Health care needs change as people age. Providence provides whole-person, tailored care for all patients and supports their families throughout their health journey.
Providence Senior Health weaves together our integrated health system with our community partners to provide a simple, accessible path to health care for every person. Using creative ways to partner with older adults and their families, we are able to deliver health care tailored for each person’s specific needs.
Your support will help advance and expand programs for seniors at home or in a typical care setting.
Hospice and Palliative Care
Providence Hospice provides experienced, compassionate care for people nearing the end of life. The hospice care team provides everything from pain control and comfort care to emotional, social and spiritual support, including support for family members and caregivers.
We also offer bereavement support to anyone who has suffered a loss through death. All services are free of charge.
The aim of palliative care is to alleviate suffering in all its forms – physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual – and it can begin as early as diagnosis. Palliative care allows us to treat the whole patient, to address things that matter beyond the disease, improving quality of life and easing anxiety.
Your support will help improve all aspects of caring for seniors and for patients facing long-term illness or nearing the end of life.
