Providence ElderPlace - Spokane
For more than 30 years, Providence has filled a special need in our community, providing adult day care for seniors whose lives have been challenged by disease, Alzheimer’s, dementia, injuries or the frailties associated with aging. In June 2020, we launched another service for medically-complex seniors.
(Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) Those enrolled with ElderPlace receive complete medical care, medications, medical supplies, adult day care, in-home care, care coordination, transportation and more. All the care and services covered by Medicare and Medicaid are included, when authorized by your health care team. Most ElderPlace enrollees are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid benefits, but this is not a requirement.

We have personal care aides, rehabilitation and nursing staff with a high staff-to-client ratio. Clients can receive personal care, toileting and grooming. A variety of therapeutic activities are provided to restore or maintain clients’ functioning.
We also provide a balance enhancing/fall prevention program. Our nurses provide wound, catheter and colostomy care, and may also provide tube feedings, pulmonary treatments and administer medication. They collaborate with your physician in medication, diabetes, cardiac, pain and general health monitoring and management. We also provide case management and caregiver support groups.
Funding sources include Medicaid, DDD (Department of Developmental Disabilities), Veteran’s Administration, United Way dollars, long-term care insurance, and private pay. We welcome donations to help fund services for those who are unable to pay the full cost of our services.

Clients are in a safe, supervised environment with their peers, where they can be active, mentally stimulated and have fun. Adult day health helps improve seniors' confidence, mood, strength and energy level. The therapy and care they receive keeps them in their home environment and helps prevent ER visits, hospitalizations and nursing home placement. Occupational therapy has been proven the single best intervention for improving cognitive functioning in dementia clients. Coming to Providence ElderPlace also gives caregivers a much needed break, and the assurance that their family member or client is well cared for.

Aging, accidents, or illness can often rob individuals of their skills and abilities. At Providence ElderPlace (formerly Adult Day Health) in Spokane, Washington, we provide a secure, caring environment for elderly and impaired adults to receive rehabilitation services, nursing care, health monitoring as well as giving them a chance to socialize.
By stimulating minds, strengthening bodies, nurturing spirits and respecting dignity, we help participants to achieve to their maximum abilities.
Providence helps impaired or senior citizens remain active in their community, improve mobility and enhance safety in the home. Though ongoing health assessments, prevention and early intervention we help promote independence and can help delay or prevent the need for a higher level of care.
That independence means that caregivers have time to care for their own physical, emotional and spiritual health, or can feel comfortable going to work, knowing their loved one is in good hands with us at Providence ElderPlace.
