Mission Statement

Partners in Palliative Care, a program supported by Providence Hospice & Home Care of Snohomish County, works in partnership with various clinics striving to improve the quality of life of our community members. The program offers professional, empowering individuals and families to manage life threatening illnesses and direct end-of-life care.

Description

The goal of palliaitve care is to prevent and relieve suffering and to support the best possibility of life for patients and their families, regardless of the stage of the disease or the need for other therapies. Palliative care is both a philosophy of care and an organized, structured system for delivering care. Palliative care expands traditional disease-model medical treatments to include the goals of enhancing quality of life for patient and family, optimizing function, helping with decision-making and providing opportunities for personal growth. As such, it can be delivered concurrently with life-prolonged care or as the main focus of care.
