When a person believes the final weeks or months of life are upon them, they often contemplate difficult questions. In expressing these questions, they sometimes cause pain or uncertainty for themselves and their loved ones. Supportive hospice professionals utilize empathic listening skills to show compassion and seek understanding. In doing this, they often help you to better understand things you are questioning and discover new coping skills to ease burdens and overcome many challenges. This can make the end of life a little less complicated so you feel secure enjoying all the time you have left.
After a patient passes, Salus Homecare Los Angeles continues to provide support to grieving loved ones. Family members receive bereavement counseling to help them cope with their loss and feel safe and more confident moving on to their next stage in life. This fosters peace, comfort and even renewed hope and can help family members move through the stages of grief in a healthier way so they enjoy a better tomorrow.

Anticipatory grief is defined as when family members start to grieve the loss of a loved one before the loved one passes. While it is often uncomfortable to discuss and many people feel guilty about experiencing it, anticipatory grief is healthy in some ways. It can help to make the grieving process after a loved one passes easier. Salus Homecare Los Angeles provides support to family members facing anticipatory grief. This may be in the form of counseling, offering respite care to give the family time to process feelings away from their loved one or helping you to find and access support groups and other community resources.
