In taking care of my Dad in June 2012 Vitas was really helpful to my family. They told us how the end would be and prepared us. They helped him get ready and everyone from the nurse to the social worker took excellent care of him. My Dad was really comfortable while he was with Vitas and when he died. Even when we needed them on the weekend they were there quickly and always treated my family with respect. I hope no one needs their service but if you do Vitas did a really good job. We are all grateful.

The care and support that my family and I received from this organization was exceptional. I only wish that we had known about them earlier. My father struggled for a year with his cancer. It was a tremendous strain on our family especially near the end. One hospitalization followed the next as he fought the infections and complications from his drains. The nurse, Chaplin and social workers helped us to deal with our grief, and more importantly to make my father comfortable and keep him at home. During the last few days of his life they always had someone by his side addressing his needs and helping my sister and I to understand what was happening. I cannot thank them enough for all they did for him and for us all. God bless you!

I have cared for both my parents for over six years. I had to use hospice for my mom. Vitas was called and from the beginning they were very condescending and did not "hear" me. They were so caught up in there policies and procedures that they forgot that I was exhausted, just moved my 87 year old mother with severe dementia 200 miles by car and was in need of kindness, understanding and guidance which was not offered. I used their services for one week and dropped them. They treated my mom like she just paperwork and I was even told by a nurse not to waste my life on her. I would never recommend This company because that's what they are, a corporation. Certainly not what I had expected.
