How Can We Help

  • Hospice care focuses on comfort, dignity, and quality of life. At Salute Hospice, we concentrate on easing the pain and suffering associated with life-limiting illnesses. The success rate of hospice in controlling pain is very high. Most patients can attain an acceptable level of comfort through a combination medications, counseling, and spiritual support.
  • Patients receive care in the chosen environment where they are more comfortable and familiar with their surroundings.
