Hospice at Home
When everything is changing, VITAS helps things stay familiar. We help patients stay home whether home is a private residence, assisted living or long term care facility. VITAS also provides general inpatient hospice care at contracted hospitals when care at home is not enough. We coordinate with patients’ personal physicians so patients can keep the doctors they know and trust. No matter where care takes place, we work closely with caregivers, spiritual advisors, families and friends to ensure patients’ optimal well-being.
Alternative Comfort Care
VITAS offers integrated services such as massage therapy, music therapy, reiki and Paw Pals® pet visits.
VITAS brings hospice education and resources to our communities, including traditionally underserved populations. VITAS has dedicated veteran specialists who work closely with our veteran patients to assist with benefits and provide recognition and appreciation on military and patriotic holidays.
