I interviewed this provider

I could not agree more with Post2lulu. (I had to choose one star, but I would give VITAS none.) I actually gave VITAS a second chance after my bad experience regarding my uncle. During the interview, the VITAS representative was most charming -- yes, yes. However, my uncle received NOT ONE VISIT. He died alone in his care facility. Thankfully, I was with him only hours earlier. In my mother's case, it was the same routine: highly solicitous representatives who, after the initial conversation did absolutely NOTHING. No one ever followed up or visited. This organization is a sham. Yet, I continued to receive mailings telling me about groups I could attend with others. These notices were presumably to show how much VITAS cared. Shame.

I am a past client of this provider

I am sorry to have to give a bad review of Vitas, but they really did a horrible job with my family prior to and at the time of my father's death. Their communication was horrible with the family, every time we called, it was someone different and it seemed like No one ever was up to date on the my father's condition or plan of care. Their people were not empathetic nor particularly talented. When they came for the first visit, they thought they were seeing a woman, and my father's name was Harry!. It went downhill from there. Missed appointments, broken promises, and it was as if once we signed up, we were invisible. Dad died alone in his room at an extended care facility. It was the exact opposite of the experience we were wishing for. Horribly disappointing. They give hospice a bad name.

We are very thankful

Our Mom passed last May and I have not had the time to write here. But I would like to express my deep gratitude for what we received from Vitas, especially from a wonderful nurse named Polly. Her heart is beyond what you could hope for. Her spirituality and open mind helped us immensely to go through that difficult journey. It would not have been the same without her. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your great spirit, compassion and genuine generosity! Cécilia
