Queen Anne Healthcare takes pride in offering long-term care services to residents of Seattle and surrounding communities. Our friendly and compassionate long-term care staff, composed of registered, vocational and practical nurses and aids, provide 24-hour care services to seniors who are no longer able to care for themselves because of physical, emotional, or cognitive conditions.
We promote a life-filled atmosphere that mirrors the home-life many left behind. Musicians volunteer their talents, school children and pets often visit, and plants fill outdoor courtyards and indoor areas with life.
Long-term care services serve an important role in the continuum of care for seniors. Nursing home care services can include personal care, specialized diets, medication management, restorative therapy, social services, spiritual services, and individual and group activities. Our comprehensive long-term care services are provided through an individualized nursing home care plan approved by the seniors’ physicians.

Families providing in-home care for loved ones have continuously chosen us to care for loved ones on a short term basis. Our Senior Respite Care services are specially tailored to give families a well-deserved break from providing the compassionate daily care their loved one requires.
