Hospice Care at Home in Delaware
At VITAS, we bring hospice care to our patients, which means our hospice teams make house calls throughout Delaware.
VITAS creates a customized plan of care for each patient based on his or her goals, abilities and symptoms. We have hospice teams that concentrate on nursing homes and other facilities for the elderly. Other teams go to patients’ homes. Our certified music therapist travels where needed to help patients manage pain, reduce agitation and even communicate through music.
Whether through holistic therapies or the aggressive treatment of pain and other symptoms, our care assures patients comfort and dignity during the last months and weeks of life.
