Medicaid & Long-Term Care
The State Unit on Aging oversees funding to help Nebraskans stay in their homes. These funding sources include the Older Americans Act, the Nebraska Community Aging Services Act and the Aging & Disability Resource Center Act.

Area Agencies on Aging and other providers deliver a wide range of services to the community. These services promote health, safety and long-term independence. Services may be available to you if you are an older adult, a person with a disability or a caregiver.

 May is Older Americans Month

​May is Older Americans Month. Please join us in recognizing older persons in our communities.

The 2019 theme, Connect, Create, Contribute, encourages older adults and their communities to:

  • Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation.
  • Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.
  • Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.
