Where Our Services Our Offered

In most cases, our compassionate and dedicated professionals provide care in the comfort of the patient’s own home or that of a family member. We are also able to provide care for the patient in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, or at the Kline Hospice House. The Kline Hospice House is a carefully designed residential facility that offers 24-hour care in a home-like environment.

What Is Hospice Care?

Hospice addresses the patient’s medical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. We also provide support for the families of patients. Bereavement support is provided for up to 13 months after the death of an individual’s loved one. These support services are open to anyone in the community who is grieving a loss.

At the core of hospice care is the belief that quality of life is just as important as length of life. Choosing hospice care is not giving up. It is changing the focus of care from curing the disease to controlling the symptoms.
