Cove House and Harbor House
The next generation in innovative skilled nursing and long-term care, Tabitha Residences—Cove House and Harbor House are designed and furnished with all of the comforts of home. Residents, their families and friends are encouraged to spend time together creating memories while compassionate, 24-hour nursing and caregiving teams provide assistance with activities of daily living. In addition, they offer more advanced, personalized levels of care based on each resident’s needs and goals.
Here at the intersection of modern living and nostalgic charm, the days of rigid schedules and sterile, white walls are gone. At Cove and Harbor House, residents are supported to live lives of independence and individuality, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. Those who call these communities home have the ultimate freedom of choice to live the life they love.
Cove and Harbor Houses’ non-traditional, family-centered, lifestyle-focused approach was inspired by Tabitha’s pioneering work to de-institutionalize long-term care in the state of Nebraska.
Cove House and Harbor House are located lakeside in south Lincoln's beautiful Williamsburg neighborhood.

Bob came to live with his daughter, Mary, and her family four years after his wife died and six months after he was diagnosed with a progressive illness. The family had always taken care of each other, but after 18 months with Mary’s family, Bob’s illness reached a point where he could no longer be safely cared for in the family home. Mary was worried that being too far away—even across town—would cause her dad to feel isolated and alone.
Once they discovered Cove House, Mary and her dad knew the future was still bright. With professional, 24/7 caregiving and a family-home environment just down the road from Mary’s south Lincoln home, Bob is thriving in the company of his new friends and fellow armed forces veterans, who daily swap war stories and nostalgic memories of a time gone by. Mary, her husband and kids visit several times weekly, and Bob even joins the family every Sunday night for dinner at their home.
Progressive communities like Tabitha Residences have been lauded in national research findings that report drastically improved clinical outcomes when compared with traditional skilled nursing, along with greatly reduced rates of common social/emotional side effects of aging, such as loneliness and depression. Goals are a focus here. Residents are encouraged to set them, and staff are motivated to help see them reached. Working together, it’s no wonder this kind of environment forms the baseline for a quality of life that’s second-to-none in long-term care. Plus, Cove House recently received a five-star perfect rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
