Care Services

At VITAS we care for patients with an interdisciplinary team comprising a nurse, physician, aide, social worker and chaplain. Other clinical professionals, from a music therapist to trained volunteer, may work with the team to help meet the emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and their family. Our teams design personalized care plans to ensure comfort, dignity and quality of life.

Most of the time, hospice care is brought to the patient at home, since home is where most seriously ill people want to be: in familiar surroundings with familiar routines and familiar faces.
