Providence opens ‘ElderCare’ long-term care center in Spokane County

SPOKANE, Wash. — Providence Healthcare has launched a long-term care center for seniors.

Opened on June 1, ‘ElderPlace’ serves as an expansion of Providence’s Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), offering medical and long-term care and social services to seniors who want to stay in their communities.

This PACE center is located at 6018 N. Astor St., and Providence says it is the first of its kind in the county. The program was previously only in King County and served those residents.

ElderPlace transports seniors between their homes and the PACE center for medical and social services.

“Our program is growing to meet additional needs in Spokane County,” said ElderPlace Executive Director Susan Tuller. “The power of Providence ElderPlace is that we’re able to stabilize our vulnerable senior population and keep them healthy in the community, which is where they want to be.”

Currently, the ElderPlace system serves over 900 seniors—Providence says this newest PACE center will house a full clinic with a geriatrician, registered nurses, physical and occupational therapists.

To be eligible, you must be age 55 or older and in need of assistance with daily living.
