Providence ElderPlace Redmond celebrated its one-year anniversary with an open house on July 11 from 2 to 4 p.m.

Providence ElderPlace Redmond, located at 8632 160th Ave. NE, Suite 120, offers residents on the Eastside of Lake Washington an innovative program that provides medical care and social services to seniors who wish to continue to live in the community, thus avoiding or minimizing stays in hospitals and nursing homes. The new program opened on June 7, 2017, and is adjacent to Providence John Gabriel House, a 75-unit low-income housing faculty that Providence opened in April 2017.

Providence ElderPlace Redmond is the fourth Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) center in King County, serving residents in Redmond, Bellevue, Issaquah, Bothell, Woodinville, Kirkland and Sammamish. Providence ElderPlace previously served the west and southern portions of King County with its centers in South Seattle, West Seattle and Kent.

“In the year since we’ve opened we’ve served dozens of adults who otherwise might have to be cared for in a nursing home,” Providence ElderPlace Operations Manager, Mikki Burns, said in a press release. “We help seniors remain independent in their communities – even as their care needs change. I’m excited that we can continue to serve seniors on the Eastside.”

Providence ElderPlace opened the Redmond center in response to a growing need by seniors who want to be able to see their doctor or their nurse, a dentist and other specialists, to get their medications, have lunch, and participate in activities with their peers all in one place.

The new center houses a full medical clinic with a geriatrician, registered nurses, physical and occupational therapists. Participants may also enjoy social programs. Housing all of these medical and social services in one place allows participants to remain as independent as possible.

Eligible individuals must be age 55 and over, and in need of assistance determined by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services.
