Erica is one of VITAS Healthcare's music therapists, who visit patients and make a connection through song. Our thanks to Tinmen, Inc., for producing and donating this video to VITAS Healthcare, after experiencing our music visits first-hand. http://www.vitas.com/hospic......
Hospice is a philosophy of care focused on comfort and quality of life, intended to give seriously ill patients and their loved ones meaningful time together when the focus is on the people, not the disease.
When hospice patients need care beyond what can be managed at home, VITAS inpatient hospice units allow us to offer an inpatient level of care in order to stabilize symptoms and return the patient to his or her home setting.
Patients may be admitted 24 hours a day from any setting—hospital, doctor’s office, home or nursing home. When caregivers need a break, our inpatient units offer up to five days of respite care to VITAS patients living at home.
