Who We Are
Old Brownlee Community Care Center is part of the CommCare family, a Louisiana non-profit corporation which operates 17 skilled nursing facilities all in the state of Louisiana. We believe that our company is small enough to recognize and support individual needs of each center, yet large enough to bring the resources necessary to continuously improve quality of care.
CommCare Corporation’s mission is to be an innovative leader in the development and delivery of quality health care services, and to be committed to a learning environment that attracts and develops dedicated care givers.
“Culture change” is a movement that seeks to transform services for older adults based on person-directed values and practices. This philosophy considers and respects voices of elders and upends the traditional practices of providing care. The design of the building puts residents in the center of the households, rather than the staff as has been the practice with a nurses; station at the center of traditional operations. Each household has its own entrance, laundry, kitchen and outdoors space. Common areas include a salon, chapel and a café where residents and family can help themselves to coffee, beverages and soft serve ice cream.
Beyond the building, our staff is on a journey to learn new ways of providing care from understanding what residents desire from when they arise and retire to when they bathe. Meal times and meal choices will take on a different look and feel. Consistent staffing in the households are designed to create a sense of family and community where caregivers really get to know residents and their families.
Core values are choice, dignity, respect, self-determination and purposeful living.
