Our Methodology: How We Chose the Best Assisted Living in Lincoln

While there are plenty of great options to choose from in Lincoln, your experience could vary substantially from one community to another. To find the best assisted living communities in Lincoln, we conducted 50 hours of research based on the following criteria:

  • Cost: The cost of assisted living is always an important factor to consider. We try to find communities with a good balance between cost and value. We also consider the varied needs and budgets of seniors. For example, some older adults may be willing to pay more for a “luxury” experience, while others might prefer to save money by choosing a community with simpler accommodations or fewer amenities.
  • Available care: Many assisted living communities offer more than just assisted living care. Generally, we focus our attention on communities that offer more than just assisted living, especially if the community can offer a smooth transition between different levels of care.
  • Reviews: Reviews from residents, family members, and staff can provide great insight into the quality of an assisted living community. We consider dozens of reviews per community to evaluate the advantages and potential drawbacks of each.
  • Amenities: When it comes to amenities, we generally value quality over quantity. That said, it’s often a good sign when a community offers a wide variety of amenities. For this reason, we consider both the diversity and overall quality of amenities offered.
  • Location: Most older adults don’t simply stay at an assisted living all day. There are many opportunities to get out and explore the property or the city. Lincoln, Nebraska has dozens of parks, golf courses, museums, shopping centers, and other attractions that are great for seniors. We consider the proximity of these attractions, as well as the overall convenience of the location when choosing the best assisted living communities.
  • Staff size: We focus our attention on communities that offer high staff-to-resident ratios, often with a maximum of eight residents per caregiver.
