    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Omaha

    Omaha, Nebraska, is at the forefront of fresh dining and the farm-to-fork movement, making it an ideal location for seniors and people of all ages who prefer wholesome foods. There are more than 46,000 seniors in the city, some of whom may benefit from living in an assisted living environment. To support these seniors, there are 26 assisted living facilities in the city, with another five nearby in neighboring communities. 

    In Omaha, as well as the rest of Nebraska, Assisted living facilities (ALFs) are licensed by the Nebraska Division of Public Health, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Licensure and Regulation.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Omaha

    • Nebraska partially taxes social security income, but fully taxes retirement savings account withdrawals and pensions. Seniors living in Omaha might find that the state's tax laws result in less money to allocate toward facility expenses.
    • The cost of living in Omaha is 94.9, slightly lower than the U.S. average of 100, which might be good news for seniors hoping to move to a facility in the area.
    • Medicaid-based transportation is available to help seniors get around the city. It's a curb-to-curb service that can help with getting to appointments and running errands.
    • Omaha has a violent crime rate of 33.9 and a property crime rate of 56.6, both higher than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4. Although these crime rates are high, seniors in care are protected by security systems, alarms and cameras.
    • Omaha weather is wet with rainfalls of 32 inches per year and annual snowfalls of 30 inches. Families might want to ask facility staff about safety measures in place to protect seniors from the elements in harsh weather conditions.
    • Omaha has good air quality. On a scale where 100 represents the areas with the cleanest air, Omaha ranks in at 62, slightly higher than the U.S. average of 58. Seniors with respiratory conditions like asthma, COPD and lung cancer might be able to breathe easily in Omaha.
