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.

I work at an assisted living home. I’ve been doing this work for a long time, seen a lot of hospice. Salus came in and got to know my resident and all of us. The communication with the nurses is amazing. Whenever I had a question or concern, I could call or text and know in minutes. My resident had something to look forward to weekly with the pampering of the shower aide not just a shower or bath, but nails and massage. I would recommend this company to everybody. Thank you so much for the great care. We look forward to working together again.

My father entered hospice with Salus in Arizona in September 2023. The Arizona staff has been tremendous with him! He is always treated with respect and dignity. Sometimes he has asked to forgo his bath in order just to talk to his aide. And they all take the time to listen. As I do not reside in Arizona, I appreciate the abundant communication with his “team” who check in with me and keep me up to date with his needs. I would highly recommend Salus to anyone in the Phoenix area.
