Community 360
 

Community-360 is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to serving frail institutionalized older adults living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Many of them suffer severe depression as they experience abandonment and loneliness. We recruit and train people to be "family" and advocates for them. We serve them regardless of their religion, race, ethnicity, gender. or sexual orientation. (c) 2012 Community-360.

What We Do
At this time, Community-360º has over 200 volunteers of its own in 40 facilities throughout Omaha and Council Bluffs. These volunteers provide one-on-one companionship to frail, institutionalized older adults, and to the staff.

Community-360º accepts only the finest of volunteers to serve as companions to this vulnerable group. In fact, we look to see if our applicant understand five key concepts before we allow them entrance into our training program. These are:
  • Community
  • Selflessness
  • Presence
  • Compassion
  • Commitment
If we find individuals who value these concepts we feel as if we have found great potential for people who will make quality volunteers in the long-term care community.


We Product Training Materials
At Community-360º we create training materials that assist in the production of better, more compassionate volunteers. These materials, combined with the methodology used, encourages the volunteer and gives each volunteer the education needed to enter the long-term care facility and hit the ground running.

Our materials are comprehensive, using state-of-the-art methods and employing all four learning styles to keep the student engaged throughout the training process.


We Produce Opportunities for the Community

Community-360º offers opportunities for the community to get involved in the case for the frail, institutionalized older adult.   Community-360º does everything in its power to collaborate with as many institutions as possible to gain a greater grasp of the community.

Therefore, Community-360º collaborates with colleges, high schools, churches and many other organizations to get people involved.

We want people to see what is happening inside of nursing homes and we want people to join our cause.

Every year Community-360º promotes several events to keep the community engaged and keep frail, institutionalized older adults feeling significant.

One such event is Christmas in Our Hearts.

This event was created particularly with the frail, institutionalized older adult in mind. However, without community involvement, this event simply cannot happen.

Annually, Christmas in Our Hearts is held at the Doubletree in Downtown Omaha. During this afternoon we pamper these seniors with a time of beautiful Christmas music and turn the Grand Ballroom into a Winter Wonderland.


We Offer Each a Chance to Get Involved

At Community-360º we offer individuals everywhere a chance to get involved in the lives of the frail, institutionalized older adult. If you would like to get involved with Community-360º, please feel free to fill out the Contact Form.
