This extended support is appreciated by many of our clients and part of the reason they choose to use our services.  

I want to say thank you for taking care of my mom and loving her. We really appreciate the Salus hospice team in Arizona. They have all been very compassionate and caring. I met Jay this morning he’s so awesome.  Pat was here doing mamma’s nails, helping me get her dressed. The nurse was so kind to my mom and took the time to talk to her a little bit and everything! You have an awesome team. We love you guys, and we appreciate you guys. Thank you for making our life a little easier.

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.
