In the last days or hours of life, family members face a lot of tough decisions that they must consider while grappling with their own emotions. Having a supportive professional available to talk through end of life planning decisions and help answer questions can ease these burdens. Time spent with social workers and grief counselors also helps family members to discover their own coping skills and move past this moment in life in a more positive way.
After a patient has passed, families continue to benefit from grief counseling services. This important care provides comfort and reassurance as well as opportunities for reminiscing and healing. The Salus hospice team in Utah offers grief counseling services to every family member, and our compassionate social workers are a primary reason why many patients choose us for their care.

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 Utah 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.
