Finding Care for an Older Adult
Locating care for an older adult can be a difficult and confusing task, especially if you have never had any experience in finding and setting up services for an older person who may need help.
What's the best way to find the right services at the right time at the right price?
The staff at the Northeast Nebraska Area Agency on Aging, through information and assistance, will answer your questions about where to find services and may make a referral to the appropriate program. The services are individualized based on the strengths and needs of the older person.
The staff through the Care Management Program are experts at finding the most appropriate care for an older adult and can offer assistance for complicated situations. There is also a program called Senior Care Options which assists the older adult and their families who are considering nursing home placement. The Aged and Disabled Medicaid Waiver Program is a service system that provides care options in the home or assisted living as an alternative to nursing home placement.
