Bringing the Best in Hospice Care to Alabama
With offices in Alabaster and Fultondale at the center of our hospice service area, VITAS Healthcare provides quality care for seriously ill Alabama hospice patients and their families in 10 counties, from Tuscaloosa to Coosa to Blount.
Hospice Care at Home in Alabama
Because hospice is a way of caring for the terminally ill, not a place, VITAS hospice teams travel the area, bringing comfort care and dignity near the end of life to patients at home or in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. A dedicated team of hospice workers, including a registered nurse, physician, hospice aide, social worker, chaplain, bereavement manager and community volunteer, bring their expertise and dedication to the patient’s bedside.
If patients need more intensive care, VITAS provides shifts of continuous care in the home for up to 24 hours a day, and has arrangements with local hospitals to provide inpatient care when necessary.
