We identified a shortage of quality options for seniors who can no longer safely live at home but who do not need or prefer more institutional settings such as nursing homes and large assisted living facilities
New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
Peristyle Residences announced this week that it was celebrating its one-year anniversary as Louisiana and Mississippi’s most luxurious yet affordable senior care provider.
Peristyle currently operates homes for assisted living in New Orleans, Metairie, Gretna, and Hattiesburg. In the year to come, says co-founder Sean Arrillaga, the company plans to bring its unique model to even more communities by renovating two to four new homes and licensing them for assisted living. As Peristyle grows, however, its mission will remain the same: to provide residents with the care they need in a comfortable, personal, and secure setting.
“Jason Hemel and I founded Peristyle Residences after working in nursing homes and assisted living facilities for years. We identified a shortage of quality options for seniors who can no longer safely live at home but who do not need or prefer more institutional settings such as nursing homes and large assisted living facilities,” said Arrillaga. “It seemed like people went straight from homes to institutional settings. We knew there had to be a better solution.”
Peristyle Residences provides twenty-four-hour care and supervision to seniors in single-family homes, which means that instead of living in a large senior living facility, seniors from New Orleans, Metairie, Gretna, and Hattiesburg have the opportunity to stay within their community—benefiting both the seniors themselves and their loved ones, who can stop by to see them anytime rather than having to drive across town to visit.
Every Peristyle residence provides care and supervision to a small community of six to eight seniors in mostly private rooms. Peristyle offers a simplified, all-inclusive, and affordable fee schedule. “We’re far less expensive than most senior living options which often offer services in an a la carte format,” said Arrillaga.
When it comes to senior care in New Orleans, Metairie, and the other communities it serves, Peristyle Residences offer the newest, most luxurious homes and is an assisted living provider that simultaneously offers its residents a high level of privacy and the attention they require. Seniors’ adult children are often the ones who have to make the decision about where their parents will live once they’re no longer able to take care of themselves; Peristyle’s unique model, Arrillaga said, ensures that they won’t have to worry that their parents are being neglected or lost in the crowd.
“We strive every day to make sure that we’re providing people’s loved ones with a place where they feel comfortable and happy, where they feel like they’re part of a community,” said Arrillaga. “Like our motto says, others are homelike—we are HOME.”
