The Day Program

At Ronald McDonald House Charities in Omaha

Coming January 2024! Stay tuned on how our Day Program will support local families seeking medical care for their children.

Social Determinants of Health

80% of health outcomes for a population can be traced back to the social determinants of health (SDOH), including the conditions within the places where people live, learn, work, and play (CareJourney, 2020). As a home to 40 families, with an average stay of 21 days, we have the chance to impact 80 percent of health outcomes, fostering resilience, enhancing overall mental health, and charting a clear path towards improved public health and overall wellbeing. We do so by following the Blue Zone Principles by National Geographic:

  • Move Naturally: Engage in regular physical activity through daily routines and activities, such as walking, gardening, or using active transportation, rather than relying heavily on modern conveniences.
  • Purpose: Cultivate a sense of purpose or “ikigai” in life, which provides a reason to wake up each day and a strong motivation to live a fulfilling and meaningful life.
  • Plant Slant: Consume a plant-based diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and legumes while minimizing the intake of processed foods and meat.
  • 80% Rule: Practice mindful eating and stop eating when you feel about 80% full, as a way to prevent overeating and maintain a healthy caloric intake.
  • Belong: Foster strong social connections and maintain close relationships with family, friends, and community members, promoting a sense of belonging and support.
  • Downshift: Manage stress through relaxation techniques like meditation, napping, prayer, or spending time with loved ones, allowing for moments of calm and reflection.
  • Loved Ones First: Prioritize family and loved ones, making them a central focus in life and ensuring their well-being.
  • Right Tribe: Surround yourself with like-minded individuals who share healthy habits and values, as social networks heavily influence lifestyle choices.
