About Us

WE'RE NOT A BUSINESS - WE'RE A FAMILY.

Schonberg Care takes great pride in the local, personalized, all-hands-on-deck environment we have cultivated in the fourteen retirement communities we own and operate throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina. We know each community is a reflection of the unique culture, experiences, and history its residents bring with them. Therefore, we take great care in handpicking community leaders and team members that foster and enrich the environments that make each community special.

Over the years, we have developed our own winning formula for exceptional care and incomparable amenities that has resulted in much personal growth and great satisfaction among our residents. But rest assured that there is nothing "big box" or “cookie cutter” about our communities. We are deeply passionate about investing in and developing smaller, tight-knit communities that become home for our residents and that allow us to provide the highest levels of customized care, attentiveness, and respect they deserve.

Uniquely positioned as a leader in developing and managing top-tier senior communities and their day-to-day operations, Schonberg Care sets the standard in independent living, assisted living, and memory care throughout the region.  And we aren’t done yet! Our leadership team continuously seeks out ideal new locations to further fulfill our passion for providing seniors and their families with the most exceptional level of comfort and care possible, just as we would expect for our own family.

Following his extensive pursuit of the gold standard in senior care, South Louisiana native David Schonberg and a team of local investors, architects, and contractors broke ground on Schonberg Care’s first development, The Suites at Sugar Mill Point, in Houma, Louisiana in January 2001. David's background in healthcare and assisted living administration, combined with years of education, research, and planning, have yielded the finest level of senior care available in each of our fourteen Schonberg Care communities. Schonberg Care's trademark “neighborhood” concept for varying levels of need-based care represents the highest standard of assisted living and future growth in the industry.
