What to Consider About Assisted Living in Livingston Parish

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. Called Adult Residential Care Providers (ARCPs), these facilities are divided into four levels based on the type of care, number of residents and type of accommodations.
