Hospice Reviews for VITAS Healthcare

VITAS Healthcare was the first hospice Mother was under, and they were excellent and went above and beyond what was needed. They brought their pedicure set and because they couldn't do much for her, they would file her nails, put her nail polish on, give her a massage, and do other things to make a person feel good. They warmed up her towels and blankets and washed her off. They followed her when she went to the assisted living for a several months. We were very happy with their care.

Provider Response

Dear Taletha, Thank you very much for sharing your experience with VITAS in San Antonio. I shared your feedback with the local management team and they greatly appreciate it. Sincerely, Avni Parekh

I will try to put into words what Vitas Innovative Hospice Care with its outstanding team of workers that were assigned to my husband, William A. Lucas, meant to him and to us as a family. The words will, however, be very inadequate to express our gratitude for the outstanding service for my husband. Yours was not just a service but a ministry. Thank you Dr. Moskowicz for your care. Thank you Joan!!! What a beautiful, caring service you render. It is obvious your heart is in your work. The chaplain, Virginia, as well exhibited deep love and care. Thank you! Alma radiated the same care, love, and concern that depicted the entire team. There were others who helped from time to time. Many, many thanks from grateful hearts.

Provider Response

Dear Bettie, I'm sorry for the loss of your husband, please accept my condolences. My name is Avni Parekh and I read all the reviews posted about VITAS. I have shared your review with the program/team that cared for your husband, as well as our executive management team. Your words of gratitude mean much more to our teams than you may know. I also agree with you, the care we provide is definitely more than a service: It's a calling to serve others and give back to the community. Thank you for giving VITAS the opportunity to provide care to William, as well as you and your family. Sincerely, Avni Parekh

I had my mom with VITAS for a week before she passed away. I just want to thank the angles that took care of mom. They were too many to name. You guys gave me and my daughters so much help taking care of my mom that we couldnt have done it without you. God bless you.

I interviewed this provider

The day we called VITAS, they were very responsive and got a hospital bed and materials out here right away. It went downhill over the next few days. The day my husband passed away, I tried to call and get a nurse out here. It took them 4 1/2 hours for a nurse to finally get here and my husband had already passed away. They failed me in my greatest hour of need. One other time I called in to ask a question and that time it took 4 hrs for them to return my call.
