Salus Emotional Support During Hospice Care in San Diego

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.

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 San Diego 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 in San Diego 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.

My physical therapist provided exercises for me to help increase my strength and stamina. She also provided exercises to assist me with balance. Her instructions were very clear and she provided drawings to assist me in remembering the exercises. She was pleasant, friendly and encouraging. I continue to do the PT exercises to this day! Kudos to her and Salus Home Health.
