The nurse was wonderful with my mother, she was so kind and caring. My mother would just light up when she came to see her. All of the staff who came to care for my mother were so caring too. Thank you for the wonderful care for my mother, my family really appreciated all of the help we were given for her needs.

Hal P Los Angeles April 16, 2024

On behalf of my family, we would like to thank you all for your hard work and dedication, putting your amazing skills to work in handling end-of-life care for our dearly loved father, Curtis Holmes. Our father passed away Tuesday morning, 10/3/23, peacefully in our home. All I could think was how grateful my family and I are to have all of you and your team with us until the end. The care you all provided from start to finish was priceless and paramount. It was exactly the expedient change we needed within that crucial period of time. We can’t thank you enough. THANK YOU TO OUR NURSING STAFF, SOCIAL WORKER, CHAPLIAN, EQUIPMENT DELIVERY STAFF AND COORDINATORS.

Home Health FAQs

If you don’t see your question, please give us a call: (888) 725-8742

Salus Homecare of Los Angeles holds industry leading standards for all of our Los Angeles, Ventura County and Orange County home health employees. They must undergo an extensive interview process that includes a background check, request for references and review of any education, licensure or certifications. Additionally, our home health nurses regularly participate in mandatory trainings to update their skills and stay informed about the latest health care and home care innovations.

Yes. While a significant number of our referrals do come from hospital discharge planners, we also work with area primary care physicians and specialists in Los Angeles, Orange County and Ventura County. Many choose to refer patients to Salus Homecare of Los Angeles first because of our high standards and national accreditation.

No. Salus Homecare of Los Angeles provides home care and home health services to adults of all ages in Los Angeles, Ventura County and Orange County. Skilled nursing and therapeutic services are made available to individuals who need assistance long term, short term or intermittently.

Home health nurses are medical professionals with a very specific skill set. Their primary responsibility is to assist you with medically indicated recovery or maintenance needs. They will assist with some activities of daily living while spending time in your home, but they do not complete housekeeping tasks or provide transportation. For clients who would benefit from non-medical assistance, we often recommend our home care services. Many clients choose to utilize both in home health and in home care services for this very reason.  

The cost of our services varies greatly depending on how many hours of care you are provided with and which services you select or your doctor prescribes. Salus Homecare of Los Angeles offers very flexible scheduling which often helps clients to control the costs, and we are happy to assist you by filing directly with Medicare, the Veteran’s Administration, Medi-Cal or you private insurance company.

Salus Homecare of Los Angeles is not a substitute for your primary care physician or any medical specialists. Our goal is to enhance your recovery or help you maintain your highest level of independence and health, and we will work with your doctor to achieve it. Your doctor will write the initial order requesting home health care, and we will involve him in creating your care plan and making any updates to it along the way.

With Salus Homecare of Los Angeles, you never have to worry about managing schedules. We will ensure that nurses and therapists visit you at times that are convenient, and their care will only overlap if it is medically appropriate. We also have care managers on call 24 hours a day and seven days a week in case you ever need to make a last minute scheduling change or have an emergency.

It is not necessary to provide any of our home health professionals with a key to your home. As long as you can get to the door to let them in for scheduled visits or have a family member or friend who can assist, there is no need. If you are not able to get to the door and do not have anyone to assist, our care manager can discuss this with you and come up with a solution you are comfortable with.

Both home health care and hospice provide medically indicated, comprehensive care in Los Angeles, Orange County and Ventura County, but home health care focuses on patient rehabilitation and the management of chronic medical conditions. Hospice focuses on supporting terminally ill patients and managing pain, and it is only appropriate for those with a life expectancy of six months or less.

What Our Patients & Their Families Say About Us

“My nurse is knowledgeable, skilled and compassionate. Her care keeps me confidently moving toward my health related goals.”

Los Angeles In home care is also available for those needing assistance with ADLs, and hospice care improves quality of life for those faced with terminal illnesses.
