Hospice’s physical support helps individuals to manage the pain, discomfort and symptoms often associated with terminal illnesses. While this type of support is never designed to provide a cure, it does allow many of our clients to maintain independence and improve their quality of life.

Physical support is always closely monitored by Salus Homecare’s hospice medical director and a registered nurse to ensure your safety and comfort. Additionally, we work closely with your personal physician and always provide timely updates about the care you are receiving at home.

My physical therapist was outstanding. He was very kind and considerate and always let me know when he would arrive. He called to keep me updated on the appointment dates. I feel that he is the key to my progress because he motivated me to try and cheered me as I met my goals. I am extremely grateful for his guidance! Thank you for your wonderful care! Very sincerely.
