Tabitha, your answer for Elder Care, recently hosted its fourth-annual summer carnival, welcoming residents, loved ones, neighbors and friends to celebrate summer with an evening of games, food and entertainment. The event brought in hundreds to Tabitha’s Green House® neighborhood, located just north of the organization’s central Lincoln main campus.

Coordinated by Green House staff and supported by the help of volunteers from across Tabitha’s complete continuum of care, guests of all ages gathered to play on a perfect night of mild temps and a hint of summer breeze.

Thrivent Financial’s Action Team project provided generous financial support to supplement a picnic-style dinner for those in attendance.

Tabitha’s four Green House homes, along with south Lincoln’s Tabitha at The Landing and a new community coming soon to the Williamsburg neighborhood, are a departure from traditional long-term care and exist to provide a de-institutionalized option that accommodates the unique lifestyle preferences of every resident. Elders in these innovative communities enjoy life on their own terms while receiving compassionate skilled nursing care. These residential-style homes offer a unique and living community environment that supports Tabitha’s mission by promoting the individuality and dignity of Elders no longer able to stay in their own homes.

As a nonprofit organization serving 28 Nebraska counties, Tabitha’s love embraces a society where everyone is valued and empowered to live life to the fullest, with compassionate at-home support, innovative living communities, exceptional rehabilitation, health care and hospice services.
