    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Livingston Parish

    Livingston Parish offers a relaxed southeast Louisiana lifestyle with easy access to the big-city amenities of  Baton Rouge and New Orleans, making it ideal for seniors who enjoy both cultural activities and watching local wildlife. About 12.8 percent of the population in Livingston Parish is age 65 or older, and the parish has about 138,000 residents. Four assisted living facilities in the parish cater to this sizable population of seniors.

    In Livingston Parish, as throughout Louisiana, assisted living communities are regulated by the Louisiana Department of Health.
