Vitas Hospice Care
A serious, advancing life-limiting illness can be a difficult condition to confront--let alone to talk about with your loved ones and friends. Yet, for many of us, the day will come when we need to confront limitations resulting from serious illness and consider how we would like to be treated if our condition became terminal. How might we like our life's final chapters to unfold?
For over 30 years, VITAS has advocated for the rights of terminally ill patients and their families. We believe that patients should be apprised of their clinical prognosis and be involved in the decision-making process that determines how their end-of-life care is provided.
