VITAS Healthcare serves people with serious illnesses. Vitas hospice care and palliative services provide comfort to patients and preserve dignity in the face of terminal illness.
When medical treatments can no longer cure a disease, the Vitas interdisciplinary team of hospice care professionals still can do a great deal to control pain, reduce anxiety and offer needed spiritual and emotional support to patients and their families. Vitas introduces gradual, non-crisis transitions from curative care to hospice care. There is time to talk, to try treatments and therapies, and to ensure comfort and dignity.
Hospice care at VITAS is focused on serving and comforting patients and families as the end of their lives. Vitas offers a range of hospice care services, including music therapy and pet visits. Additionally, VITAS offers bereavement support & grief resources to support loved ones.
What You Should Know About Hospice: VITAS brings hospice care services to the patient’s home, whether a private residence, long term care community or nursing home. If care cannot be managed at home, patients receive inpatient hospice care until symptoms are under control. Telecare responds to patient and family questions 24 hours a day, and can dispatch a team member to the patient’s bedside if necessary
If you or a loved one has a serious illness, palliative care can help. A complement to the medical treatments your doctor is already providing, palliative care helps manage pain, alleviates symptoms to improve quality of life and offers emotional and spiritual support as you deal with difficult medical issues.
