Endless Journey

Image_201902260739

Endless Journey has immediate need for 2-3 volunteers in the Nebraska City and larger Otoe/Cass County area to serve our growing patient population in the community. We serve patients in nursing homes, assisted living, and private homes. Volunteers serve as friendly companions playing cards, playing music, reading scripture, etc. Volunteers are sometimes also needed to provide a 2-3 hour break for a family member caring for their loved one at home. Volunteers do not provide medical care, simply peace of mind while the loved one is away from home.

Volunteers make a simple but immeasurable contribution to the quality of life of our patients and their families at this most difficult time of their lives. All training provided. Whether you are a "people person" or a much more reserved introvert, your presence is a healing one for all involved.

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 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.
