Other Services and Amenities
At Providence Mother Joseph Care Center we know that promoting a healthy sense of self-esteem through mental and emotional stimulation is as important as physical well-being. To benefit the “whole” person, we offer many special services and amenities.
Our newly renovated building, thanks in part through charitable gifts to our foundation, has a reassuringly homelike feeling and offers ease of access and movement. Bay windows in resident rooms provide personal space for an assortment of keepsakes from home. Our two beautifully landscaped outdoor courtyards offer charming gazebos, picnic tables and raised gardening beds. We have a welcoming living room and cozy library that provide communal space for our residents to relax or visit with guests.
Leisure and recreational programs are designed by our Activities Department to improve functional abilities related to physical skills and personal knowledge goals. These programs also give our residents and staff a chance to be creative and provide a fun and cheerful atmosphere. Residents and patients enjoy weekly activities such as BINGO, baking, and arts and crafts. We offer regularly scheduled outings for shopping trips, dining out for lunch, going to the movies, or a day at the casino. We also have special seasonal outings like Seattle Mariners games, Music in the Park, ferry rides to Vashon Island, or Seniors Day at the Western Washington Fair. All patients, residents and family members are welcome and encouraged to participate.
Our Social Services Department assists residents and families in addressing many needs, including mental health, financial adjustment and facility concerns, discharge planning and related issues. The social workers are knowledgeable about community services and will provide information and referrals as needed.
Spiritual Care Services
Spiritual Care Services are provided to serve residents, families and staff who desire spiritual support, counseling and religious programs and study. People of all faiths are welcome at Providence Mother Joseph Care Center. Regularly scheduled services including Roman Catholic Mass, are offered in our Chapel, which is open and accessible to our residents, staff and family members day and night.
Our Dining Services Program meets the nutritional, therapeutic, social and special dietary requirements of each individual in our care. We encourage residents to enjoy meals in one of our dining rooms. This is a great way to meet other residents and engage in some social activities. Our staff is committed to excellence in food quality, service, and customer satisfaction. Our current menu has a wide variety of choices and incorporates seasonal vegetables and fruits. In addition to our great Kitchen team, we also have a full time Registered Dietician and a Diet Tech who will work with you to address your nutritional and dietary needs.
Additional Services and Amenities
Additional services and amenities include a full service Beauty & Barber Shop, cable service, video/DVD library, computer access, free WiFi internet service, Nintendo® Wii™ gaming system, private telephone line, easy access to public transportation, and convenient location close to area hospitals and medical clinics.
Above all, Providence Mother Joseph Care Center respects each individual’s right to self-determination. We encourage participation in the “Plan of Care.” You will find the Resident’s Bill of Rights posted throughout our facility. A written copy is provided to all residents at the time of admission.
