ABOUT THE AGENCY 
The John J. Hainkel, Jr. Home and Rehabilitation Center, chartered in 1891, is a non-profit nursing home located in Uptown New Orleans that provides health care services to New Orleans Medicaid, Medicare, Veterans Affairs, and private patients. 

WHAT YOU DO 
Students serving at the Hainkel Home will assist with patient activities. These activities are designed to provide our patients with stimulation, companionship, fun, and a sense of community. Numerous activities are scheduled every week including bingo, music hour, coffee hour, outside trips, movie time, reading, snack time, holiday socials, barbecues, and so on. Students can also visit patients in their rooms and read, play games, or talk.

WHAT YOU LEARN 
Students will learn compassion and patience for others by working with those who are handicapped and/or are dealing with mental and physical illnesses. Students will also learn how to assist those who are not able to fully care for themselves.
