Several months ago, my husband was cared for by a VITAS hospice team. Our nurses were absolutely incredible. The compassion and care they showed him will stay in my mind forever. The hospice care team truly made a difference in how we were able to cope during the worst period in our lives. That compassion extended to the rest of the family as well. From our main nurse to every single aide that came in while he was in crisis care, my children and I all felt cared about. I can't even explain how much it meant in that terrible time to know he was getting the best possible care.
Even now, though he's been gone for some time, they continue to check in with us and offer different grief services.
