Tradition is important to New Orleanians, and with origins reaching back to the 1890’s the John J. Hainkel, Jr. Home and Rehabilitation Center is steeped in tradition. Located in the historical uptown district just one block off of Magazine Street, our center sits on an entire city block not far from Audubon Park. Our beautiful courtyard entices not only residents, who enjoy the peaceful setting, but also people from the community. Visitors may find children trick or treating or hunting Easter eggs or Mardi Gras krewes parading through the courtyard and building. New Orleanians are passionate about our food and so is John J. Hainkel, Jr. Home and Rehabilitation. With a dietary staff with an average tenure of 19 years, these ladies know the secrets of creole cooking. Residents and visitors consistently compliment meals.

Loyola Music Therapy
And what would New Orleans tradition be without music? Loyola University’s School of Music has established a Loyola Music Therapy program that brings their talented students to John J. Hainkel, Jr. Home and Rehabilitation Center to interact with residents. Studies have shown that music contributes to communicating, building sense of identity, preserving or restoring social capital, and strengthening social networks in communities.
