LIVE THE GOOD LIFE AT HOMESTEAD HOUSE
Since the day our doors opened in July of 1997, Homestead House has been providing the wonderful people of Beatrice, Nebraska, with a caring atmosphere, an active community, and a comfortable life. From the programs to the amenities, our respect for each resident’s individuality is at the center of all that we do. We would love for you to visit us with your family and loved ones and see for yourself!
FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND YOU
Whether we’re winning awards for our quality of care or our quality of parade in the Homestead Days Parade, everyone at Homestead House is always putting their best foot forward. Residents don’t do anything halfway, and that includes barbeques in the courtyard, ice cream socials, the holiday door decorating contest, and so many more fun activities. Residents and their families often tell us that they knew they belonged here when they made their first visit.
ENJOY HISTORIC BEATRICE
Homestead House is proud to be part of a community so rich in history. Beatrice was founded on the banks of the Big Blue River, where the railroad, farming, and local businesses thrived. Daniel Freeman, the city’s first homesteader, filed his application with the Land Office at Brownville only a few minutes into the new year on January 1, 1863. Today, Beatrice offers a variety of attractions for all ages. Many visitors enjoy walking the prairie trails at Homestead National Monument and learning about the original homesteaders, and the beautifully manicured city parks are the perfect place to camp, picnic, and play. Beatrice is also known for its progressive schools for all ages, as the home to Grandma’s Fruitcake, for the ever-popular Beatrice Speedway, and for hosting the Governor’s Shotgun Blast every fall. We drive groups to local markets, restaurants, and attractions in downtown Beatrice, as well as doctor visits. Have a request? We are more than happy to take you wherever you need or want to go—just ask!
CARE THAT’S ALWAYS THERE
Our Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that licensed nursing staff is available 24 hours a day. Prior to moving in, we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. We are here to help with medication reminders, special diet plans, shower assistance, dressing assistance, and more as needed. Our residents enjoy clinical services in-house with visits from physician’s assistants, chiropractors, and podiatrists. Our care team, which is headed by our Assisted Living Director Danielle Quackenbush, RN, receives extensive ongoing training and strives to anticipate needs and preferences. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.
WORRY-FREE LIFESTYLE WITH JUST A SIMPLE LEASE
While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease.
Our homey community boasts 40 modern apartments as studios, deluxe studios, and one-bedrooms. All apartments at Homestead House are on the ground level, for ease of access.
Dining at Homestead House
Live Well, Dine Well
Allow our professionally trained service staff to present you with delicious dishes made from locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Senior Lifestyle, dining is an integral part of the resident experience, and we do everything we can to delight you with a personalized dining experience.
Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, favorite recipes or foods, and unless otherwise specified by state regulations we offer therapeutic diets such as reduced concentrated sweets, mechanical soft and purée. Residents can select healthy, locally sourced options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites. And we always encourage residents and relatives to make special arrangements when expecting a family visit!

Testimonials for Homestead House
“When I get very old, and I can’t take care of myself, maybe it makes sense to cut out of the big city and be in a place where you are like family, cared for by neighbors and friends. My grandparents (Oma & Opa) both spent their last years here, and god bless the staff, who remembered who they were in their lives, my Oma, a german teacher, my Opa, a farmer, lumber yard man, and insurance salesman, and never forgot that they were wonderful people, with full lives, and families who loved them. Thank you, Homestead House. You are what all other assisted living spots would like to live up to.”
