Home Instead Center for Successful Aging

Successful aging is about enjoying a full life. The Home Instead Center for Successful Aging at the University of Nebraska Medical Center offers this and more.

The center represents a model of care that is unique not only to the Omaha metropolitan area but to the entire mid-western region. Home Instead Center for Successful Aging encompasses the expertise of care providers from across the spectrum including; geriatric medicine, geriatric psychiatry, nursing, pharmacy, exercise science, and whole-person wellness.

Providing education and preventive care is another important component of the center. Caregivers and seniors will find professionals to partner with them in their quest to live a full and successful life. Equally important are the educational opportunities it provides to UNMC students, residents, and the community. The center includes research in its care mission with a focus on promoting independence and aging in place.

The center came to fruition in 2013 thanks in large part to the generous donations from the founders of Home Instead Senior Care, Paul and Lori Hogan, UNMC faculty alumni, Dr. Robert Grissom, and his wife Virginia Grissom, as well as Ramona and Deryl F. Hamann.

Patient Care is provided through UNMC's primary clinical partner, Nebraska Medicine, via the  Geriatric Medicine Clinic and the Geriatric Psychiatry Clinic.
