    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Elkhorn

    Elkhorn is considered part of the Omaha, Nebraska, metro region. This small community is located close to picturesque Downtown Omaha, a walkable area with plenty of shopping, dining and outdoor entertainment and festivals for seniors to enjoy.

    Elkhorn's population is just 6,000, 9% of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. As they age, many of these individuals may need to transition into one of the area's three assisted living facilities. Assisted living facilities in Nebraska are licensed and regulated by the state's Department of Health and Human Services. Each facility is required to provide services that include three meals per day, staff available 24 hours a day, help with daily living activities and noncomplex nursing interventions. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Elkhorn

    • Residents of Elkhorn enjoy all four seasons, with cold, snowy winters and lows that drop into the teens. Summers are warm, with July high temperatures in the mid-80s. 
    • Nebraska is one of the least tax-friendly states for retirees. Social Security and retirement income are subject to state income tax. In addition, Nebraska residents pay high property taxes. Elkhorn seniors budgeting for assisted living may want to take this into account. 
    • The overall cost of living in Omaha, of which Elkhorn is a part, is 95 compared to the national average of 100. Housing costs average 87 compared to 100, although healthcare costs are 25% higher than the country's average. While the lower housing costs may mean assisted living fees may be less, the higher healthcare costs may be of concern to many seniors. 
    • Elkhorn residents have access to Omaha's Metro bus line. Seniors aged 65 and older and people with a qualifying disability may be eligible for reduced rates. Paratransit is also available. 
    • Elkhorn, as part of the greater Omaha area, is home to world-class medical facilities, including Aurora Lakeland Medical Center and Mercy Elkhorn Medical Center in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Overall crime rates in the greater Omaha area are notably higher than the rest of the nation. Violent crimes are at 34 compared to the national average of 23, while property crimes, including petty theft and car break-ins, are 56 compared to the U.S average of 35. Elkhorn seniors are advised to take precautions with themselves and their property.
