Physical Hospice Support Provided:

  • Specialized Pain Management
  • Monitoring vital statistics and the individual’s overall health, progress or setbacks
  • Assistance with essential daily activities
  • Physical, occupational or speech therapy

Hospice’s physical support helps patients to more effectively manage pain, discomfort and symptoms that typically accompany life-limiting diagnoses. While hospice’s physical care is never designed to provide a cure, it does allow the majority of patients to remain more independent and improve their quality of life.

Physical support is monitored by Salus Homecare’s hospice medical director and a registered nurse to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients. Additionally, we work closely with our patient’s medical providers, ensuring they receive regular updates and information that helps to improve the hospice care experience.

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.
