Death is not easy.
We live in a death-denying culture; death is mostly avoided as a topic. Talking about death openly gives us the opportunity to share our worries, fears, and wishes. As we become more comfortable discussing dying, we will find it’s easier for us to embrace end-of-life care.
Hospice House is committed to shifting the focus from fear to acceptance by addressing the very essence of death: it is normal and natural. We are here to provide empowered end-of-life experiences; you can die on your own terms, in comfort, and supported in your decisions.
We prioritize you and your family’s wishes above all else. As Omaha’s expert in hospice care, we lead the community-wide conversation about the importance of a dignified, rich, and empowered end-of-life experience.
Join our mission of providing comfortable, dignified, and rich end-of-life experiences.
