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.
