Colonial Acres Nursing Home

Colonial Acres Nursing Home of Humboldt, Nebraska opened their doors in July of 1999. Through the work of the Humboldt City Council and a newly formed Colonial Acres Board of Directors, a dream was built. It began as a 66 bed facility and is still city owned. In 1993, an addition was added consisting of a double garage, shop, storage are, rehabilitation room, activity/kitchen and several offices. One wing was converted to assisted living rooms in 2000. This wing consists of 14 rooms that can house 18 residents. The nursing home went to a 49 bed facility at this time. A courtyard renovation came about in 2006 and consists of a three tiered fountain, water fall, pond and many flower beds. It is very accessible for residents who enjoy spending many hours relaxing in the fresh air.

To meet the needs of not only the residents, but also the community, the rehabilitation room is also used for Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. The exercise equipment can be utilized by the general public after normal hours.

Colonial Acres of Humboldt is currently managed by Rural Health Development and five-person Board of Directors appointed by the Humboldt Mayor and City Council.

In July of 2009, an Open House to celebrate our 40th Anniversary was held with former city councilmen and nursing home board members attending, to tell how this facility came about. A second ribbon cutting was held. Cutting the ribbon was a member of the 1969 board and a member from the 2009 board. They were assisted by current Administrator, Mary Kent and a staff member who has been employed for the entire 40 years of operation.

Recent improvements have been to update the sprinkler system, new lobby flooring and the addition of electronic charting. We are currently managed by Rural Health Development and five members appointed by the Humboldt Mayor and City Council.
