About Us

Our Purpose, Our Passion

To offer seniors the comfort of home, comprehensive loving care and dedication to enriching their lives.

Why Francois Bend?

Francois Bend Senior Living is one of the finest senior living communities in the South.  It is over 85,000 square feet situated on 7 ½ acres in the heart of Gonzales.

The project was the vision of developers who left the hospital business to pursue senior living.  The project kicked off in 2016 with panning and construction initiating in 2017. DHH licensing was obtained at completion, and the 108 unit community opened in September of 2018.

This campus is not just for our residents; it is for the people in this community to enjoy as well. We host events throughout the month including lunch ‘n learns, live music and art & crafts.  The dining room is a restaurant open to the public!

The name Francois Bend comes from the property that the community was built on. The beautiful property is accompanied by a bayou named Bayou Francois.  The bayou bends around the back of the property offering lovely views and a place to enjoy a walk.


Our Core Values

Embracing Life & Culture

We honor and embrace the lives and history of residents and staff through a culture focused on engagement, community, and life.

Comfort & Care

We want residents to experience that “Home Sweet Home” feeling through the integration of clinical care with comfort, trust, and compassion created by positive relationships. We recognize that care goes beyond clinical services and believe that quality care includes nourishing food, safety and security, fostering relationships, and access to amenities, services, and activities.

Compassion & Integrity

Our priority is to have a positive impact on the lives of others, including residents and their families, staff, and community; all founded in compassion and transparency.
