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.
