Louisiana Assisted Living

Louisiana assisted living homes feature some great luxuries you will not find in other parts of the country. In addition to being treated to fresh seafood and a rich history not present in other parts of the nation, many Louisiana assisted living centers are also pet friendly and welcome seniors with dogs or cats. Although each senior living community has its own pet policies, those that consider themselves pet friendly offer convenient amenities for elderly pet owners that include pet grooming services, veterinary clinics located nearby as well as dog runs and walking trails where senior dog owners can exercise their pets. Many retirement communities in Louisiana recognize that owning a pet not only helps seniors to feel less lonely but also dogs and cats help their owners to stay more active. Elderly people who own a dog, for example, spend a lot more time walking outdoors which benefits their overall health and general wellbeing. 

Pet Friendly Assisted Living in Louisiana - General Amenities

Louisiana is a fantastic place to retire for seniors because of relatively low housing costs and plenty of added bonuses. Assisted living centers in Louisiana provide a number of conveniences to help make the next chapter in a senior citizen’s life more enjoyable.

Senior living communities help to take a lot of the daily workload off senior residents by preparing and serving their meals, handling laundry chores, taking on cleaning duties, and even providing transportation outside the complex.

What separates pet-friendly assisted living facilities from standard homes for the elderly is the sense of community. People that live here share common interests and are at the same point in their life.

It is a prime opportunity in your life to make new friends, participate in a ton of scheduled activities and programs, and even test your brain by learning new things.

Pet Friendly Amenities in Louisiana Assisted Living Facilities

Pets like to get challenges too. In the past, it was simply believed that a cat or dog was happy getting food, water, and shelter. While that is important your pet also deserves to get treated too.

Thankfully pet amenities at assisted living homes are improving. In addition to most providing a source for outdoor entertainment and exercise, indoor amenities are also offered. Some of the top pet friendly assisted living centers in Louisiana even provide a pet spa or grooming center. 

Pet sitting and walking services are potentially offered. It is a really great service as it helps elderly members that really get a lot of satisfaction and happiness from having pets, yet are physically unable to exercise with them much, if at all.

And if you are away for a day, or several days, a pet sitting service can allow you to keep your pet at your residence. The service can check up on them periodically and make sure they are well taken care of.

Assisted Living with Pets in Louisiana - Different Types of Pet Policies

What can you expect for the terms and conditions at an assisted living center that is pet friendly? It really all depends on the facility. First, you need to inquire about what types of animals are allowed. While dogs make terrific companions not every assisted living home allows them. In fact, there are far less assisted living homes that currently allow dogs compared to ones that do not.

Secondly, after you know if the senior living facility only allows cats, or dogs and cats - you should check about numbers and other guidelines. Residents in pet friendly retirement villages may be restricted to only one pet. Dog owners may only be allowed smaller dogs, and certain types of breeds.

Pet friendly assisted living homes usually require an initial deposit (refundable or non-refundable), along with a potential extra charge added each month to rent. These costs cover cleaning and damage that a pet may inflict in a room, or around the complex.
