Omega: Staying Connected in Later Life

Omega is an end of life charity working hard to raise standards in end of life care by supporting caregivers looking after someone with a terminal illness, people who are themselves end of life, and those who have been bereaved. We prioritise those aged over 75 and still caring or bereaved.

We understand the loneliness and social isolation that arises as a result of demanding caregiving duties, loss and age, and we are committed to helping caregivers and the bereaved stay connected in later life. About us >>
