Finding Support While You Age in Place

The complex nature of the aging process means that many of us will one day experience an event that makes it necessary to find support. Planning ahead can make it easier to know which services are available and who to contact should you need to access them. It’s also a great way to start conversations with an aging loved one so that care decisions are never rushed and the senior feels more involved and receptive to support should their needs more permanently change or temporarily increase.

Salus’ integrated services are the perfect place to start as you’re beginning to research your current or future home care, home health, palliative care or hospice care needs.

Whether you choose homecare services or skilled services, we’ll deliver one-on-one care in the comfort of home, helping to make this process successful and rewarding – one that promotes dignity and empowers you to live your best life every day.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

No. Many family caregivers feel as if they have no idea what they’re getting into when they start on this journey. Learning comes through some trial and error, as well as having faith in the professionals who have traveled down this road many times before you. Our team’s expertise, knowledge and well- developed skillset can make it easier for you to feel empowered, in control and better prepared to meet your loved one’s needs. Many factors are involved in the process of determining what level of care is right for you or your loved ones. You, your family, your doctor and your Salus case manager will all be involved. We’ll perform an initial assessment where your physical and emotional needs will be evaluated and addressed, and we’ll ask lots of questions about your challenges and goals too. From there, we can make recommendations about the right care services for you and your family. Yes. Salus offers integrated services to meet a variety of needs, and combining different services is often appropriate. As an example: the person who is returning home after having surgery might need home health to assist with doctor ordered medical needs and home care to provide support with transportation, meal preparation and personal care while they focus on healing. The type of services you need will determine who pays for them. In the most general terms, hospice, palliative care and home health are typically covered by Medicare, Medicaid, MediCal or private insurance. Homecare services are often self-pay, but some long-term care plans will also sometimes provide coverage. We will help you to better understand your options, file any paperwork and develop a care plan that makes sense for your family. Salus Homecare is accredited by the Joint Commission. What that means for you is that we hold ourselves to the highest standards for homecare, home health, palliative care and hospice care. We continuously evaluate our practices and patient care standards and look for ways to make improvements. This benefits our team, the industry that we are proudly a part of, and most importantly, every client we serve. Activities of daily living are essential tasks that we all must perform everyday to remain independent. They include meeting hygiene needs, getting dressed, transferring from laying down to sitting or sitting to standing and managing toileting needs. While seemingly simple, these tasks often involve multiple steps, and they can sometimes be challenging after a surgery or illness or for some seniors throughout the aging process. In addition to speaking with your doctor and contacting our agency, there are many books and websites that can be helpful as you explore your options. The AARP, nahc.org and the Alzheimer’s Association are great places to start. The Salus team would be happy to speak with you to learn more about your specific needs and make further recommendations for resources that might help.
