End-of-Life can be an overwhelming experience for many patients and their families. Vantage Hospice is dedicated to providing care and services that address needs such as support, reassurance, counseling, education, and resources that will guide and assist the patient and family through this journey.
Hospice Values Care
Many people believe that hospice is a place where the last days of life are spent; however, this is not the case. Hospice is based on a philosophy of care that focuses primarily on the comfort of the individual and the family. To achieve this hospice provides physical, emotional, and spiritual care to the individual nearing end-of-life and also provides education and support to their loved ones. An interdisciplinary team is coordinated to provide each of these aspects of care and will travel to wherever the individual lives or chooses to live.
Hospice Values Self-Determination
The individual and the family always have a right to self-determination. To take away that right would oppose the hospice philosophy. You have the right to make decisions regarding all aspects of care. Hospice will provide you with education, advice, and knowledge based on experience; however, the choice to follow that guidance is ultimately the decision of the individual or the family, not hospice.
Hospice is a Process
Not every person is the same. There are many variations that affect how an individual will travel through their end-of-life experience. Hospice will address each issue or symptom as they occur and make changes as needed. While there are many commonalities in the disease process and the way the body will transition, there are also factors that make each person unique that can cause variations. Some of these include; mental and emotional health, as well as personality. Hospice will guide, educate, and support the individual and their loved ones through all aspects of care as symptoms and changes occur.
Hospice is Accepting
There are a multitude of cultural, religious, and spiritual beliefs in our society. Hospice accepts each family regardless of their background or beliefs and walks them through their journey without judgment. Hospice also understands the value of those beliefs as they relate to comfort and reassurance at end-of-life; therefore, will encourage and support the individual and family in those beliefs and traditions.

I am more than happy with the amount of support I received with Vantage. My aunt who recently passed from cancer on Monday was sent to hospice three weeks prior to her passing. I was left in charge of all her care and I decided to choose Vantage based on reviews. I cannot thank you guys enough for allowing my aunt to live her last days comfortable and without pain. Thank you all for your help. Special thank you to the nurses who took care of her during her last weeks "Raynata, Sequana and Angelica." I also want to point out their Chaplin Fr Raphael as he went several times as requested and made my aunt feel at peace.

This is our first time to use a hospice care facility and we are more than pleased with the wonderful care we are receiving from Vantage Hospice. We have a great care unit that we rely on...and they are extremely professional, caring, and loving. It is with profound love from my family that we highlight two employees, Chantelle and Monica. Monica is the main caretaker with my husband. He relates to her exceptional humor, uplifting and caring comments. You can tell she loves her job...the love she gives to him and us. She is definitely an asset to Vantage Hospice.

Love Vantage. I used them as a resource during my time in elder care, and everyone from their physicians to their social workers to their chaplain to their nurses were outstanding with great bedside manner. They genuinely loved the people that we love most. Can't ask for more than that.
I can't recommend them highly enough.
