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: Director of Nursing, Mrs. Donna Cotton
Hi, My name is Donna Cotton, Director of Nursing at The Columns Community Care Center in Jonesville, LA. I have lived in Jonesville for the majority of my life. I have been a nurse for 35 years and 17 of those years have been spent at The Columns. I have been the DON at The Columns for 12 years.
As Director of Nursing, I like to lead my staff by example. The people we take care of here are not just residents. We look at them as our family. The Columns has truly been a second home to me over the years, and at times has felt like my only home.
We know that our residents are the heart of our small town community and here at The Columns, we strive to give back to that community. We keep our residents as active as we can. We hold community events at our facility so that the ones that can’t go out can still participate. At The Columns our residents are put first and I am proud to be a leader in a facility that is so special to our community.
