Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site

The convenience of Whealdon Esates' on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.

Members of the surrounding community patronize the salon – which has been on-site for 20 years. Representatives from local beauty schools come in and offer services. Residents even enjoy access to a massage therapist.


Fitness Right at Home

Whealdon Estates residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.

We offer exercise and chair yoga each morning so our residents start the day off right.


Let Us Serve You

Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Whealdon Estates' dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.

Chicken and sausage gumbo is a huge hit with this community. Our chefs constantly check in with residents to get new and favorite family recipes – and make them. Our cook specializes in homemade soups. Most of our dishes reflect a Southern cooking influence.


Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community

There’s so much to explore in the Baton Rouge area and Whealdon Estates makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.

Whealdon Estates is a close community, with strong staff longevity records.

Life is Never Boring

Whealdon Estates' comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.

We maintain a community garden and our chef uses homegrown items in dishes. Whealdon Estates often receives musical guests. Many of our residents enjoy football tailgating.


Pets Make Life Better

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Whealdon Estates. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

"Willie" the Cat" and "Schotsy the Weenie Dog" are residents and loved by many. An open green area is frequented by pets and their owners, as well as a walking trail. All pets are known by name. Off-site therapy animals regularly visit the community.


Stay Connected With Technology and WiFi

Whealdon Estates is fully equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected. You can use a community desktop to stay up to date, or you can connect your personal devices to the WiFi in common areas throughout.

Residents enjoy a "Tech Tuesday" program run by our general manager, where they receive help with their phones, email, laptops and more.

Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.

Whealdon Estates operates its own travel program that lets residents get a taste of faraway countries. Once a month, residents can enjoy a themed happy hour with music, food and presentations related to a new country. They also get a stamp in their community passport.
