Tabitha Hospice provides hope through pain management and emotional and spiritual support, so people can live their final months in comfort and according to their wishes. By aging in place through hospice care, Seniors are able to live an average of 29 days longer than without such care.

Our services are provided wherever your loved one lives—including a private residence or independent, assisted or long-term care living communities—so most are able to spend their last moments at home, rather than a hospital.

Through a team approach that combines expert medical care, around-the-clock communication and consultation, and loving assistance and companionship, Tabitha is with you every step of the way.

The Tabitha Difference

The Most Experienced Hospice Care Provider in Nebraska

A faith-based Nebraska nonprofit, Tabitha is a pioneer in hospice care. As the longest-serving hospice program in the state, Tabitha has been providing end-of-life care since 1979.

Exceptional, Compassionate Care

Tabitha Hospice puts people first with purpose in mind, serving for all the right reasons. Our mission—to serve all members of the community regardless of their ability to pay—is rooted in all we do.

We’re here for you whenever, wherever and however you need.

Around-the-Clock Support

With dedicated, on-call night and weekend caregivers, you have access to nurses who will come to you if the need arises, whenever the need arises. Our night and weekend hospice team members allow your assigned nurse case manager time to rest and refresh, enabling them to provide the best possible care to you or your loved one.

Local Volunteers Invested in the Community

Working side-by-side with other members of the Tabitha Hospice team, our volunteers are rooted in the communities in which they serve—providing assistance through companionship, listening, respite care and help with everyday tasks.

Many of our volunteers have become longtime friends of the families they serve.

Bereavement Team to Walk Beside You Through Your Grief Journey

We understand loss affects each person differently. Our team of experts comfort and support you throughout the journey with personalized education, counseling and literature.

Our bereavement support program is available for all loved ones for 18 months following hospice care, and is administered by coordinators dedicated to serving their individual communities. Tabitha’s services include grief support groups, volunteer visits, supportive resources and mailings, and individual and family counseling.
