Hospice and Palliative Care Services

Providence Hospice of Seattle serves seriously ill adults, children and families throughout King County, including Vashon Island. Our teams of professional health care providers have specialized training in end-of-life care. Our hospice care teams include nurses, medical social workers, home health aides, chaplains, occupational/physical therapists, pharmacist, medical directors, grief support counselors and volunteers.Through skilled, compassionate care, we strive to meet the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of patients and families. Hospice care is most effective when it is begun early so that patients and their families can benefit from the education, support and counseling services.

Dignity, Choice, Compassion

The truth is that hospice is not about how you die. It is about how you live. Hospice care helps patients and their families make informed choices, provides companionship to patients and respite to caregivers, provides grief support, and identifies key community services that can be of assistance. All hospice services are provided in the patient's home or place of residence: nursing home, assisted living facility or adult family home.

“You matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do all we can,  not only to help you die peacefully, but to live until you die.”
Dame Cecily Saunders, founder of the modern hospice movement
