CountryHouse at 70th & O Street in Lincoln.

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.

The heart of CountryHouse really shines through in our people. Our team members understand the difference between caring and giving care, and they’re committed to infusing our philosophy of treating people like family into everything they do.

“At Agemark communities, employees are treated with respect. Our company values you as an individual and give you the support you need to succeed. Our owners are present and well-known in our communities. That hands-on leadership is amazing!”
