I am a past client of this provider
VITAS Healthcare was very good. They seemed to be thorough and very caring. We had 24-hour care. If someone was running a little late, the person would stay until the other person came, but they were always within 10 minutes or so. We didn’t have a problem at all.
Hi Denise, my name is Avni and I read all VITAS reviews. Thank you very much for your feedback. I have shared it with the East Bay team, as well as our management team. I am glad to read that the team was very caring and you were able to rely on them. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. Sincerely, Avni Parekh

I will not recomment Vitas hospice! Everything they told me when I signed up for my mother has been a complete mess. Nothing has been delivered as promised and Mom's pain has NOT been relieved. She is on morphine and methadone with no pain relief. I have asked and PLEADED for them to try another opiate, but all I get is that 'their protocol' is morphine and methadone! They have increased Mom's morphine - no pain relief. They doubled the dose of methadone to the point that Mom almost went into a drug indused state that I was afraid she would never come out of. When she finally woke up, she said she was in PAIN! Supposedly hospice is comfort care - to date (since 12-2-14 to today 12-4-14) she has had no real relief from her pain.
