At Salute Hospice, our priority is to keep our patients and their families peaceful and comfortable during the final phase of the patient’s life by enabling them to be at home with their family and loved ones. Hospice is a focused approach to caring for the terminally ill when life expectancy has been projected to be six months or less under the assumption the patient’s illness follows its expected course. In lieu of focusing on curative care, we in the hospice community focus on keeping the patient comfortable and pain-free by managing their symptoms and doing our best to preserve and improve their quality of life. This is called comfort/palliative care. In addition to meeting the patient’s medical needs, hospice care also addresses other pillars of humanity such as physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs. Our plans are designed uniquely and thoughtfully on an individual basis and follow our patients’ doctor’s specifications for our hospice team under the direction of our hospice medical director. Before any plan is complete, we make a concerted effort to consult the patient’s family and loved ones to ensure our plans provide the most thought, consideration and care possible. By taking these steps, we develop a completely custom care plan for each individual patient. We pride ourselves in offering various amenities such as:
For patients diagnosed with a terminal illness, hospice offers aid to patients and families. The term “there’s nothing we can do” is not necessarily so—while there may be little that can be done by medical professionals in regards to curing the patient, hospice care can always step in to do everything possible to help ease the effects of our patient’s symptoms and ultimately improve or sustain their quality of life. Salute Hospice’s goal is to enable patients to be able to live each day as fully as possible by keeping the effects of the condition at bay or, at the very least, providing comfort from those effects.
