Welcome to Heritage Crossings in Geneva, Nebraska, where you will find Family Serving Family everyday. Geneva is the county seat of Fillmore County – home to the Fillmore County Hospital, which has five physicians, a physician’s assistant, a dental clinic and an eye clinic. Geneva is a progressive community with members who strive to keep businesses and the town flourishing.
Heritage Crossings offers skilled nursing care, adult day care, and an assisted living facility, providing a continuum of services for the elderly. Hospice services are also available. Heritage Crossings is licensed for 68 nursing home residents and 24 assisted living residents in 18 apartments.
Our activities are programmed to meet the residents’ needs and requests. We offer van outings to participate in community events outside the facility. We also provide in-house activities which are scheduled seven days a week and also in the evenings! Our activity and social services staffs are cross-trained, so whether it’s a large or small group offering or a 1 to 1 activity, there is always someone available to keep the programs going and to work with our residents to make each day the best it can be. Staff and residents ride side by side on parade floats during Geneva’s parades, and also take walks or wheelchair rides on the spacious, beautifully landscaped campus. It is not unusual to see staff, family, and friends take time out from their busy schedules to bring their pets or children in for the residents to enjoy.
Our staff receives continuing education on the best ways to “clinically” care for residents, but at the same time do so in such a way that each and every resident feels the warmth and love of our dedicated caregivers.
Residents are encouraged to make choices regarding their care and their daily schedules and their families are involved in those decisions, through regularly scheduled care-plans conferences. Families and friends are also involved in the many special programs and in a big resident-family picnic.
Community members, school children, and volunteers are partners in the care we give, as they are in and out of the facility regularly, whether it be for a preschool tea party, to read books, to make crafts and projects, or to play games. All these things add to the quality of life that we provide to our residents. Regularly scheduled Bible Studies, Sunday school, and Worship Services provide the spiritual nurturing that all elders need.
Heritage Crossings provides elder care at its best and our recent state surveys confirm this. Also a special issue on “Aging Well” published in the U.S. News and World Report rated Heritage Crossings as the 3rd best nursing home in Nebraska. Come visit with our elders and their families and find out for yourself that this is the best place to be.
