We are committed to helping our participants improve their quality of life in a healthy environment that contributes to growth, happiness, and self-sufficiency.  

    How do you work with families to build a customized learning plan?

    As part of our onboarding process, we conduct an assessment of needs with the client and family members to get an understanding of the individual’s strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for improvement. During this time, we work closely with both the client and their loved ones to build out a customized learning plan that everyone agrees on. Once an individual is fully integrated into Arc of Acadiana, our team will provide families with updates on their progress, as well as an annual review to update the plan and implement new objectives.

    What is your visitation policy?

    Our group homes have an open-door visitation policy, which permits registered family members to visit their loved ones as often as possible. To register individuals as approved visitors, kindly speak to your onboarding team. Additionally, if you wish to take your loved one on an outing or vacation that extends beyond 24 hours, our residents are eligible for up to 45 days of leave from the home.

    What criteria do you have to meet to live at the Bossier City facility?

    You must be diagnosed with an intellectual disability and have significant medical issues that require daily nursing care.
