Assisted Living & More for Seniors in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Your Personal Garden Oasis Awaits…

Southside Gardens Retirement and Assisted Living Center is located in the heart of South Baton Rouge, close to restaurants, hospitals, and Louisiana State University. For over 20 years, we have been known as "the next best place to home" in our community.

Our independent living garden apartments are situated on five beautifully landscaped acres. Each is located on the ground floor with its own porch and fully equipped kitchen. In addition, we have a swimming pool where we offer water aerobics during the summer, and exercise classes year round.

Welcome to Southside Gardens

A family-owned residential community serving South Baton Rouge's senior citizens for over 30 years!


Independent Living Community

Our single, charming, garden-home cottages allow you to visit with family and friends from the comfort of your own porch while adhering to the "social distancing" protocol resulting from Covid-19. It's a great way to stay in place, yet not feel isolated. We're truly unique in that respect!

Walking around our winding pathways situated on five acres of beautifully landscaped property will lift your spirits. Our delicious home-cooked meals may be delivered to you, or you may enjoy meeting friends in the dinning room where we have implemented the social distance protocol. It's your home, it's your choice and we're here to serve you. Our sparkling pool with its adjoining whirlpool spa are ready for your use and once we get clearance from the State, we will open our beauty salon and begin our activities while implementing social distancing rules. And, yes, we do accept your small furry friend. Call us for your tour today!

Assisted Living

Our Assisted Living Community is housed in its own separate building on the property. We provide compassionate care for seniors who need assistance with their activities of daily living. It's fully staffed with round the clock care and we offer activities designed to keep our residents engaged in social interaction. As a State approved licensed facility, we follow the guidelines of the Louisiana Department of Health as it relates to COVID-19 and Hurricane evacuation plans. Currently, new residents must agree to quarantine for 14 days before interacting with others in the dinning and activities area among other requirements and we request a negative COVID-19 test. During your quarantine, a dedicated staff member will be assigned to assist you. Call us for more information and please see our Admission Requirements.
