Safe and Secure

In this day and age, we are all concerned with safety and security. Our campus is equipped with security surveillance equipment and staff 24/7. Francois Bend has a hurricane and emergency evacuation plan in place when needed.

Maintenance Free

We offer full-time building and grounds maintenance crews to ensure that the walking trails, gardens and buildings, inside and out are maintained and that necessary repairs to apartments are completed timely. Weekly housekeeping and laundry services are included in all levels of care.


Francois Bend is located in the historical community of Gonzales and enjoys the traditional small-town atmosphere.  Conveniently located near healthcare facilities, city government, law-enforcement agencies, churches and shopping, Gonzales is between the two largest cities in Louisiana. Gonzales is easily accessible from both I-10 and I-12.


We want all of our residents to feel comfortable in their new home. We offer three spacious floor plans. We have trained staff that will work with you and your family to make your move-in as smooth as possible. Every apartment can be climate controlled by the resident. The social pavilion and dining hall are centrally located.

Respect For Privacy

We recognize everyone’s right to privacy and go to great lengths to ensure that every resident has the privacy that they deserve. We respect that everyone deserves the right to maintain control over certain aspects of their life and we work with each resident to provide the quality of life that everyone wants.


Residents and their families are encouraged to take part in both on and off campus activities. Some of our on-campus activities include guest speakers and special events at Time Out, our sports bar. Our scheduled off-campus activities may include a shopping trip, sports event or a trip to the theatre.

Pet Friendly

We respect the fact that people love their furry companions and consider them to be part of the family. Francois Bend welcomes our residents’ pets and offers pet care assistance when necessary. 

Expert Staff

Our seasoned staff is available to provide residents with assistance 24/7. Francois Bend will have its own extensive training program for caregivers. This is just one more feature that makes Francois Bend special.

Outdoor Living

Our residents can enjoy the pleasure of spending time outside with Mother Nature. Our campus is bordered by Bayou Francois and has walking trails and gardens. There are landscaped areas where an outdoor picnic or just a visit with friends and family can be enjoyed.
