What to Consider About Assisted Living in Saint Tammany Parish

In Saint Tammany Parish, as throughout the state, assisted living communities are regulated by the Louisiana Department of Health. They are called Adult Residential Care Providers (ARCPs) and are classified into four categories based on the level of care residents require and the type of accommodations provided by the facility.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Saint Tammany Parish
