Salus Emotional Support During Hospice Care

The final months, weeks and days of life are often a challenging time where difficult emotions come to the surface and even the strongest of relationships are strained. Feelings of fear, frustration, anger and grief are common, but finding ways to come to terms with these emotions can help patients find solace and peace. The Salus Hospice team offers support to give patients and their family members opportunities to talk through difficult emotions and discover their own coping mechanisms.

Emotional Hospice Support Provided:

  • Counseling from a medical social worker
  • Social workers assisting clients in networking with and accessing community resources
  • General companionship
  • Bereavement services for the family after the individual has passed

As death feels closer, family members are faced with many tough decisions regarding end of life planning. Hospice professionals provide support as families talk through these decisions and get their questions answered. This compassionate support eases the emotional burden family members face and can help everyone to regain a sense of peace and empowerment throughout these difficult times.

After a loved one passes, families continue to benefit from emotional support as they work through the grieving process. Salus Hospice social workers remain available to provide important bereavement counseling services, offering comfort, opportunities to reminisce and a chance for healing. This can help a family to find their path forward and feel more at peace with the support they provided their loved one with in the final days.

Our caregiver was very knowledgeable and at each visit thought of different ways to keep my husband engaged and active. She was always enthusiastic and ready to try new things.

OT and nursing always arrived on time. Clear communication when scheduling the next appointments and arrived at that time…Everyone was very friendly and respectful of the home…

Feeling scared is normal for many people facing a terminal illness. At Salus Homecare, our social workers are trained to help you to cope with these negative feelings so that they do not consume you in the final months, weeks and days of life. This can improve your quality of life and help you to feel more comfortable with the dying process.

Salus Homecare’s hospice is designed to provide support to every member of the family, and this includes young children. Our social workers, chaplains and other professionals can speak to children about their concerns, and referrals can be made to community resources if necessary.

Salus Homecare’s hospice does not require any client to participate in therapy, but many clients find that they benefit from it. If you choose not to speak with a social worker or another mental health professional, simply say so. If you change your mind at any point, the services will remain available to you
