What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ouachita Parish

The relaxed vibe and abundance of natural beauty of Ouachita Parish in north Louisiana makes it a great place for active seniors who love the outdoors.  About 14.3 percent of the almost 156,000 residents in Ouachita Parish are over age 65, and the area has five assisted living communities to support area seniors who need assistance with everyday activities and medication management.

As throughout all of Louisiana, assisted living facilities in Ouachita Parish are called Adult Residential Care Providers (ARCPs). These facilities are licensed by the Louisiana Department of Health and categorized into four levels based on the resident population of the facility, types of accommodations and programs offered.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ouachita Parish

  • Ouachita Parish is 12.1 percent cheaper than the U.S. average when it comes to overall cost of living, but health and transportation are slightly above the national average, which may be of concern to seniors in assisted living facilities in the area.
  • Air quality in Ouachita Parish is great, and the American Lung Association gave the region an A grade for both ozone levels and 24-hour particle pollution. Seniors with respiratory concerns can typically enjoy outdoor activities in Ouachita Parish without having to worry about excess pollution.
  • As Louisiana citizens, Ouachita Parish residents can take advantage of some of the tax breaks the state offers. Louisiana doesn't tax social security, public pensions, some private pensions and some retirement income, leaving seniors with more money in their pockets.
  • Ouachita Parish has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Ouachita Council on Aging, an organization that provides advocacy, information, legal aid and wellness activities, as well as multiple senior centers, such as the West Ouachita Senior Center.
  • Ouachita Parish is home to world-class medical facilities, including Glenwood Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Individual cities in Ouachita Parish operate their own public transit systems, including the Monroe Transit System and West Ouachita Public Transit System, which may offer specific discount to seniors living in the area.
