I love this place. They took care of my dad from January till April. He had a long and wonderful life, we had more time to spend with him before he passed. Thanks ViaChristie for giving my family more time with dad.

I visited this facility

A wonderful place to live. My father was a resident and he was given great care and compassion by the angels that work there. We were so blessed to have found this special place for him. We are forever greatful for the caring and compassion that he received until his death.

Physically, a nice place as far as public areas decorated nicely. Nice, daily Mass. However, large amount of turnover in the staff, too frequent smoking breaks for the staff, numerous times when medication was not administered timely, if at all. Camodes not cleaned for hours, sometimes days. Depends on what floor your relative is on, what nursing staff is on duty. We moved our mother out, too many instances of forgetfulness to give her meds, remind her to eat, etc, she was ignored too many times.

The Via Christe Assisted Living Community is hands down the most impressive community I've ever seen. It has a religious background, rich in Christian values. My grandfather immediately fell in love with the services, staff, and residents. Every Sunday and Wednesday the facility offers worship services. If for some reason a resident decides they want a one-on-one meeting, they can choose the time and place. It's really lovely how they give the control back to the residents. Aside from the worship, the community offers games, movie events, field trips to parks and museums, and daily aerobics. The transition is made easy for the residents, as each staff member is skilled and caring. The residents are given nutritious meals. The nurses make sure each resident has vitamins and enough protein to remain healthy. My grandfather made friends so quickly thanks to the events they host monthly, too! He and a few others formed a weekly bible study and the staff make sure they are comfortable and given everything they need to sustain on their own. It is such a wonderful place! The facility is decorated beautifully, it could be a room from any one of our grandparents' homes. As long as my grandfather is happy, I am happy. And he is quite the happy camper!

    About Via Christe


    Welcome to Via Christe Assisted Living and Memory Care

    Via Christe Assisted Living Community opened in October of 2005 after a group of Omaha investors wanted to provide housing services for seniors in one of the city’s most historic neighborhoods. The building acquired was the former “Foxley Building” which was built in 1962 as part of Duchesne College. This 41,150 sq. ft. four level building was completely renovated into “assisted living” apartments and “memory care” apartments.

    Via Christe which is Latin for “Way of Christ” now proudly serves Omaha seniors. Offering elevated care levels in a comprehensive support environment that includes daily Catholic Mass in the stunning “Christ the Good Shepherd” Chapel.
