Salus Advanced Care Planning in Palliative Care

Advanced care planning consists of making important decisions about health and finances to prepare for a time when you might not be able to express your choices. This dynamic process is ongoing and reflective of your goals and values. Many of the choices made after receiving a serious medical diagnosis are difficult, but Salus is here to help.

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.

In my work I run into many “caretakers” and my experience with the Salus personnel has renewed my admiration and gratefulness for all that you do. I met three of the care-takers for my client and have nothing but good things to say. They were gentle, attentive, kind and with good senses of humor. Never did I see any of the three become impatient and for the most part they went out of the way to make sure she had all she needed.

I recently moved my client to an Assisted Living Facility and one of them accompanied us on the move and was of great assistance in orienting our mutual client to her new surroundings. I called the facility this morning and my client is doing great. Thank you for all that you do and you can be sure I will be using Salus again when I find the need.

Our Case Manager is a wonderful, young woman. Very compassionate and very on hands without being intrusive. Thanks again.

Salus Palliative Care social workers are here to help you clearly communicate with your loved ones. They’ll coach you through this process, help you to answer important questions for yourself before having conversations with others and support you in staying true to your wishes. 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.
