I can not speak to the entire Company, but that said, I used Vitas team 191 in Sanford Florida for My Wife. After Her third major heart attack in April 2012 She was sent home from the hospital and told She had maybe 6 months left. With the best nurse and nurses aid coming in She made it a year less four days. I could call or text Our nurse 24 / 7 rather than a long wait for call back going thru office staff. The two Ladies were the most caring and loving folks I ever met. There was almost nothing They could not get done for Me. It allowed My Wife to stay with Me till the end at home. Why not 5 stars than, only because the office staff dropped the ball sometimes and did not get messages to nurses aid to not come for bathing next day etc. but it did not have a negative affect on the over all level of care My Wife received. The craziest part of the whole experience was the nurse promised the Wife that She would not pass on Her watch, and as it would be, the nurse was on two weeks vacation when the Wife passed. Could more have been done? I don't know, but all I needed was done with love by two wonderful Ladies. Thank You M. and C.

We hired caregivers from Vitas to take care of my father before he passed away. I wouldn't recommend Vitas because first, I'm still waiting for them to pay bills. Since they haven't paid their bills, the hospital where my father was in put a hold on my father's estate. Second, Vitas hired outside agencies to manage patients. As for the services, if the caregivers came from Vitas itself, the service was good. But if the caregivers were from those outside agencies, the service wasn't satisfactory.

The caregivers were warm and competent. Response time when really needed was VERY poor. My mother suffered for four hours because nobody came though I had made the dire situation clear. They arrived AFTER she died. There's no excuse.

We are very pleased with the service provided by the facility and have no complaints regarding them. They have been really supportive and helped out in every which way possible. This has made our journey of taking care of my mom very easy. We would not be able to do this without the support and help of this agency.

When the doctor recommended Hospice for my mom, I was very confused and emotional. Vitas helped me make rational and caring decisions about my mom's final days and the aftermath. They have a team of people in place including a nurse, doctor, social worker and chaplain, along with their many other dedicated and caring professionals. I was overwhelmed with feelings, and Vitas just stepped in and made it a LOT easier.
