Named the Calcutta House, in homage to Saint Teresa of Calcutta’s work with the dying, the facility is an ode to Acadian style architecture native to the area. Equipped with 12 private patient suites, a family consultation room, a family gathering room, and full-size warming kitchen that opens out to a southern style front porch, the facility offers all the conveniences of home. The facility also includes a small Chapel overlooking a brick grotto, an exterior meditative butterfly garden, a welcome fountain, and gazebo.

As a nonprofit hospice, one of our significant advantages is the ability to offer inpatient hospice services to homeless residents.

At Calcutta House, we care for all ages and hospice diagnoses, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. We have many experienced hospice clinicians including several that are Certified Hospice and Palliative Care. We have supported tens of thousands of families throughout Acadiana and are proud to be setting the standard of excellence for hospice care in our community.
