What does Hospice look like at EvergreenHealth?
GENE & IRENE WOCKNER HOSPICE CARE CENTER
EvergreenHealth has the only free-standing Hospice Care Center in all of King and Snohomish Counties. This 15-bed facility was designed to be as home-like as possible while providing hospital-level medical care for our patients who have symptoms too difficult to manage at home. In addition, patients & family members receive emotional support, education, and on-going assistance and resources; allowing family members quality time with their loved one.
IN-HOME HOSPICE CARE
When facing a life-limiting illness, EvergreenHealth Hospice Home Care provides a comprehensive model of care focused on quality of life rather than cure. Our program emphasizes symptom management and education while helping to address the emotional, mental and spiritual needs of the patient and his or her family and friends. EvergreenHealth Hospice Home Care currently serves more than 500 patients at any given time wherever they live within King and Snohomish counties: private homes, assisted living facilities, adult family homes and nursing facilities.
During the course of a progressive, complex illness, it can be very difficult to sort through the available treatment options. EvergreenHealth Palliative Care helps to navigate through these options based on the patient’s values and priorities. EvergreenHealth offers inpatient consultations for hospitalized patients and for patients in an outpatient clinic or home setting. This service is available to patients who have some form of life-limiting condition with a prognosis of two years or less.
