About Tacoma Hospice

For seniors in the end stages of terminal illness or disease, lifesaving treatments can provide more risk than potential benefit.  Tacoma hospice care is often recommended for local patients who are not expected to benefit from treatment of their condition, and the palliative care it offers can help greatly ease pain and suffering so that patients have a higher quality of life as well as more quality time with loved ones.  If you have a loved one in need of hospice care, knowing what to look for can be very helpful. One thing you will learn is that hospice can be provided in the home, in a hospital, or in a hospice facility.  The right choice depends on the needs and wishes of your loved one, though you will need to review your insurance policy to find out what type and duration of coverage you have.  Take the time to interview staff members and to find a facility that leaves you and your loved one feeling confident that physical, spiritual, and emotional needs will be attended to. At The Eldercare Channel of Tacoma, WA, we know that the need for hospice care is very emotional.  The directory below is designed to make it easier to find and contact hospice providers in the area.  We also offer resources to help you know when to look for hospice care and what questions to ask any facility or provider that you are considering. The video host of Tacoma’s Eldercare Channel is Robert L. Michaels of Smith Alling, P.S..
