Person-Centered Care by Design and Philosophy

Welcome to Ponchatoula Community Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center that brings a unique design and a philosophy that honors the individual and their choices.

Visitors often comment that Ponchatoula Community Care Center is different, but the difference is much deeper than the design. The design supports the philosophy of person-centered care that honors choice and is reflected not only in the building, but also throughout the operation of the building

Ponchatoula features several smaller households that surround resident common areas including a kitchen, dining area, and living designed to place the resident as the center of attention and ensuring they have easy access a variety of spaces. Resident rooms feature private rooms with private baths. Each households has 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. Staff are dedicated to individual households to help foster relationships and allow residents and staff to really get to know one another – knowing their habits, likes and dislikes. Residents and staff are encouraged to dine together and join in activities such as cooking a favorite dish.

Common areas may be found throughout the center from the intimate to the spacious. The café offers a space for residents and their guests to enjoy 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 culture change journey and invite you to learn more the steps we will be taking.
