Hospice Reviews for VITAS Healthcare

July 27, 2011

By CN4ever

I am a past client of this provider

This organization saved my life as I had been struggling alone with my husband's care. Vitas nurses and care givers came in and assessed his situation and guided me through his final days. They were kind, caring, patient, and took the stress of my husband's care off of me right in our home. I cannot say enough praises about this organization. They were absolutely wonderful! They provided consuling, and grief groups following his passing. It has been one year since my husband passed and I still attend the grief group they have provided, free of charge, as it was wonderful to meet people who were struggling with the same emotions and fears that I was dealing with. My only regret is that I did not call Vitas sooner.
