Do you love people but don't like to make small talk? IIntroverts and quiet types are the perfect volunteers for our Sit Beside Me program as well as our patients who are lonely but just want people who are willing to sit and people watch with them. Being comfortable with silence is a key gift in a hospice volunteer! If you would like to put your depth of soul in the service of helping others, this is your opportunity! We utilize volunteers to sit quietly beside a patient who may be in their last hours to days - checking for signs of discomfort, reading scripture, making sure there is music or other soothing elements in the room. Training is provided. We can use these volunteers morning, noon, night and weekends.

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.
Endless Journey Hospice LLC is an independent, locally owned and operated hospice established in Omaha to serve the Omaha and Lincoln areas 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.
