Honestly, Tabitha IS For Everyone

Honestly, Tabitha IS For Everyone

You might not need us now, but when you do—we’re here for you.

By now you have mostly likely heard the new self-depreciating tourism slogan, “Nebraska, honestly it’s not for everyone.” It follows the more glass-half-full catchphrases of “Nebraska Nice” and “The Good Life,” and we could argue they all accurately capture the spirit of the state in one way or another. This new saying has grabbed national attention. Even the late night talk show hosts have poked fun at the stereotypes held by those who’ve never even crossed over our state lines.

Tabitha faces similar preconceived notions of just what it IS and what it DOES. Widely referred to as a ‘nursing home,’ nonprofit Tabitha is so very much more. Just ask one of the thousands of families Tabitha has served in its 130-year history. Your need for  Senior Care may not be today, but when the time comes you can count on Tabitha. We exist to serve you with the best of quality services—for the right reasons, at the right time, at the right place with the right options.
