Who We Are
Old Jefferson Community Care Center is part of the CommCare family, a Louisiana non-profit corporation which operates 12 skilled nursing facilities 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.
What Makes Us Special
At Old Jefferson Community Care Center, we seek to combine quality care with an enriching experience. Our spacious, well-appointed center provides an environment in order to do just that – enhance residents’ experience – from their living spaces to how we provide services.
To attain our expectation of high quality care, residents and families will find that we are staffed with highly qualified personnel, including a physician who has an office at our center and is on site five days a week, and a registered dietitian who heads our dietary department. In addition to the education and experience of our staff, CommCare focuses on monthly continuing education topics and staff members have access to online education 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Our center makes a point to celebrate its residents through “Resident of the Month.” The staff members profile the life of a resident each month and post this resident’s story on the lighted community bulletin board. Each resident is also honored on their birthday with special birthday cakes.
Our staff is taking the journey to the “person first,” philosophy of care. Dining features tableside service where residents are offered choices and Old Jefferson Community Care Center has a refreshment bar that residents can enjoy at any time.
The emphasis of our Rehab Community is on rehab to home, where a wing of our center is dedicated to help individuals attain this goal. The emphasis on return to home creates an atmosphere where everyone encourages one another. In fact, while we still provide traditional long term care, more than 70% of those who turn to us for care, rehab and return home successfully.
We appreciate you visiting our website and we are here to answer any questions you may have specific to our facility or your loved one’s long-term or short-term goals.
Please do not hesitate to call.
Sincerely, the Old Jefferson Community Care Center Team
