OUR Community

Wynhoven Health Care Center has proudly served the Greater New Orleans community since 1987. Monsignor Wynhoven developed programming to meet the needs of the elderly on the Westbank in Jefferson Parish. Wynhoven provides services ranging from skilled nursing care and short-term rehabilitation to hospice and end-of-life care. Conveniently located across from West Jefferson Medical Center, Wynhoven provides 24-hour nursing care for the elderly in a quaint, home-like environment with common areas and outdoor spaces. Pristinely managed, Wynhoven is a close-knit community with a lot of charm. When our residents are not enjoying themselves in their spaces, they’re mingling over coffee in one of Wynhoven’s many community nooks.

About the Residences

Your loved one’s rooms come fully-furnished and include a closet, storage space and an easy-access lavatory. Rooms are also equipped with state-of-the-art safety features including an emergency call system and smoke detectors, so you can rest assured knowing our team is readily available to respond to any potential accidents that may occur. We also staff a nighttime security team and actively manage emergency plans. In addition to Wynhoven’s residential features, it is also the home to a spacious rehabilitation center. Wynhoven’s rehabilitation services include physical, occupational and speech therapy with onsite therapists available for care up to five days a week. Whether it’s restrengthening the body after an injury or relearning how to handle everyday activities like folding laundry or cooking meals, the therapy gym is equipped with the specific tools our residents need to recover and return to normalcy.

Life at Wynhoven Health care Center

The community at Wynhoven Health Care Center is bustling with activities and events that keep residents spiritually, mentally and physically active. Mass is celebrated daily, and our staff hosts entertaining recreational activities throughout the day. Each of our residents’ three daily meals comes with diet options and after the plates are put away, it’s time to play! The dining hall is at the center of Wynhoven’s most exciting seasonal soirees including themed holiday parties and a grand Mardi Gras Ball.

Active living is especially important to our memory care residents. Connected to our memory care center is our infinity walking path – a secure, figure-8 paved garden designed to encourage outdoor activity without any risk. It is a peaceful area at the center of a nurturing, vibrant and spiritual community.
