About Omega Homes

Through passionate grassroots efforts, community homes for dying people offer places of warmth and loving care for people who can no longer remain in their own homes during the last months of life.

End-of-life homes are known informally and collectively by many different names: Comfort Care Homes, Homes for the Dying, and Social Model Hospice Homes. Varying in size, appearance, and internal policies, and located in multiple states across the country, we share a common foundation and philosophy.

Our homes reflect the spirit of the people and the culture of the communities that come together to create and sustain us.

Community-supported homes for end-of-life care are:

  • special places to live and be cared for during the last months of life
  • advocates for the relief of suffering; neither prolonging nor hastening death
  • inclusive and open to all people, according to local regulations
  • fundamentally grass-roots in nature
  • raised by the community and proudly belong to the community
  • independent and freestanding
  • non-profit organizations
  • funded by community and family support
  • not government or third-party funded
  • staffed by paid caregivers and volunteers who are considered “extended family”
  • in a collaborative working relationship with the resident’s hospice/medical care provider
  • complementary and unique to what already exists in the community
  • not a hospital, nursing home, hospice, or medical facility
  • simply “home and family” and carry the heart of everything that means
