New Orleans (LA) Senior Living Communities

The Big Easy may be the most unique city in the country. It’s a mix of cultures—European, Caribbean, and African—cuisines, and history. Before you start your search for New Orleans senior living options, see what this city on the Mississippi has to offer.

In New Orleans, randomness is a way of life. You'll be walking in a neighborhood and all of a sudden, be caught up in an impromptu parade with brass and drums and costumed marchers. What’s the occasion? There probably isn’t one. That's just laissez les bon temps rouler..."let the good times roll. 

Somewhere in the city, there’s always an organized celebration going on. Perhaps the most famous is Mardi Gras and its parades, festivals, and masked balls. Mark Twain said, “I think that I may say that an American has not seen the United States until he has seen Mardi-Gras in New Orleans.” Then there’s Jazz Fest, Voodoo Fest, Oktoberfest, Swamp Fest, Satchmo Summerfest, Vieux to Do, Treme Creole Gumbo Festival and many more.

Every neighborhood is steeped in history whether it’s the Marigny, the Garden District, Algiers, Treme or the famous French Quarter. Then there are museums such as the National World War II Museum, The Louisiana State Mardi Gras Museum, Pharmacy Museum, and Tulane Museum of Natural History. Uptown’s Audubon Park is not only a natural oasis—thousands of birds, huge draping live oaks, lakes—it’s a piece of NOLA’s past. The first inhabitants were Indians. In colonial times, a plantation sat on the land. During the Civil War, both sides used it as a staging area. It was site of a World’s Fair in 1884.

The overall cost of living is 3% below the national average. A one-bedroom in an assisted living facility averages $3,620, according to a Genworth Financial survey on long-term care. A private room in a nursing home averages $170 a day, while a semi-private room averages $147.
