What is Francois Bend?

Francois Bend is a beautiful, amenity-rich, 7.5 acre senior living campus. The campus is located in the heart of Gonzales, the largest town in Ascension Parish, one of the fastest growing parishes in the state. Located only 2.5 miles off of I-10, the campus is centrally located to acute care and rehabilitation hospitals, physician offices, churches, law enforcement, city government offices.

Francois Bend offers assistance to seniors who want to maintain independence but need extra support. All apartments are licensed for assisted living so residents can remain in the same apartment when more assistance is required. There are several levels of assistance with activities of daily living plus dedicated memory care.

The Francois Bend team believes that by offering 24 hour nursing, in-house physical therapy and an in-house medication program, we are addressing the void that can exist between hospital-level care and nursing homes. We remain open to the personal preferences and needs of each resident and strive to provide a plan that best suits each person.

Francois Bend is a blend of comfort, safety and maintenance-free living. The campus is just a short drive from major healthcare facilities, law enforcement agencies, shopping, schools and cultural events. Francois Bend offers an abundance of amenities, including a 9,000 square foot social pavilion that houses a theatre room, simulated golfing, exercise/gym, chapel and activities/game room. There is also a landscaped outdoor activity area that you and your family can enjoy. Francois Bend is a place where you and your loved one can thrive physically, mentally and socially.
