Pets - cats and dogs - are among the many things left behind when seniors move to nursing homes. Do you have an incredibly friendly, calm and attention seeking dog or cat or even a bunny? Thought about getting your animal pet therapy certified but never knew how? Endless Journey will help you get your animal through the process so that you can provide much needed joy to our patients who miss their animals.

About Endless Journey

Location:

10831 Old Mill Road, Omaha, NE 68154, US

Mission Statement

The Endless Journey hospice experience will encompass the holistic philosophy in that the client and their family will be nourished physically, emotionally and spiritually as they prepare for the end of life and beyond.

Description

Endless Journey Hospice LLC is an independent, locally owned and operated hospice established in Omaha to serve Northeast Nebraska with an alternative for end of life care unlike those currently offered by the medical field. The primary objective is to empower clients and the community through education and to offer holistic interventions to provide comfort and dignity throughout the dying process. Endless Journey embraces the client and their loved ones as they approach the exhaustion of effective aggressive treatment by offering emotional support and education related to disease process and treatment options to improve quality of life. Like all hospices, we provide services to clients wherever they live. This is provided through the traditional hospice team of nurses, health aids, chaplains, social workers, and volunteers in addition to a broad array of holistic providers and a full-time nutritionist.
