Thank you for assigning us your caring bath aide for my husband. Having home care, I had numerous opportunities to observe him perform his tasks, coupled with tenderness for my husband. He always operated from the standpoint of personal and professional excellence. His assets, responsibilities, and pride showed a strong work ethic. He was always respectful, caring, patient, calm, sensitive, competent, knowledgeable, and thorough. He was of great value to us and therefore a great value to Salus.

You may experience some, all or none of these symptoms. Whatever your personal experience is, palliative care will help you to more effectively manage them and enjoy a higher quality of life
