  3. VITAS Hospice – Melbourne

VITAS Hospice - Melbourne care is a special form of care for people with life-limiting illnesses. VITAS Hospice - Melbourne has been a pioneer and leader in the hospice movement since 1978, continuing today as the nation's leading provider of hospice care services. Our hospice care services are for adult and pediatric patients with a wide range of life-limiting illnesses, including cancer, stroke, heart disease, lung disease, liver disease, kidney disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS, Alzheimer’s and AIDS. When medical treatments can no longer cure a disease, our team of hospice professionals can do a great deal to control pain, reduce anxiety and offer needed spiritual and emotional support to patients and their families. We provide hospice care services wherever people with life-limiting illness reside and could benefit from our care. Our hospice care services are coordinated with the patient’s physician and provided during regularly scheduled visits by hospice care team members to manage the patient’s care. If a crisis should arise, we are able to respond 24 hours a day, seven days a week. VITAS also provides a continuum of other palliative care services to complement traditional hospice care, helping patients and families clarify their care goals and achieve comfort and symptom relief. Headquartered in Miami, Florida, VITAS Healthcare operates hospice programs in 15 states and the District of Columbia and is one of the nation’s largest providers of end-of-life care. The name VITAS (pronounced VEE-tahss) is derived from the Latin word for life. It symbolizes our mission: to preserve the quality of life for those who have a limited time to live.
