I am a past client of this provider

If you are seeking palliative care through this provider be firm about your request. Our experience was not a good one. A Providence Hematologist recommended palliative care to our mother upon our first visit. We agreed with this course of action and were looking forward to meeting with the palliative care representative. The people who showed up for the meeting were from hospice. When we attempted to straighten this out, the doctor forced hospice and denied our wishes for the palliative care. What should have been a smooth transition into palliative care turned into a nightmare. The hospice care workers do not offer any medical care (not even basic). Our mother developed bedsores which the hospice care workers refused to treat. We ended up turning her care over to a different provider who arranged for the palliative care we were originally seeking. Unfortunately, the hospice caregivers lack of attention to our mother resulted in serious injuries that she will not recover from. Be cautious of this provider if seeking palliative care. They tend to push hospice in cases where palliative care should be the first step. Should members of our family even need palliative care or hospice care we will seek our services from another provider.

I am a current client of this provider

I am my 89-year-old father's 24/7 at-home caregiver (daughter). Since his dementia took away his motor skills three months ago, he is totally bed-ridden, incontinent, and, of course, totally dependent. Providence Hospice has been there for us ever since the first "Get Acquainted" visit when he came home from the hospital. My Hospice RN visits every week; she listens and works with me to provide the best care for him that I can (her listening skills are wonderful). My Hospice CNA comes twice a week and bathes him; we look forward to her cheerfulness and her skill. My Hospice Volunteer comes once a week for four hours and gives me a needed break; she's so good with my father. My Hospice Social Worker comes every two weeks, and it's a time when she listens to me about me. Her listening and caring skills are wonderful. Everyone I have met associated with Portland Hospice (even those I've contacted on the phone with the hotline) and kind, caring, and helpful. Portland Hospice is a life-line and a tremendous help for those of us who must be at-home 24/7 caregivers. This is a difficult job when it is as intense as the one I'm doing. All the help I get is really appreciated.
