Admission Instructions for Families

A phone call or visit to Omega House prior to admission starts the process. We accept referrals directly from hospice agencies, doctors and hospitals. If you are not already affiliated with a hospice agency, we suggest that you check with your physician in order to start the process. Each resident must be working with a hospice agency.

The resident and their representative will be contacted by Omega House staff to gather any further information needed and to assure that we can meet the needs of you and your family before a decision is reached.
