Nebraska Assisted Living Communities
WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

Nebraska is a state known for its community atmosphere and the sunny attitudes of its residents. Offering plenty of outdoor activities, Nebraska is a place for retirees who enjoy hunting, fishing and bird-watching. Between the wetlands, prairies, sandhills, and woods, hunters have a plethora of options to choose from. Fishermen take advantage of the hundreds of lakes and streams, while birdwatchers observe the sandhill crane migration from March to April.
The state’s affordability is worth considering. The overall cost of living is 11% below the U.S. average. For those who want to work in retirement, unemployment in the state is just 4.2%, the third-lowest rate in the nation.
Though much of the state is rural, there are cities like Lincoln and Omaha that offer entertainment such as theater, music, ballet, art and the largest public collection of quilts on earth.
Nebraska’s combination of affordability, friendly residents and outdoor fun make it one for retirees to think about.
