VITAS Suites at Carlton Shores

1350 S. Nova Road

Daytona Beach, FL 32114

We all want to be home when we’re ill. When that’s not possible, VITAS Suites at Carlton Shores Health and Rehabilitation Center is a home away from home for patients near the end of life and their families.

The VITAS hospice team takes the time to get to know patients and their families. The medical director makes daily rounds and a nurse, hospice aide, chaplain, social worker, volunteer and supportive ancillary services are provided according to the patient’s plan of care.
