Providing Comfort and Care

 

Hospice was started in Snohomish County in 1978 after Sister Georgette Bayless, a Sister of Providence, met a woman who had to go through the death of her husband alone. Providence Hospice of Snohomish County provides comfort and care to those who are dying as well as to their family members.

In-Home Hospice Care

At Providence, we understand that patients and their loved ones experience many conflicting emotions when facing serious illnesses. In these times of great need, we are devoted to easing your way.  Hospice care is for people who are nearing the end of life. Unlike other medical care, the focus of hospice isn't to cure a disease. Our goal is to support the highest quality of life possible by embracing a holistic approach to your physical, emotional, social and spiritual care.

Whether you are receiving care in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or care in the comfort of your own home, you can rest assured your hospice team will create an atmosphere of compassion and dignity for you and your family. Trained in providing pain and symptom management, holistic care and guidance, your team of caregivers will work to ensure your time on hospice is one filled with attentive care. 

Because each family’s needs are unique, we build a supportive environment where you can voice your individual wishes about your plan of care, as well as seek answers to any questions you may have.

Our hospice care teams present and discuss your options and affirm that, at the end of the day, you’re in control of your care. We provide grief and loss counseling, planning assistance and help navigating the complicated medical system.

Hospice Care Center

Good end of life care provides a sense of life completion, that people are being honored and celebrated as they leave this life. We wanted to create a second home for those who are unable to be in their own when at the end of life. A place that embraces the whole family and allows peace, dignity, compassion and kindness to fill the halls while ensuring round-the-clock professional, medical emotional and spiritual care. We created Snohomish County's first and only inpatient Hospice Care Center. This tranquil facility helps individuals who can no longer manage care at home, for those needing additional care for a short time to relieve pain and manage symptoms, and for caregivers in need of respite from the rigors of caring for their loved one.
