Salus Spiritual Support During Hospice Care

Spirituality means different things to all of us. For some, it involves participating in an organized religion, and for others, it simply refers to honoring an individual’s sense of purpose and connection to some greater purpose. When faced with a terminal illness, many individuals begin to question the deeper meaning of life and their own spiritual existence. Responses can vary from sadness to isolation or even becoming extremely hyper and needing constant attention. At Salus Homecare of Maricopa County, we recognize the importance of nurturing a hospice patient’s spiritual side and provide a variety of services that can help.

Even when a client is not religious, it is still beneficial to nurture and support their spirituality. Nurturing spirituality helps many individuals to maintain a sense of purpose in the final moments of life, and it can play a part in helping individuals to manage any uncomfortable physical symptoms. The body, mind and spirit are deeply connected.

Salus Homecare of Maricopa County’s spiritual support is offered in a sensitive, confidential way that provides comfort and reassurance. While we never force any client to accept spiritual support, it remains available should they choose to address their own questions, concerns or needs.

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.

Spiritual Support FAQ's

If you don’t see your question, please give us a call: (888) 881-4822

No, hospice spiritual support is non-denominational. We will never push you to change your beliefs and are simply there to provide you with support.

No, we encourage you to remain connected to your place of worship and will take steps to support that. Our chaplains can also provide additional resources that are in line with your beliefs.

This is something that often becomes increasingly important to individuals in the end stages of life. Many people benefit by writing in a journal and reflecting on their personal accomplishments and the things they have enjoyed doing. Others find art mediums such as music, painting, knitting or building with clay to be helpful. Salus Homecare of Maricopa County’s hospice chaplains can offer other suggestions that might help you to find the peace and sense of purpose that you are searching for.
