We are a concept of care
Alpha Omega Hospice is not a place, but a concept of care that allows your loved one to remain in their home setting: this includes nursing homes, hospitals and residential settings, but most often takes place in the home.
Our emphasis is quality of life
We focus on your loved one’s quality of life. Alpha Omega Hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, emotional and spiritual support. Our care is based on the needs and wishes of each patient and their family. We focus on quality of life.
How do we do this?
Our team develops a care plan to meet each individual’s specific needs. Members of our staff make regular visits to assess your loved one and provide additional care or services related to the hospice diagnosis. We are always on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We are always available.
Our emphasis is family
When a patient is nearing the end of his or her disease course, it often becomes a priority to focus on comfort rather than to continue searching for and trying curative treatments. Although this can be a difficult time for anyone to experience, Alpha Omega Hospice is here to help during the end-stage of a friend or family member’s illness.
Our hospice team focuses on making sure that our patients have the highest quality of living possible in their final stage of life. We do this by ensuring that their pain levels are low to non-existent so that they can live out the rest of their lives comfortably. Along with pain control management, we provide emotional support and spiritual support as needed.
Our medical team puts a huge emphasis on family. We know that our patients are more than just patients; they are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and more to their family members. Alpha Omega Hospice treats every patient on an individual basis, according to the patient’s wishes along with the wants, needs and requests of the patient’s family.
As we support your loved one through end-stage illness, our team offers the specific medical care and equipment that are required as per the diagnosis made by the patient’s physician. Our hospice teams are medically directed and are made up of doctors, nurses, nurse assistants, social workers, volunteers and chaplains. Alpha Omega Hospice also assists family members and friends of the patient as you say goodbye and mourn the loss of your loved one.
