For the past several years, the Seattle/King County Health Care for Homeless Network and the University of Washington’s Harborview Medical Center has been running what is considered the first national program that sends mobile teams to provide palliative care to homeless people facing terminal illness. Funded by a federal grant through 2017, the program aims to reduce unnecessary or unwanted end-of-life care and to give homeless people a say in the process. Since its inception in 2014, it has sought out over 100 seriously ill men and women in the Seattle area, tracking them down at shelters, drop-in clinics, tents under bridges, and parked cars. The team travels by bus and looks to connect them with medical care, help them evaluate complicated treatment options, and accompany them as they pass away. Patients enrolled in the program have also reduced hospital stays and emergency room visits.
