About Us


As a Schonberg Care Assisted Living Community, our number one priority is always the safety and well being of each of our residents. If you talk to one of our residents or their loved ones, they'll be the first to tell you that our emphasis on individualized quality of care is what matters most to them, and that exceptional level of care is our biggest concern day in and day out.

We operate within the exclusive "Schonberg Neighborhood Concept,” which focuses on grouping residents with shared needs and abilities, as we have found this to be highly successful in further enhancing specialized care and stimulating social activity and interaction. Residents that require minimal assistance are able to enjoy a fulfilling sense of independence without the daily stress of running a household, while residents that are experiencing varying levels of memory impairment are provided higher levels of assistance and security. No matter what level of care is needed, our residents and their families enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that their loved ones are receiving exactly what they need.

The Schonberg Philosophy

Words We Live By

"Several times each day, we answer the question, 'Is this in the best interest of each of our residents?' If the answer is yes, then we can't go wrong. This simple operating philosophy is the secret to our continued success."

—David Schonberg, Founder and President of Schonberg Care

David C. Schonberg

Schonberg Care,
Chief Executive Officer

David C Schonberg

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. 

As part of our commitment to the communities we live in, David embraces numerous volunteer and community leadership opportunities.  Since 2016 he has served as a board member for the Trinity Episcopal School, acting as Chairman of the Building and Grounds Committee since 2017.  He has also been an active member of the Young Presidents’ Organization since 2013, including two years as Membership Chairman and one year as Family & Spouse Chairman.  David also offers his development experience and skills to the Louisiana Children’s Museum where he has served on the Board since 2016; he is an integral member of the Construction Oversite Committee.  Perhaps most important, David also coaches his kids’ soccer teams in the Carrollton Children’s Soccer League.
