    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lafayette Parish

    Located in the southwestern part of Louisiana, Lafayette Parish is considered the heart of Cajun country, which makes it ideal for active seniors who love zydeco music, outdoor festivals and a rich, French-inspired culture. The parish is home to over 242,000 people, and about 12.6 percent of that population is over the age of 65.

    In Lafayette Parish, assisted living communities are known as Adult Residential Care Providers (ARCPs) and are regulated by the Louisiana Department of Health. ARCPs are grouped into four categories, which are determined by the number of residents, type of care and kinds of accommodations provided. There are nine assisted living facilities in Lafayette Parish to cater to seniors in the region.

    • Lafayette Parish has a humid subtropical climate, which produces hot, damp summer weather and mild winters. ARCPs in the region should have a plan to keep residents protected from extreme heat.

    • Lafayette Parish is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lafayette General Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

The rate for violent crime is 51.9 on a 100-point scale, compared to a rate of 31.1 for the average across the U.S. Non-violent crime occurs at a rate of 48.9, compared to 38.1 for the U.S. average.
