Our Services

We believe services are just part of everyday living at CountryHouse. Because CountryHouse was designed by memory care experts to look and feel like a family home, service delivery is discreetly built into the natural function of the household.

At CountryHouse, our philosophy of care focuses on creating moments of joy.

Each house has gracious dining rooms, comfortable living rooms, and bedrooms clustered in quiet wings. There’s a hands-on kitchen for residents to participate in simple food preparation activities. The residential layout enables friends to enjoy socializing together… or find peaceful seclusion. In addition, circular pathways encourage barrier-free walking, both indoors and out.

Amenities also include suite choices, a family dining room, salon/spa, secured entries, Wellness Office, spacious gathering rooms with fireplaces, and an enclosed courtyard with patio, gardens and water feature. Families enjoy visiting in the beautiful and comfortable common areas.

A full range of services to meet every need

CHCumb IMG_9447Services include 24-hour care, daily home-cooked meals with mealtime assistance if needed, medication supervision, help with bathing, dressing and hair care, housekeeping, laundry and transportation. A nurse is on-site Monday through Friday, and on call 24/7. Doctors, podiatrists, beauticians and other affiliated professionals make regular visits.

A full time program coordinator oversees a 52-week curriculum of activities that are integrated with LifeCycles, our signature, whole-person wellness program. The program curriculum is designed to maximize all four elements of wellness: Spiritual, Intellectual, Physical and Spiritual.

Because everything we do is considered an activity, all staff participate in activities at CountryHouse seven days a week. There is a balance of daily, routine activities such as Morning Exercise and the Afternoon Bus Ride, and weekly activities such as Tuesday Pet Visits. Special activities add variety, depending on the season, such as bus trips, dances, classroom visits, concerts, parties, and more. There’s also a balance of group and personalized, one-on-one activities. Interaction with pets, children and nature are strong elements of our program curriculum.

Families are invited to weekly social events as well as annual “Family Traditions” events such as a Mothers Day Tea or Breakfast with Santa.

For those who are not quite ready for full-time residency, daytime and/or overnight stays are available. It’s a great way to give CountryHouse a try, or a solution for when an in-home caregiver needs a break. We also offer caregiver support meetings and educational events to the community.

Knowing each person’s story is the key to personalized care

Memory loss is different for each person, so care is customized for each resident at CountryHouse. Individual service plans are based on an assessment of needs as well as interests, daily routines, personal history and preferences. Knowing as much as possible about each person helps staff relate to individuals on personal level, provide care more effectively, and make quick adjustments when needs change.

This approach requires a higher staff-to-resident ratio than is normally staffed in assisted living.

In addition, every effort is made to maintain an environment that is both reassuring and safe. That’s why CountryHouse staff do not wear scrubs, which people associate with hospitals and illness. Providing assistance with the activities of daily living as discreetly as possible helps minimize anxiety.

Most importantly, our services are provided by very special people, hand-picked for their patience, kindness and empathy. They receive initial and ongoing training on the latest best practices for dementia care.

CountryHouse Stories

W e honor a person's life by telling his or her story. Alzheimer’s disease gradually robs people of the memories that remind them of who they are, where they’ve been, and what they’ve done. By gathering and preserving memories, we can bring important events and experiences from the past into the present. We can be the link to each one’s life history. Stories help affirm all the positive things a person has done in life and can still do. They remind us of who the individual was before Alzheimer’s disease.

My name is Jeff Ryan and my father, Jim Ryan is a resident at Country House in Lincoln, NE on 84th Street. I wanted to write a testimonial to the Country House organization. My father has lived at County House for a few years now. What helped my family decide on Country House over the other care facilities in the area, is the Country House organization. Country House is a care facility that truly cares, from the top person in the organization to the chef in the kitchen. Every person associate…

Dear Becky, It has been almost two months since dad died (Erick Seifert), and I wanted to express our deep gratitude and appreciation to you and all of your outstanding staff at Astoria Gardens. As you recall, our family was quite involved with selecting a memory care unit for dad. We came armed with a long list of detailed questions when looking for the ideal placement. Having experience as an RN with hospice and home health care background, I knew what I wanted AND did not want when it c…

Dear Mr. Hug, Once again, your team at the Kensington has proven their devotion to your motto, “Treating People Like Family is the Heart of What We Do!” You were kind enough to visit my family in my mother’s room the day that we moved her in a year ago. This evening, with my brother, Mike, from Hastings out-of-town, I was faced with being “on call” with my mother Doris Kleppinger from where I live in Virginia. She has been facing some issues of not eating, difficulty swallowing, and breath…
