Help your loved one make a smooth and supported transition.

Vilca Hospice and the Casa Asistencial de Vilcabamba offer complete end-of-life care to anyone in need.

The Casa Asistencial provides homey, comfortable, and loving care to residents at any stage of infirmity. We are licensed by the municipality of Loja and staffed by trained nurses, with oversight by a skilled doctor with experience in palliative care.

We offer long-term care at monthly rates or short-term care at day rates. We love our residents like our own relatives, and we care for them as such.

As your loved one approaches the end, they will have the option to transition to a hospice suite staffed and run by our partners at Vilca Hospice.

The hospice suite is arranged for the comfort of the patient AND friends and family, so your loved one is supported and comfortable in the final days of their life. Family and friends are welcome to visit and stay, but Vilca Hospice will also coordinate trained sitters to ensure that your loved one is never alone. They can also help you organize legal documentation and funeral and cremation services, as necessary.

This NEW dynamic opportunity is for ANY & ALL types of Dental procedure/work that you’ve likely been delaying for far too long, merely because of a logistical inability to find the time so as to schedule your appointment (WE HEARD YOU LOUD & CLEAR AND SO HERE IS YOUR BEST DENTAL ANSWER!).

NOW, with our Dental Clinic’s high level scan technology and multi-option creation tools for all dentistry purposes, you can ELIMINATE having to come for an in person appointment upfront, as simply send us your most recent Dental X-Rays to (even much older X-Rays are perfectly fine for this purpose if you’ve not knowingly had anything changed since then!), so that we can inspect and intuit your dentition therefrom by calculating expected/likely morphological changes to your gums and teeth that have reasonably occurred through age progression and the effects of time (plus we can...
