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.
