Bringing the Best in Hospice and Palliative Care to Houston
VITAS Healthcare provides end-of-life and palliative care for adult and pediatric patients with life-limiting illnesses in the greater Houston area, and in Montgomery County.
We work with patients and families to provide comfort and preserve dignity in the face of terminal illness. Explore this site to find out more about our comprehensive hospice services, including pain and symptom management, emotional and spiritual support for patients and bereavement support for families.
Hospice at Home
When everything is changing, VITAS helps things stay familiar. We help patients stay at home and in Houston 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.
VITAS is fully accredited by The Joint Commission to provide safe and effective end-of-life care of the highest quality. We are also commissioned by another higher authority, the National Institute for Jewish Hospice, to provide culturally sensitive care that meets the specific belief systems of Orthodox, Conservative, Reformed and secular Jews. We have whole teams that speak Spanish and understand Hispanic customs. We offer specialized teams to care for military veterans, and we work with faith leaders to bring hospice to their parishioners.
