When families are facing the realities of a life-limiting illness, hospice care helps people recognize that life is to be cherished and celebrated in every moment.

Kline Galland’s interdisciplinary team of compassionate professionals honor life and its transition into death by providing emotional, social and spiritual support to both the patient and family. Hospice care is intended to maximize the quality of life by providing symptom management and pain control. This may include medications prescribed by a doctor, the companionship of a volunteer sitting bedside, or a gentle massage by a trained specialist.

Hospice seeks to make this transition a time of comfort, relief, and release. Hospice services also include bereavement counseling and grief support for family members.

When is Hospice Care Appropriate?

Dr. Hope Druckman sees Kline Galland Hospice supporting patient and family alike.

Hospice care is recommended when a patient is entering his or her final phase of life (generally within six months of passing) and is seeking a comfortable and meaningful transition. If the prognosis is longer than six months, our Palliative Care program can help individuals cope with their chronic disease and in making informed decisions about treatment options.
