Built On Innovation and Legacy
Serving the needs of communities since our inception.
The CovenantCare family – which includes Covenant Retirement Communities (CRC) and CovenantCare at Home – grew from the ministries of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) and its 127-year Christian legacy of community service and health care outreach.
In 1886, the Swedish Evangelical Covenant Mission Friends, an outreach of the ECC, founded the Home of Mercy in Chicago. The Home of Mercy was a multi-purpose entity that served as a retirement home, hospice, refuge, and hospital for local immigrants during a time of increasing social needs in the community. From this legacy of care grew the mission of CovenantCare at Home.
Research reveals that individuals heal faster in home environments. CovenantCare responds to this research by delivering quality care in a cost-effective way, by being mobile to patient needs.
In addition to assisting residents of CRC, one of the largest not-for-profit networks of residential communities for seniors in the country, CovenantCare has moved into the communities beyond. Collaborating with hospitals, physicians, and residential care facilities to provide Medicare–certified health care, personal care, and hospice services, CovenantCare at Home focuses on continuity among all medical providers to provide the best quality and patient-centered services to its clients.
We come into communities with a legacy of compassion armed with a future of health care innovation.
