Salus’ palliative care team provides information and guidance to help you feel confident in the choices you make regarding advanced care planning. This key pillar to our palliative care program provides support to both the patient and family members so that you can better prepare for the unexpected and ensure your wishes are understood and respected.
Advanced care planning is a gift for your loved ones as much as it’s an important experience for you. Helping them to better understand your wishes and goals reduces stress, anxiety and uncertainty. It also empowers them to help you maintain control over your treatments in a dignified and respectful way.

Our caregiver was wonderful, helpful, and couldn’t have been more helpful in all needs that could have been provided!

My 104 year old mom was on both Salus Home Health and Salus Hospice, and the care she received was extraordinary. I have dealt with a number of healthcare companies in the two and a half years of my mom’s declining health, and Salus was by far the best. The Home Health nurses were very caring and compassionate, and they called before and after every visit with my mom. I could reach them on weekends, and at first I was disappointed to learn that they would not be the same nurses when my mom transitioned to Hospice. Well it turns out the Salus Hospice nurses were just as caring, always available, and took wonderful care of my mom up until the minute she passed. That can not be an easy job, and I have nothing but praise for everyone at Salus. Thanks for your care and help.

Social workers can also mediate during conversations and ensure that everyone clearly understands the information you present.
You are never required to have specific documents to take advantage of palliative care services. However, there are important reasons why we highly recommend these documents. They hold a lot of value in helping you communicate your wishes. We are happy to explain the importance of these documents and help you access community resources that can help with preparing them.
These decisions are yours to make. They are deeply personal and based on your values and beliefs. Our team is here to discuss your options and help you understand your choices, but your choices are final, and we will always respect them.
