I visited this facility
My Aunt stayed at the VITAS hospice at the end of her life. When she entered, we were all a little worried because we had heard some bad stories about nursing homes and assisted living facilities. I have had some friends who had their grandparents get ignored in nursing home facilities. From the moment I stepped in the building at VITAS to visit her, my opinions greatly changed. They had the nicest staff I had ever met at any home or hospital. They were attentive and listened to anything my Aunt or any of her family had to say. Most of the time I have felt that when a family member want to talk to a doctor or nurse at other facilities, they seemed kind of annoyed and try to rush the conversation. When one of us would try to talk to a staff member at VITAS they would actually sit down with you and talk about anything you wanted. And when the conversation about the patient was over, they would often ask how the family was doing and if there was anything they could do for us or for my Aunt. They just made her and us feel very at home. I think this was the absolute best place for her to be. Sadly, my Aunt recently passed away there. When she died, all of the staff on duty lined the hallway and bowed their heads in tribute to my Aunt. This was an excellent facility in every sense of the word.
