Who We Are
Ridgecrest 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 starts by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
Letter from Ridgecrest Community Care Center Team
We invite you to come experience Ridgecrest Community Care Center.
Visitors to our center will find that we seek to combine quality care with an enriching experience. Ridgecrest is staffed with experienced personnel including nurses with certifications in long term care, wound care and IV therapy. We have also engaged a nurse practitioner who brings another level of expertise to our center. Our therapy team is has a record of helping people regain function and ability. In addition to the education and experience of our staff, Ridgecrest Community Care Center focuses on monthly continuing education topics and staff members have access to online education 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Ridgecrest Community Care Center began the commitment to provide an enriching experience with our building itself. Visitors, residents and volunteers often comment on the beauty of the building and its many common areas. They also notice the atmosphere at Ridgecrest Community Care Center, where the families, visitors and volunteers create a warm, home-like environment. Our commitment to enrichment reaches beyond the building. Our staff is taking the journey to the “person first,” philosophy of Person-centered care means that we provide care in an environment that respects the desires of the individual. So we look for opportunities to offer choice – whether it is offering choices at mealtimes or choice of bathing times. We honor resident preferences such as natural awakening, which means residents awaken when they choose, rather than for our convenience.
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, 54% of those who turn to us for care, rehab and return home successfully.
