Salus ADLs Services

Activities of daily living are essential but sometimes complex self-care tasks that require good hand-eye coordination, the ability to stand for extended periods of time and a high level of dexterity and coordination. As we age, many of us struggle to manage activities of daily living independently as the result of illnesses, injuries or the aging process.

  • Grooming

  • Getting dressed
  • Managing continence or incontinence
  • Ambulation
  • Eating meals
  • Transferring (bed to standing, chair to standing, standing to wheelchair, etc.)

The key to effectively assisting someone with their ADLs is to respect the individual. While some people might need help with several tasks, others might prefer to remain mostly independent and only require a little bit of help with a couple of things.

Salus Homecare of San Diego empowers clients to remain safe and maintain their highest level of independence by developing individualized care plans. We listen to our clients needs and involve them, their families and their physicians in developing care plans that are effective and personalized. This helps many of our clients to feel more comfortable about the care they are receiving and the professionals who are assisting them in their homes.

When we first approached Salus in regard to the care of our parents, both in their late 80’s, we had no idea what challenges lay ahead. Six years later, we can honestly say we have experienced it all, from skin tears and bed sores to digestion issues and catheter problems, and everything in between. After a short period of determining which caregivers were a good match for our parents, we settled on a group of incredibly dedicated and caring individuals from Salus, who were with our parents to the end. They became our eyes and ears for our parents’ well-being and frequently they would text us or send pictures to keep us apprised. We will be forever grateful for their service and for doing their very best to improve the quality of life of our parents. We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to Salus’ case manager and schedulers. They were without exception professional, caring, and competent, which helped to keep as much continuity of caregivers as possible. We highly recommend Salus to anyone requiring homecare or hospice care.
