Accommodating spaces

Premium reception venue at Central Funeral HomeCentral Funeral Home offers a number of flexible spaces for both intimate and larger gatherings. When you enter the spacious lobby, you see our administrative offices to the right and a cozy coffee bar to the left. There are two chapels located across the hall from each other. Identical in layout and function, each comfortably accommodates 125 guests in chair seating. The chapels are flooded with natural light during the day and are equipped with audio systems and flat-screen televisions for the display of personalized slideshows or videos. We also have an electric organ.

The versatility and flow of our spaces allows us to set up a service in one chapel and a reception in the other. For those who wish to host a catered reception before, after or during a service, we can arrange food and drinks.

Niko the comfort dog

Niko the comfort dogNiko is a special dood, or goldendoodle, as poodle/golden retriever mixes are called. A handsome pup from Louisiana-based Fluffnstuff Doodles, Niko has a fur pattern on his chest that looks like angel wings. When funeral home manager Whitney Lang first spotted this puppy on the breeder’s website, she knew he could be much more than man’s best friend. She saw him as a gentle spirit who could lighten the burden of those with heavy hearts. "Niko brings comfort to grieving families making arrangements, as well as joy, stability and engagement to both our staff and client families," Lang says.

A loyal funeral home team member, Niko worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and accompanied Lang when Central Funeral Home received an award from the Louisiana Funeral Directors Association for outstanding service. He loves to meet new people and is a steadfast solace to families planning services. He’s met with widows and widowers who participate in the funeral home’s LIFT program, goes on field trips to Greenoaks Funeral Home, and brings endless smiles when he plays zoomies, fetch and tug of war.
