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 Truly

We believe a broad range of amenities and services are important and we recognize and respect everyone’s right to privacy. We remain open to the personal preferences of each resident and we work to provide a plan that best suits each person’s needs.

    Thank you so much for the help and guidance getting my dad settled! I am so thankful for the nursing staff at Francois Bend!

    The staff has gone above our greatest expectations to care for our Poppie. Even during COVID-19 challenges, we moved my FIL into the community, and he has adapted wonderfully thanks to the staff. Our family has complete peace knowing he is in such a great place.

    We moved mom in on the day they opened…It’s a beautiful assisted living facility filled with loving and caring employees who love her like we do. They take excellent care of our mom. We are there for a lot of the activities which she loves to participate in. We have come to know a lot of the residents and their families. I highly recommend Francois Bend and Around the Bend for your loved ones.
