    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Saint Tammany Parish

    Saint Tammany Parish is located on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, providing convenient access to natural beauty and a vibrant local culture that active seniors can enjoy. About 16 percent of the over 256,000 residents of the parish are age 65 and older, and there are 13 assisted living facilities in the area to accommodate that population.

    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

    • The weather in Saint Tammany Parish is semi-tropical, with warm, humid summers and mild winters. Occasional hurricanes and large thunderstorms strike the area, so families considering assisted living communities should ask about how the facilities handle weather emergencies and potential evacuation plans.
