Vitas Innovative Hospice Care
When medical treatments can no longer cure a disease, our 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. We introduce 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 at the end of their lives. We offer a range of hospice care services, including music therapy and pet visits. To learn more, find your local VITAS hospice provider. 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.
