Investment in programs that offer specialized health and wellness services to address the unique needs of senior citizens.
Our Senior Center program provides a safe and welcoming environment that mitigates isolation, improves socialization and provides programming and activities that are empowering to low-income senior adults, affirming their decision to remain in their neighborhood and in their own homes.
The Health and medical Equipment Loan Program (H.E.L.P.) provides, at nominal cost to the client, refurbished, durable medical equipment, such as wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds, blood pressure monitors and other medical items. Men, women, veterans, seniors, individuals who are chronically or temporarily ill, individuals with mobility issues, and low- or no-income individuals in the metropolitan area, who may not have the means to purchase those items through retail outlets, can access this equipment at HELP Adult Services.
Jewish Senior Outreach (JSO) provides Geriatric case management to the Omaha (and surrounding area) Jewish Community. Our mission is to provide professional and financial support to those in need. The majority of clients are living alone, some shut-ins, and need care and attention to stay safe. This group is made up of older adults age 56 -103. They come from a pool of very low income struggling to get by to those that might be more financially stable but are in need of professional attention.
The Children & Family Center is a one-stop neighborhood resource with a holistic approach to service delivery for at-risk teens, young parents, and grandparents raising grandchildren to step from poverty into self-sufficiency. An array of evidence-based programming and promising practices emphasize strategic interconnected services.
In order to maintain a healthy and independent quality of life, the Heartland Family Service Senior Center provides older adults, 55 years of age and older, with a safe and accepting place where they can eat a hot meal and participate in a variety of stimulating, entertaining and social activities. The purpose of the program is to improve the psychological, physical, and social functioning of seniors – supporting their ability to live independently – by providing various activities and services.
Senior Wellness includes four main components: Congregate Meal Program, Fitness, Assessments and Social/Educational Programs.
