Bringing the Best in Hospice Care to Virginia
VITAS Healthcare of Northern Virginia serves patients and their families in the four counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William and Loudon. VITAS has a business office in Vienna.
Hospice Care at Home
Because hospice is a way of caring for the terminally ill, not a place, VITAS hospice teams travel the Northern Virginia area, bringing comfort care and dignity near the end of life to patients at home or in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. A dedicated team of hospice workers, including a registered nurse, physician, hospice aide, social worker, chaplain, bereavement manager and community volunteer, bring their expertise and dedication to the patient’s bedside.
Northern Virginia is a region that supports military institutions and military personnel. Many of those families return “home” to northern Virginia when they retire. VITAS prides itself on understanding the unique needs of veterans near the end of life. We train our hospice teams to treat them accordingly. VITAS has achieved the highest rating, a Level-Four status, in the We Honor Veterans program sponsored by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. We are also active in the national Honor Flight program that helps local veterans visit their memorials in Washington D.C.
VITAS believes every hospice patient deserves the customized care that will maximize his or her quality of life.
