Hello Nebraska!


CareAvailability site expands into Nebraska to help families navigate care and senior housing options.

CareAvailability is proud to announce its expansion into Nebraska, further establishing its real-time availability of senior housing options in the United States. This is a new industry standard, delivering an easy one stop option for families and caregivers to navigate all levels of senior care. CareAvailability provides the real-time reporting of availability for senior care up to the minute at provider locations.

The site first launched in Oregon during the COVID pandemic as an effort to help hospitals find care for patients needing to transition out of beds. The site is expanding quickly to bring availability to everyone in the United States. This free resource lists every provider in searchable areas on the site and allows providers to report their availability for free. Families and caregivers can also use the site free of cost to find available levels of care at any time and with no need to provide personal details, championing Family and Patient Freedom of Choice like never before. 

Senior advocates and health professionals rely on CareAvailability to manage comprehensive lists of care options that they can easily monitor and check for active options at their leisure. Families can easily navigate through different levels of care and find available options that they can claim or call as they please. Rather than care providers needing to manage multiple sites at cost, CareAvailability is an extensive resource that does not charge hospitals, physicians, health clinics, social workers or any health team for their services. Medicare Ratings are also included to support Patient Freedom of Choice. 

“We wanted to create a comprehensive database for families and caregivers to easily connect with providers without endless phone calls and uncertainty of available rooms,” CareAvailability’s CEO, Amy Schmidt, says. “We saw the need for this kind of resource during the heart of the pandemic as caregivers tried to discharge patients, and now moving forward this reliable database exists for effective efficiency.” 

Determining the right level of care can be an exhausting process, as many states have different terminology and standards for varying levels of care. The team at CareAvailability has taken extra steps to provide educational articles as well as links to state agencies to help families better understand Long Term Care and aging.

CareAvailability’s expansion to Nebraska means an additional 520 providers are now listed in the database of resources. This includes more than: 280 assisted living communities, 195 skilled nursing facilities, and 80 memory care communities, and more than 90 home health and hospice agencies.

Fun Facts about Nebraska

Nebraska is nicknamed The Cornhusker State. Corn is a leading product from Nebraska, and the nickname refers to the way that corn was commonly harvested, “husking” it by hand, before the invention of husking machinery. Nebraska gets its name from an Indian word meaning “ flat water” after the Platte River that flows through the state. The Platte River valley is home to several historic stops along the Oregon Trail.

The official state motto of Nebraska is “Equality Before the Law.” In 2018, Nebraska tourism officials launched a new, delightfully deadpan slogan, “Honestly, it’s not for everyone.” The commission said, “if you like experiences that are unpretentious and uncomplicated, or if you enjoy creating your own fun or exploring the quirkiness the state has to offer, chances are, you will like it here.”
