Whatcom Hospice provides life-affirming care for patients with advanced illness or disease — and support for their families. The multi-disciplinary hospice care team serves patients wherever they live – in their own homes, assisted living, skilled nursing facilities or senior living communities. Whatcom Hospice serves patients with a limited life expectancy who choose to seek care that focuses on comfort, dignity and individual quality of life rather than curative treatment. Medicare and most other insurance plans cover hospice services.
Short-term in-patient hospice care is also available for some patients in the Whatcom Hospice House. The Whatcom Hospice House is located in the Happy Valley neighborhood of Bellingham. The hospice team there helps with the medical, social, emotional, and spiritual concerns that can arise during the final months of life.
