Person-Centered Care by Design and Philosophy

Welcome to Old Brownlee Community Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center that ushers in both a new building and a philosophy that honors the individual and their choices.

From the moment visitors walk in the door, they will notice that Old Brownlee Community Care Center is different, but the difference goes much deeper than the physical plant. The difference is the philosophy of person-centered care.

Our center is designed to support this philosophy in a form follows function sort of way.

Old Brownlee features three households, each with a kitchen, dining area, living area and outdoor space designed to place the resident as the center of attention and ensuring they have easy access a variety of spaces. The common area is surrounded by private rooms each with a private bathroom. Households have their own front porch where residents can enjoy outdoor space and visitors may enter through the front porch or main entry.

The resident is the focal point by design and philosophy. Staff are dedicated to individual households and are encouraged to dine with residents and join them in activities such as cooking a favorite dish. This interaction fosters an atmosphere where staff become extended family and really get to know residents, their likes, dislikes and allows them to pick up on any changes more quickly.

Common areas abound from the intimate to the spacious. At the café residents and their guests may help themselves to coffee, cappuccino, beverages and soft serve ice cream – a favorite of the grandchildren!

Staff participate in ongoing culture change education, learning how to honor choice in daily activities such as dining, natural awakening and bath times. We are committed to continuing our journey towards and invite you to learn more about our quest.

Who We Are

Established in 1994, CommCare Corporation is a Louisana-based non-profit that began as owners and operators of skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers. CommCare has since embarked on a journey to provide more integrated, person-centered transitional care throughout the care continuum.

Rehab to Home

While many residents are able to return home, our goal is to get each individual functioning at their highest level and capability through physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Our fully equipped rehabilitation gym is staffed by physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists.


Volunteers are integral to the CommCare experience, and volunteering at a CommCare community or hospice can be a rewarding experience! Teach an instrument, voice, or dance? Like to cook?
