About Us  – Hospice Care

Our Story

OnCare was established in 2015, initially focusing on Home Health services, to offer an extra layer of care to residents living at Heritage Communities in Omaha, Nebraska. Since then, two hospice programs have been started and each OnCare service has expanded outside of Heritage Communities to serve other senior living residences and individuals in private homes. OnCare Hospice began accepting patients in Omaha in November of 2021. The location in Peoria, Arizona accepted their first patient in February 2023.

Our Ethos

Hospice is a mission of service. Together, we collaborate with patients, families and communities to promote comfort, dignity, and autonomy through life’s final moments.

Embracing this purpose, we pledge to cultivate an environment of trust, respect, and understanding. We recognize that hospice can be a heavy burden, and we pledge that we will not forget to have fun when appropriate. We are always learning. We actively seek opportunities to enhance our skills and improve our care, both individually and as a team. We strive for growth and progress, knowing that even the smallest steps forward make a significant difference.

Above all, we are united in our devotion to serving those who need us. We approach our sacred calling with humility and grace, fully aware of the power we possess. Our purpose goes beyond providing comfort; it is to transform the way people experience death. With empathy as our guide, we bring solace, joy, and profound moments of peace to those entrusted to our care. Together, we shape a legacy of compassion, leaving an indelible mark on the lives we touch.
