Salus Physical Support During Hospice Care

After a patient receives a life-limiting diagnosis, their focus sometimes shifts from taking a curative approach to managing symptoms and pain. This type of support improves quality of life and helps patients to find greater enjoyment in the time they have left.

Hospice’s physical support is an important component in the hospice care approach to better managing a terminal illness. While this type of support is never designed to provide a cure, it does allow many of our clients to maintain independence and find peace as they spend time with family and make important end of life decisions.

Physical support is always closely monitored by Salus Homecare’s hospice medical director and a registered nurse as your safety and comfort are our top priority. Additionally, we work closely with your personal physician and always provide timely updates about improvements, setbacks and the care you are receiving at home.

The care needed occurred practically overnight but Salus was able to provide 24/7 staffing on the day that I contacted them. Well done.

The case manager was especially friendly, professional and helpful.

Every person from your intake department all the way to the clinical team were very professional. At my first visit the nurse was very punctual and right on time extremely knowledgeable, and was able to teach my husband and my son how to do the IV antibiotics. The nurses that followed came one time when it was time to do my lab draws however a patient earlier ended up needing to use the supplies that she needed. So we pushed that visit to the following day and that is when another nurse took over for the rest of the visit. She was very knowledgeable and very punctual and on time. She was very confident and it showed. I absolutely will refer others to Salus.
