Even when a client believes they are not spiritual, it is often beneficial to nurture and support their inner-self and connections to something bigger than self. Nurturing spirituality helps many individuals to regain a once lost sense of purpose in the final stage of life, and it can compliment efforts to help patients better manage any discomfort or physical side effects that are associated with their illness.
Salus Homecare of Riverside County’s spiritual support is offered in a sensitive, empowering way that provides peace and comfort. While no patient is required to accept spiritual support, it remains available to any who choose to discuss and ask questions about their own thoughts, beliefs, concerns or needs.

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.

No, our spiritual care is non-denominational and always sensitive to believers of all denominations and non-believers too. We will never push any religious beliefs on you. Rather, our goal is to provide you with the information and support you need to find peace with your own inner-self and connection to the universe throughout this difficult time in life and in whatever way feels best for you.
No, our chaplains honor your individual beliefs and faith and understand the value in maintaining those long-term connections to your place of worship and spiritual advisers. Our services are meant to compliment the spiritual care you are already enjoying rather than to ever take its place.
This is something that often becomes especially important to all of our patients nearing the end stages of life. While there really is no cookie-cutter answer, many patients benefit by starting to journal. Writing down thoughts and ideas helps them in reflecting on life’s accomplishments and the things they have enjoyed most. Others find peace, joy and understanding in creating music, painting, drawing or molding clay. Salus Homecare of Riverside County’s hospice chaplains can offer additional suggestions that might help you to find the sense of purpose that you are searching for.
