Facility Information:

Avamere
at Lexington in Nebraska’s heartland is a special place. This senior living community features 76 rooms and offers independent and assisted living and respite care services. Amenities include 24-hour staff, life enrichment programs, and an extensive activities calendar. They’ve even thrown a prom for their residents with local high school students!

The highlight of all these activities, though, is when Jet the Therapy Horse stops by for a visit. Jet frequently visits the residents, and in fact, his “grandma” is a resident. Read more about his
visits here or watch this video on Facebook.
