Who We Are
The Columns Community Care Center is part of the CommCare family, a Louisiana non-profit corporation which operates 12 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. In fact 8 of our centers have been awarded either four or five stars by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
Letter from The Columns Community Care Center Administrator
Welcome to The Columns Community Care Center!
When you enter our facility, you feel a sense of ‘home’. You will see smiling staff members and happy residents inside a beautiful – yet comfortable building. From the moment visitors and families first step into The Columns, they often comment about the overwhelming feeling of family, saying it is like no other nursing center they have ever visited. That is The Columns experience.
In addition to offering our residents a beautiful home, we offer a very wide variety of medical services and skill levels at our facility. We have a medical director who rounds in the facility weekly, and a nurse practitioner who rounds three days a week. This added level of advanced care helps to ensure the health and well-being of our residents here in their home. This level of engagement allows our practitioners to really get to know the residents and deepens the provider-resident relationships.
We offer three disciplines of therapy services including speech, occupational and physical. And, last year, of all of those who turned to us for care, 57% were discharged back to their homes in their respective communities. Our therapy team is pro-active, dedicated and committed to helping our short term residents achieve maximum optimal results!
The person-centered care approach is embraced at The Columns Community Care Center. Our trained staff in nursing, dietary, activities and housekeeping all work together to ensure that each resident receives care and attention specific to them- providing an experience like no other.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that you will come by and experience The Columns and let us make our home your home.
The Staff at The Columns Community Care Center
Staff Spotlight: Administrator, Mr. Luke Brouillette
Hello there. My name is Luke Brouillette, Administrator of The Columns Community Care Center in Jonesville. I am a native of Marksville in Avoyelles Parish where I spent my entire childhood and now currently again reside. As a true Cajun at heart, I understand and value the importance of family and community.My journey to becoming an Administrator began not long after my daughter was born. It was at this time when I first experienced the joy and rewards of caring for someone who was completely dependent upon me. It unveiled a loving, compassionate side that I had no idea was part of me. My former career as a cartographer, although somewhat rewarding, left me with much to be desired. I knew that I wanted to make a difference for those who could not care for themselves. I wanted to be part of something that contributed to the greater good. The memories of my grandparents also reminded me that life is what you make of it. They were all very happy and at peace, even in their final years. They never missed a beat.
Since I became the Administrator on March 2, 2016, I can say that I am proud to call The Columns home. I do not consider it to be a nursing facility—I consider it to be another home away from home. The sense of friendship, love, and community that radiates throughout The Columns is evident through the dedicated staff and residents. I look forward to our future and strive to ensure that our residents are provided the best care and quality of life possible.
