We respect the privacy, the views and the decisions of the people we serve. We seek and encourage the participation of their families. We acknowledge that each person has a unique history and special qualities. From this respect comes extraordinary compassion and caring, as we strive to help them achieve their best quality of life. And we never lose sight of our most basic responsibility--to treat each individual as we would want to be treated ourselves.
Hospice is a concept of care which focuses on enhancing life and providing compassionate care for people entering the last stages of life. Hospice neither prolongs life, nor does it hasten death; its goal is to enable individuals to continue to live the duration of their lives free of avoidable pain and unpleasant symptoms. Hospice care brings comfort and dignity to individuals because it focuses on achieving the best quality of life possible during the advanced phases of a terminal illness.
Choosing hospice is always a difficult decision. During this challenging time, it is important to know that you and your family are not alone. We here at SALMON Hospice are dedicated to supporting our patients and those closest to them as they face this difficult stage of life. We address the physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual needs of our patients while offering their families the support and any assistance they need.
