Paul’s Story

Paul, a happily-single bachelor his whole life, lived independently at home well into his 80s. But with no family members nearby, small signs of age began to create larger challenges.

With the help of a Tabitha social worker, Paul recognized the upkeep of his home was something he no longer enjoyed nor was able to do as well as he once did. A Tabitha Continuum Navigator worked with Paul to begin in-home support services providing light housecleaning and companionship. Grateful for the help, Paul welcomed additional support from Tabitha later that year to assist with medication management, particularly his insulin regimen for diabetes treatment.

When a Tabitha team member arrived at Paul’s home one day to find him life-threateningly dehydrated and weak, Paul was immediately hospitalized, where he recovered for several weeks. Back home, Tabitha again was there for Paul with increased services including Meals on Wheels, and bathing and hygiene assistance in addition to continued medication management and housekeeping services.

As his health declined, Paul’s relatives leaned more and more on Tabitha to help monitor Paul’s condition and needs, and to recommend and provide services to meet those needs.

“We got a call from Tabitha telling us Uncle Paul wasn’t doing so well,” said Paul’s niece, Margie. “We knew his health had declined, but living an hour down the road we weren’t able to check on him daily. Tabitha helped us realize at that point that Uncle Paul needed more help, and we knew we could trust the advice of the people who had been giving him such reliable, wonderful care.

“At first we worried about his acceptance of the situation, but working with Tabitha was easy, and the staff was so reassuring both for us and for Uncle Paul.”

Soon after, with his and his family’s blessing, Paul made his new home at Tabitha Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Lincoln.

“When I look at him now, he seems happier, cleaner and more alert than I can remember seeing him in a long time,” Margie said. “He’s a wonderful, caring man who always tried to do whatever he could for other human beings in his life. I’m glad he is cared for now by the same kind of people he always was to others.”

Why Tabitha

Recovery and Rehabilitation Care

Skilled nursing and rehabilitation care is provided when a person needs nursing or rehabilitation experts to manage, observe and evaluate recovery care. Often, seniors come to Tabitha following a surgery or hospital stay. Rehabilitative and recuperative therapy is given for a short period of time and may be paid for privately or by individual insurance plans, Medicare or Medicaid (based on coverage and qualifications).

All short-term residents at Tabitha Nursing and Rehabilitation Center enjoy complimentary transportation to Tabitha from the hospital (Tabitha is conveniently located within minutes of Lincoln hospitals), customized continuum navigation for an individual’s care planning, rehabilitative care plans initiated within 24-hours of admission and modern, private-occupancy rooms.

Long-Term Care

Long-term care is a more permanent living option for those with chronic illness or disability. An experienced nursing team aids in the tasks of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, dining and other personal care. Costs of services are paid for either privately or by long-term care insurance plans, Medicare or Medicaid (based on coverage and qualifications).

Long-term care residents at Tabitha receive the benefits of our continuum navigation and social services, available physician services, beauty/barber shop services for an additional fee, and engaging daily activities ranging from games and social groups to musical performances, community outings and more.
