Hospice Vigil Care
What is Vigil Care?
Vigil care offers presence and support during the last hours of a patient's life. This practice is centuries old, but is not commonly practiced. Some patients have little or no family members nearby to keep vigil. Freudenthal Hospice is the only locally-owned hospice that offers this type of care. We tailor the vigil care to meet the needs and desires of our patients and their families.
Vigil Care May Include:
Being a calm presence
Sitting with the dying person and their family
Talking and answering questions about
the dying process
Reading of inspirational text or scripture
Playing soft music
