Join the Omega Home Network
The Omega Home Network facilitates a grassroots effort to spread the model and educate communities about living well through dying. Formerly known as the Social Hospice Network, we changed our name to embrace the word Omega and its symbolism as the last, best, or final nature of something. The Omega Home Network unites us, sharing common values and structure.
- Association with a proven, successful model
