Resident safety is our number one priority at Peristyle Beau West. That’s why we constantly update our safety protocols to ensure our residents’ health and wellness. Below are a handful of ways we help keep your elderly loved one on their feet and out of the emergency room.
If you are looking for assisted living and memory care in New Orleans, don’t hesitate to contact Peristyle Beau West. We are a certified memory care community in Mandeville, Louisiana, just off Lake Pontchartrain on the north shore.
Peristlye Beau West is a memory care community located on the Northshore of New Orleans in Mandeville. Our community is a 100% secure, lockdown memory care community. All doors have a security code only accessed by staff members. A secure community is integral to providing quality care for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s by preventing wandering patients and outside intruders.
Senior citizens commonly face difficulties using the restroom on their own and other activities of daily living. Accessibility, safety, and comfort are just several benefits that ADA-compliant bathrooms provide our residents. At Peristyle Beau West, our community is outfitted with wide doorways, grab bars, low-level sinks, toilets, and lever handles. These simple yet essential features improve accessibility and help ensure residents with limited strength and mobility have a safe and dignified restroom experience.

Assisted living communities are often considered a safe haven for older adults. However, ensuring they are secure for their safety is critical. This is where security cameras come in. Peristyle Beau West's security cameras help monitor the facility and alert staff of any suspicious or criminal activity. Security cameras can also be used to monitor the health and well-being of residents and ensure that they receive proper care and attention from staff members.
A clean, organized, and safe environment will reduce the risk of falling or other accidents seniors can experience in their living space. Removing cluttered walkways and floors, securing loose rugs with pads that grip the floor, and hiding or relocating cords can reduce potential tripping hazards. Adequate lighting in all areas, especially hallways and entryways, can help prevent trips and falls, making it more comfortable and safer. Our team of caregivers and maintenance staff constantly monitor loose clutter and potential hazards, ensuring your elderly loved one doesn’t have an unfortunate accident.
Medication management is essential for senior health care. Seniors must take their prescribed medications safely and correctly to avoid becoming unbalanced and falling. At Peristyle Beau West, we understand our residents may have difficulty remembering to take medications and the correct dosage. With the help of our professional caregiving staff and state-of-the-art medication management tools, we efficiently keep track of and administer our residents’ medications.
Through each step of the journey, we are here to guide, and support your loved one and your family allowing you to enjoy many more special moments with your loved one. We provide 100% quality time and peace of mind.

At Peristyle Beau West, we have a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) on staff 24/7. This is unique to our community, as nearly all memory care communities in greater New Orleans only have LPNs during regular business hours. Why is this so important? It is an extra layer of security for your elderly loved one in case of a medical emergency or even administering medication at night.
At Peristyle Beau West, our community is outfitted with state-of-the-art lights to give our beloved residents the highest lighting standard. Additionally, our caregivers adjust brightness levels based on the time of day to lower the risk of falls and help seniors maintain their vision and overall quality of life. We ensure all bathroom lights are turned on before assisting our residents with bathing and toileting.
A balanced diet, regular exercise, and calcium and vitamin D supplements will improve bone health, helping seniors maintain their independence and strength. Our bones become more fragile and prone to fractures and other injuries as we age. At Peristyle Beau West, our caregivers are trained in providing a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D. We encourage our residents to eat a balanced and healthy diet, assisting in improved bone health and reducing the risk of osteoporosis. We provide three meals a day and several snacks during activities.
Most assisted living communities are at least two floors, making it difficult for residents to navigate the premises. Our community is a one-story building, allowing ease of travel between the different wings and areas for our residents. This is especially important for people with disabilities and mobility restrictions.
If safety is our top priority, then convenience is our number two. Visiting physicians provide a convenient way for individuals to receive medical care without having to leave our community. Our preferred traveling physician offers various services, including diagnosis and treatment, preventive care, and follow-up visits. We also have our own pharmacy, making it easy for your elderly loved one to receive their medications quickly and without having to access an outside provider.
Vision, oral, and hearing health are the three most important things that deteriorate among senior citizens—making it difficult to perform everyday tasks and activities. Fortunately, many devices are available such as eyeglasses, dentures, and hearing aids help improve and maintain lifestyle and overall health. At Peristyle Beau West, we encourage our residents to stay consistent and follow up on their routine vision, dental, & hearing checkups. We inform families whenever we notice deterioration in these areas so you stay informed at all times.
