Difficult questions are common as the end of life nears, and they become even more challenging for a family to face as they start to plan and make preparations for after their loved one is gone. Supportive hospice professionals listen with empathy, ask thought-provoking questions and help to guide family members down this sometimes difficult path. This eases burdens, helps the family to discover new coping skills and can make this stage of life less complicated for the family and the client.
After one of our clients passes, Salus Homecare San Diego realizes that there is still a need for support. Family members receive bereavement counseling to help them cope with their loss and find their path forward. This fosters a sense of peace, comfort and even renewed hope as families move toward their tomorrow while still remembering the important role that their loved one played.

Once again, our case manager was the beautiful, compassionate voice of wisdom and guidance. Her experience in the field helped us so much. Our caregiver, who was one of the caregivers was so attentive to my mother-in-law and listened to every word, no matter how confusing it was at the time. She has such a caring heart. Thank you for all of your help in a crisis once again!

No, hospice care is not about giving up. Our social workers and counselors can help you to understand this and learn to cope with the emotions you are experiencing. Hospice will help you to process and learn to place importance on your quality of life for all the time you have left. In this way, hospice is often a very positive experience for clients and families.
Yes, hospice support is for all members of the family, whether your family looks like a traditional family or not. Our social workers, chaplains and volunteers can discuss concerns and questions with your loved one in order to help him cope with what is ahead and feel more positive about his ability to take care of his emotional health and still provide you with support.
No hospice services are mandatory; however, Salus Homecare San Diego does advise all of our clients to at least consider counseling. Many clients find that having this emotional support benefits them. However, if you choose not to speak with a social worker, chaplain or volunteer, simply let us know. Also realize that you can change your mind at any time.
