Salus Emotional Support During Hospice Care

Facing a terminal illness can take its toll on emotional health and family relationships. Feelings of anger, sadness and resentment are common, and these feelings often weigh heavy on the heart when the cause of them is an incurable disease. Emotional support helps people to cope. It is available to all of our clients and their family members through Salus Homecare San Diego’s hospice program. This support includes listening, advising and counseling with services provided by our team of social workers, counselors and volunteers.

Emotional Hospice Support Provided:

Emotional Hospice Support Provided:

  • Counseling from a social worker with medical expertise
  • Networking and community support through social work case management
  • Companionship from trained volunteers
  • Family bereavement care

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.

 

You guys rock! Thank you for all your help from the beginning to the end.

We have been using the services of Salus Homecare for over three years now. They came highly recommended by the staff at Casa de Manana and with good reason. What we have most appreciated about this company, in addition to their professionalism and quality caregivers, was their responsiveness to “bumps in the road.” No matter what the challenge, they responded quickly, responsibly, and compassionately. And they remained in close contact with our family to ensure that we were happy with the way things were going. In short, we feel fortunate to have discovered Salus Homecare and will be forever grateful for the care they have provided to our parents.

Emotional Care FAQ's

If you don’t see your question, please give us a call: (888) 725-8742

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.
