If hospice patients need care beyond what can be provided at home, the VITAS inpatient hospice unit is designed to provide necessary and appropriate care. The staff-physician, registered nurse, social worker, chaplain, volunteer, bereavement specialist, team manager-focus on bringing your symptoms under control with the goal of getting you back to where you want to be-in the comfort of your own home-as soon as possible.
Each VITAS inpatient unit provides a calm, home-like atmosphere. Visits from family, friends and pets are welcome and unrestricted. There are provisions for family members to spend the night or warm up a home-cooked meal. Each unit provides amenities such as family room, kitchenette and quiet room for prayer, meditation or quiet conversation.
