As death nears, many families are faced with trying decisions regarding end of life planning. Having a knowledgeable professional available to listen, advise and answer questions helps to ease confusions and uncertainties so family members develop new coping skills, reduce stress and regain a sense of peace.
After a patient passes, the family often faces new challenges and continues to need emotional support. Salus of Riverside County’s bereavement counselors remain available to talk, provide comfort, and offer opportunities to reminisce and a chance for healing. This extended support is valued by many of our clients and part of the reason they choose to use our accredited services.

Salus was especially good in smoothing the transition from skilled nursing in a facility to Homecare. They are very accommodating to changes to schedule and to changes to specific needs. I highly recommend Salus.

Salus provided in home care for my father for 26 months. His regular caregivers were excellent. They engaged him and provided safe transfer and hygiene care for him. Staff was flexible in their hours when the need arose to adjust around the regular schedule. They were a great comfort to my mother, who was the primary caregiver. If I was again in need of in home care services, I would definitely contact Salus. Thank you for making the last years of my father’s life livable. He wanted to be in his own home, and your staff and service made that possible.
