So What Happened?

We used Vitas and they are wonderful. They allowed her to stay at home until the end and made her comfortable the entire way.

My heart goes out to you in this VERY trying time. Hospice is definately the way to go. They are such wonderful people. They help with getting the medicine and then sorting the medicine into daily doses. A nusre comes once a week or so but then a nurses aid can come everyday to help out with things. Vitas Hospice was an incrediably wonderful expreience.

My father passed away in 2005 from liver cancer and we were able to keep him at home until the end with the amazing help of Vitas Hospice. they were absolutely wonderful and stayed with us right up to the very end. at first he only needed med checks and help with bathing but they began round the clock care about a month before he died. it never cost my mother a penny (Daddy was on social security disability). they billed medicare and accepted what medicare paid. they brought equipment and oxygen and even a bed when he couldn't get in and out of his own anymore. they have volunteers that come as often as possible just to sit and visit with the patient and the man who visited with my dad was so great it really kept his spirits up. you can reach Vitas by going to their website at www.vitas.com or the phone number is 1-866-418-4827. i wish you all the best and will keep your family in my prayers. good luck.

I know of someone who has a company that specializes in hospice and home health care. Her name is Kathy Walls. She also knows of all types of Medicare programs, etc that are available that will offset the costs of home health care. Here's her e-mail address ([email protected]____.com).
