You Have a Choice for Hospice Care in Milwaukee
Hospice at Home in Milwaukee
When everything is changing, VITAS helps things stay familiar. VITAS cares for seriously ill patients and their families in Milwaukee. VITAS hospice teams visit these patients in their homes, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, while support staff work out of offices in Wauwatosa and Racine. No matter where in Milwaukee hospice care takes place, we coordinate closely with all caregivers, spiritual advisors, families and friends to ensure the patients’ optimal well-being.
Inpatient Hospice Units
VITAS provides Intensive Comfort Care® for patients who require continuous care but prefer to remain at home. When necessary, VITAS has two fully staffed inpatient hospice units, one at The Lutheran Home in Wauwatosa, the other at Ruth Hospice House in West Allis.
Alternative Comfort Care
The goal at VITAS is individual care determined by the goals of the patient. Specialty care may be brought to the bedside by a music therapist or a Paw Pal visit, as needed. With our recognition from the We Honor Veterans program, soldiers in Southeastern Wisconsin get the support they deserve near the end of life.
