Schonberg Care Expands Its Louisiana Footprint
NEW ORLEANS, La. — Schonberg Care, Louisiana’s largest family-owned and operated senior living expert, recently acquired St. Margaret’s at Belleville Assisted Living, growing its presence in the Louisiana senior living industry. The community has been renamed to The Suites at Algiers Point in reverence to the historic, New Orleans neighborhood in which it is housed. Details were shared in a press release.
Purchase of the New Orleans senior living community occurred in early June 2019. The company has recently completed a million-dollar renovation that included design changes, updates and renovations at the community after gathering feedback from residents and their families, as well as employees.
“We’re thrilled to offer Schonberg Care’s services to the people of Old Algiers,” said Mike Schonberg, CEO of Schonberg Care. “We’re excited to offer seniors with the highest level of care they need, as we work to fulfill our mission to enhance the lives of every person we serve here at The Suites at Algiers Point.”
Located on Pelican Avenue, the senior community is approximately five miles east of downtown New Orleans, just a few blocks off the Mississippi River. Originally the Belleville Elementary School, The Suites at Algiers Point offers 53 state-of-the-art assisted living and memory care apartments. Floorplans range from 300 to 800 square feet. Apartments offer a kitchenette, living room, private bath and separate bedroom. A luxurious courtyard patio features fountains and lush tropical landscaping.
On-site services include medication management and administration, licensed nurses and certified nursing aides onsite daily and 24-hour emergency assistance and alert system. Residents can also enjoy private dining and participate in planned social, recreational, cultural, spiritual, fitness and educational activities.
“New Orleans is a very tight-knit, family-oriented community,” added Schonberg. “Local seniors want senior living that isn’t too big but has the homey features that remind them of their past. We are excited to add The Suites at Algiers Point to the Schonberg Care family as a place that senior call home while celebrating the legacies they have created.”
The property has undergone design changes, updates and renovations in the last four months. For this endeavor, Schonberg Care partnered with local partners including Sheri Daigle of SD Design and Joe Boudreaux of JE Boudreaux Services.
The main structure of the original Belleville School – a three-story, red-brick building – was completed in 1898, and wooden annexes were built in 1907 and 1925. The school’s makeover to a senior living community happened in 1989.
Locally owned and operated by Schonberg Care, The Suites at Algiers Point is the newest community in the senior living experts portfolio offering a family environment and professional team of caregivers. Schonberg Care currently has retirement communities throughout Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina. Each community is a reflection of the unique culture, experiences and history its residents bring with them. Therefore, Schonberg Care takes great care in handpicking community leaders and team members that foster and enrich the qualities that make each community special.
