Physical Hospice Support Provided:

  • Pain Management
  • Monitoring vital statistics and the individual’s overall health and condition
  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Physical, occupational or speech therapy

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 situation is different from most of your customers, I was wanting to bring my husband home from a nursing home 5 days early. The intake person took care of everything. She kept on top of getting his medical needs from the nursing home and coordinating with me what I needed to do. The nurse you sent to help me was fantastic, she went beyond her duties. She called his doctors with questions and stayed on top of my husbands needs. The primary caregiver you sent was great, very experienced and helpful. He was very enthusiastic and knew what was best for my husband.

This was the second time I’ve used your company and I’m pleased with how I was treated and what you did for me.
