Salus Advanced Care Planning in Palliative Care

Advanced care planning is a dynamic and ongoing process rather than a single event. It is a time for observation, reflection and contemplation about the decisions and choices surrounding your diagnosis and treatment to ensure they are in line with your personal goals. Some of the choices made during this time are difficult, but Salus Homecare of Orange County’s palliative care team is here to help.

I appreciated that the staff understood our need of caregivers and were easy to work with.
The caregivers were attentive and comfortable and I was at ease with their attention so I could leave and not worry.

My Salus nurse was amazing from start to finish! The social worker was very helpful and skilled in so many situations. The Chaplain, hairstylist and volunteer coordinators were also amazing! Thank you all so much!
