In 1885, 14 New Orleans ministers and laypersons joined efforts to provide a charitable and benevolent association for the shelter, care and sustenance of indigent, aged and infirmed persons. They established the not-for-profit corporation of the German Protestant Home for the Aged and Infirmed, now known as Covenant Nursing Home. In 1887, they purchased the present Uptown site at 5919 Magazine Street.

Covenant Nursing Home is licensed by the State of Louisiana and Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services as a Skilled Nursing Facility. As such, we provide professional nursing supervision or 24-hour care/observation needed from an RN or LPN for medication requiring vital signs, paralysis, catheter, incontinence, blindness, aphasia, wound care, etc.
