Older adults on the Eastside soon will have a new option for accessing health care and social services. Providence ElderPlace, part of Providence Health & Services, this week announced it’s expanding its footprint with a new location in Redmond, slated to open June 7.
The expansion will provide the Eastside’s older population with access to Providence ElderPlace’s unique model of care known as PACE, or Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly.
Providence ElderPlace will feature primary and specialty medical care, dental care, physical and speech therapies, prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, transportation services, recreational programs, social activities, and much more — all in one convenient location.
“The goal of Providence ElderPlace is to help seniors remain independent in their communities. People choose a town to work, to raise their families, and they want to be able to stay in those communities as they age — even if their care needs change,” Providence ElderPlace executive director Susan Tuller said in a press release. “We’re really excited to bring this service to seniors on the Eastside.”
The new Redmond location will be Providence ElderPlace’s fourth King County location and is conveniently located adjacent to Providence John Gabriel House, a newly-opened, 75-unit low-income housing facility.
