  • Managing Pain

Hospice’s physical support is not curative. Rather, it provides relief from pain symptoms and is palliative in nature. Most clients realize an improved mindset when they are free from physical pain, and with the right support, they maintain their highest level of independence longer.

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

Everyone at Salus was extremely responsive and eager to help and that made our experience so much better during a difficult time.

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!

You are never obligated to remain with hospice if you choose not to for any reason. While our approach is not curative, the option to stop services and resume treatment options remains available to you. The decision is always completely yours, and we encourage you to discuss it with your physician, family members and even our hospice team at any point.

Yes, your hospice care team will work with you to help you maintain your highest level of independence for as long as possible. While we will remain available to provide support and supervision as necessary, our team will listen to your cues and provide you with guidelines and modifications to keep personal care tasks safe and comfortable. As your needs change, your care plan will adapt to meet them.

Pain and symptom relief is provided by using the latest technology and medical advances. Medications are sometimes used to offer relief from pain, but they are closely monitored by your personal physician and our medical director. We also use massage, cool cloths, warm baths and physical and occupational therapy techniques to help keep you comfortable.
