Residents at The Blake at Bossier City will have the peace of mind knowing these services are available to them:

Independent Living combines the convenience and comfort of community living with the independence of a private residence, and is designed for seniors who do not require personal assistance with activities of daily living. The Blake Independent Living offers freedom from the worries and responsibilities of maintaining a home, while offering many of the conveniences that make life easier and more enjoyable, including weekly housekeeping and convenient transportation to shopping and appointments. Also offered are delicious chef-prepared meals, fitness and wellness services, regularly scheduled social opportunities, and a resident emergency response system available 24 hours a day. You’ll be as busy as you like in our Independent Living community.

Assisted Living provides personal care services to seniors who value assistance with activities of daily living, including help with medication management, bathing, dressing, mobility, companion services, housekeeping, personal laundry, and more. For seniors who value their independence, but appreciate support with daily tasks, The Blake at Bossier City Assisted Living begins with a Customized Service Care Plan. This plan outlines areas of assistance that our dedicated care staff will provide. Resident peace of mind is a priority at The Blake. Licensed nursing staff is on site 24 hours a day, and a one-touch resident emergency response system is monitored around the clock.

Memory Care offers specialized care and programs for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. The Blake at Bossier City’s Memory Care offers a secure residential neighborhood dedicated to memory care, with a care philosophy centered on building trusting relationships with residents that foster emotional well-being. We recognize the unique needs of seniors who are experiencing memory loss and proudly offer a structured program designed to encourage individuality and support each resident’s overall well-being. From the initial environmental design of the neighborhood including a beautifully landscaped courtyard, to the establishment of a close relationship with each resident and family, our goal is to foster a level of uncompromising trust.

When fully occupied, The Blake anticipates creating 70 full and part-time jobs and will become an integral part of the Bossier City community. Arrive Architecture Group based in Dallas, Texas is providing architectural design.
