult Residential Care Facilities and are regulated by the Louisiana Department of Health.
