VITALIS CLINICAL DIRECTOR

Being cared for at home with a team you can trust gives you and your family peace of mind and comfort at a time when you are at your most vulnerable.

This is a time when you want those closest to you near. You want
to feel as comfortable and peaceful as possible in familiar surroundings.
You with your family and friends around you, at home.

OVER 70% OF AUSTRALIANS EXPRESS THE DESIRE TO SPEND THE END-STAGE OF THEIR LIFE AT HOME (DYING WELL, GRATTAN INSTITUTE 2014).

Vitalis are experts at providing you with the clinical, practical and emotional support, so that you can remain in the comfort and privacy of your own home, rather than in hospital.

We join the dots, coordinating with your:

Specialists and family GP.
Equipment suppliers.
Pharmacy.
Allied health professionals.
Your formal and informal care teams.

Making sure you have the support you need, when you need it.

WE PROVIDE EXPERIENCED AND COMPASSIONATE CLINICAL AND CARE STAFF TO ASSIST YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY, AND KEEP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY INFORMED SO YOU KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT.

Vitalis is accredited by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS) to the National Standards to provide palliative care at home.

Vitalis gives you and your family the confidence, genuine support and peace of mind you need during this important time.

We work with some private health insurers to provide this service to patients, generally with no out-of-pocket expenses to you.

What Our Clients Say

Vitalis provided exceptional care for our elderly mother in her home for five months until her passing. We switched to Vitalis from another company as we were impressed by their professionalism, personalised approach, attention to detail, and the way they treated mum with respect, kindness and compassion at all times. Voni was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She brings a wealth of experience to the table and has a lovely bedside manner with her clients. No problem was every too big for Voni to resolve and she and her staff went above and beyond to ensure mum was being well cared for and that her comfort and dignity was maintained until the very end. I have no hesitation recommending Vitalis as a care provider and have already provided their details to a few friends exploring care options for their parents.

Words just cannot express how grateful I am for all that you have done over the last 4 nearly 5 months. Particularly in this last few days, I absolutely could not have gotten through it without you. Your calm, in control but gentle nature and work ethic we’re just what I needed. Whenever you said “now here’s the plan” was music to my ears. You facilitated the most beautiful death for dad, just what he wanted. Also I must commend you on your staff. Oh my gosh, we are all in love with Belinda and Deane. And of course Bella and Hannah too. Thank you Voni.

SC, Darling Point, September 2020

Voni, you are a true angel. Thank you so much for everything. You made Mum’s wishes come true and now she can be at peace knowing she could be at home one last time! It has been a true honour to meet you. You truly helped get us through this tough time.
