Safety and comfort remain a top priority for the entire Salus Hospice team in San Diego. Our San Diego hospice medical director and registered hospice nurse closely monitor your care and overall health in order to make your experience a positive one. We also maintain communication with the client’s personal physician and regularly update them about any setbacks, improvements or concerns.

My physical therapist I had 4 weeks after my knee replacement surgery was more than wonderful! She was never late so I always knew when to expect her. She taught me so many things about my knee surgery, medications and recovery. I am doing well today, 6 weeks after surgery because of her knowledge, kindness and caring. Thank you so much!
