Assisted Living Rules and Regulations in Louisiana
State regulatory agencies can offer great insight when it comes to finding quality assisted living for yourself or a loved one. Many states offer current and accurate information to help consumers find trusted senior care. However, states differ in the information they make available to consumers.

Public Records and License Status
Louisiana ranks among the lowest 25% of states when it comes to accessibility and transparency of assisted living records. Because records concerning inspections, violations and complaints are not available online consumers may have a more difficult time finding care they know they can trust.
To find general information about assisted living communities, visit the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals. You may also locate a long-term-care ombudsmen at www.eldercare.gov or make a request through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
Violations and Resident Protection
Louisiana does provide an updated list of assisted living communities online but that list is not searchable. They do not post information concerning violations, inspections, complaints, survey results or information regarding special licensing but do show capacity and contact information.
Louisiana performs inspections every 12 months and can fine facilities for violations.
