Do you want to stay in your current home, but are experiencing difficulty? Counselors are available to visit and complete an assessment of your situation. You will be offered options based on your individual needs. This information is strictly confidential and will help you and your family make informed decisions. Examples of services which may help you remain in your home include:
- Tasks of daily living
- Home-delivered meals
- Adult day services
- Transportation options
- Minor home repairs
- Assistive living devices
- Emergency response system
Lifeline® Personal Emergency Response System
If a medical condition makes it a risk to remain in your home, it may be comforting to obtain a Lifeline® emergency response system. Lifeline® is a device worn either like a watch or a necklace. At the first sign of a medical emergency, you can summon help with the push of a button. AutoAlert also is available to call for help if you have fallen and are unable to press your button.
Staff also can help you with payment options.
Handy Home Services
Many people find home maintenance responsibilities challenging. Our Handy Home Services program offers minor carpentry, electrical, plumbing, repairs and general home maintenance tasks. We provide help with yard work such as mowing, trimming, edging, spring and fall yard cleanup, gutter cleaning, snow removal and more.
Transportation is provided within a specific boundary area. Call 402-441-7990 for details. If you would like to use the van, the suggested contribution is only $2 each way ($4 round trip). Please call 402-441-7863 the day before you need the van to schedule your pick-up time.
Lancaster County Public Rural Transit (LCPRT)
LCPRT is intended for any resident of Lancaster County (plus the nearby communities of Adams, Ceresco, Cortland, Eagle and Greenwood). Riders must be at least 13 to ride alone, and the other guideline to be met is that one boarding of the bus must occur outside Lincoln city limits.
Other Transportation Options
If you are no longer driving, options are available. These include assistance with public transportation, rides to our centers and rural and social transportation.
When It's Time to Move
If it is no longer safe for you to remain at home, but you aren't sure where to turn, Aging Partners can help you analyze your options. These include independent senior living communities, licensed assisted living facilities, subsidized housing, nursing home facilities and memory care facilities. Our counselors work with you and your family to match your needs and budget with appropriate housing and care.
Moving to a new home can be a challenge at any age. When moving to a smaller home you will need to prioritize which of your belongings you need most. Aging Partners can offer options for your successful transition to a new home.
