At Chateau de Notre Dame, we believe that remaining mentally and physically active is key to maximizing quality of life. As such, we encourage residents to take part in the many individual and group activities offered here, ranging from arts and crafts to reading, games, parties, movies, the ever-popular Bingo, and more. Most importantly, however, we believe that the most fulfilled life is one strengthened by faith, lived in a supportive environment built on strong spiritual foundations. At the forefront of our Mission, Chateau de Notre Dame provides deeply faith-based care to assist and encourage residents of all faiths along their own individual journeys.
Opened in 1977, Chateau de Notre Dame marked the beginning of the Horizon Program for the elderly, developed under Archbishop Phillip M. Hannan for the Archdiocese of New Orleans. Chateau de Notre Dame, French for "House of Our Lady," was founded as a community of Independent & Assisted Living Apartments and a Nursing Home. The Mission of Chateau de Notre Dame is to provide a continuum of compassionate, quality and affordable care that meets the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of each senior resident - from Independent Living to Nursing Home Skilled Care. In doing so, we seek to ensure our residents' maximum independence, dignity, privacy and individuality through the delivery of custom health and social services within a supportive, faith-based environment.
