Provide Meaningful Scientific Research and Training to the Medical Community
The Omega Society offers FREE cremation through the donation of a decedent’s body to science for educational and medical research. We are pleased to be working with the leading fully accredited full body donation organization, Science Care, located in Long Beach, CA.
Many people may not even realize that the option exists to donate a body to science when a loved one passes away.
And, they may not realize that, if approved, the entire cost of the cremation is paid for by Science Care and is FREE to the family.
And, unlike other donation to science providers, the process takes only a few weeks and you can actually have the cremated remains back in your care to arrange for a final disposition of your choice.
How It Works
Those on hospice can be pre-approved through Science Care’s Hope Program. Or, after the passing, Science Care can be contacted through The Omega Society to obtain approval and clearance for donation. Either way, it is important to inform Science Care that you are working with The Omega Society.
At the time of passing, The Omega Society should be called first. We will arrange to have your loved one picked up from the place of death and brought to our facility.
Simply let us know at the time of passing that your loved one has been pre-approved by Science Care, or that you are interested in donating to Science Care. The Omega Society will assist with the coordination, and the eventual transport to Science Care, once approval has been obtained.
The Omega Society will handle the transportation of your loved one back to The Omega Society once the donation process is completed, and the cremation will ultimately take place— on site— at our state-of-the-art crematory.
After death has occurred, and your loved one is on our care, you will have the comfort of having trained Omega counselors available to you—either by phone or in person— to help you with the donation process, as well as final arrangement details. Using The Omega Society also allows the family to have additional services available to them which Science Care cannot offer.
Omega Society will handle the signing, and filing of the permit and death certificate and will place an order for death certificates for you. Omega can arrange for a private ID viewing, or a witnessed cremation, provide a selection of upgraded urns and keepsakes, arrange for a Private Charter to witness the scattering at sea, or an un-witnessed sea scattering with certificate. None of these options are offered by Science Care. Science Care will cover the cost of shipping cremated remains to anywhere in the US.
Should your loved one not be approved for donation, your family will not have to struggle to look for a cremation provider to handle the cremation. Your loved one will already be in our care, at the least expensive and #1 cremation provider in Southern California.
The donation of a loved one to science is a gift to all of us. Through research and practice, your gift allows for the advancement of medical technology, which benefits all of mankind.
