Memory Care in Lincoln, NE (70th & O)

Joyful living for those with dementia.

CountryHouse’s third Lincoln location, constructed at 70th and O Street, offers exceptional memory care in a beautiful, historic setting. Constructed on the site of the Leavitt House, which was home to acting chief surgeons of the historic Veteran’s Hospital, our one-of-a-kind memory care residence has been carefully designed to complement the adjacent Veterans Administration buildings and grounds. Not only are we dedicated to providing a beautiful home—we’re also committed to creating and ensuring joy each and every day for our memory care residents. 

Two sister locations are located at 84th and Pine Lake and 25th and Old Cheney in Lincoln.
