Compassion and dignity at life’s end
When every moment matters, your family can rely on the compassionate care of SALMON Hospice. Our professional team is devoted to optimizing the remainder of life for all our patients, with support and peace of mind for the people closest to them.
We provide a broad range of services, all delivered in a person’s home setting—wherever their home may be. Working with their physician, our caring team delivers nursing and other support tailored to each person’s unique needs and situation.
We support our patients and those closest to them by addressing physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual needs in specific ways.
Our team of caring, professional nurses works closely with the patient, their family and their physician to enhance the person’s quality of life, focusing on pain and symptom management.
Licensed social workers provide support and referral information for the emotional, psychological, social and financial stresses that often accompany the loss of someone close to us. We also provide assistance for end-of-life planning.
Our ordained ministers offer spiritual support to patients and the people close to them. We assist in deepening and strengthening their relationships as patients face their most difficult passage of life.
A licensed social worker provides emotional support, counseling and referral information for the grief, loss and adjustments that often accompany the loss of a beloved person.
We provide compassionate, certified home health aides to assist our patients with their personal care, hygiene needs and individualized specialty care.
Each individual’s grief is unique. Our Hospice Bereavement Program supports family members of hospice patients for up to thirteen months following a patient’s passing. We offer individual and family counseling led by a social worker specializing in grief, loss and adjustment.
Our team of trained individuals can bring a supportive and caring presence to patients and their families through companionship, performing small errands and offering various types of support as needed.
