VITAS Brings Hospice Home in the Greater St. Louis Area
Most people nearing the end of life want to remain in the comfort of home surrounded by familiar faces. VITAS has the resources and the expertise to help patients stay at home as long as possible with offices in St. Louis, Fairview Heights and Festus that serve the Greater St. Louis area and the counties of Franklin, Jefferson, St. Charles, St. Francois, St. Louis, St. Genevieve and Washington.
Hospice at Home
When everything is changing, VITAS helps things stay familiar. We help patients stay home and in the Greater St. Louis area whenever possible—whether home is a private residence, an assisted living or long term care facility, or even a hospital room. We coordinate with patients’ personal physicians, so patients keep the doctors they know and trust. No matter where care takes place, we coordinate closely with all caregivers, spiritual advisors, families and friends to ensure the patients’ optimal well-being.
Alternative Comfort Care
VITAS offers palliative care services such as therapeutic massage, reiki, Paw Pals® pet visits, and music therapy.
VITAS brings hospice education and resources to traditionally underserved segments of the community in St. Louis. Dedicated veteran liaisons work with veterans who are VITAS patients, helping obtain benefits when eligible.
