If your loved one is diagnosed with a cognitive impairment, Hillcrest offers innovative class memory care and support services near Omaha.

The Grand Lodge at Hillcrest Country Estates partners with the Omaha Montessori High School, offering Nebraska’s first all-day eldercare Montessori learning program.

During a school session, “class” is conducted at the Hillcrest community every Friday, integrating students in grades 7 through 12 with cognitively-impaired residents under the guidance of Montessori instructors. In 2014, the students, alongside Hillcrest’s experts, conducted an evidence-based study on this type of program, which produced positive results for those with dementia. For more details on the study, view the presentation.
