Today, we’re honored to be recognized as the community’s comprehensive, evolving Single-Source Senior Care Resource.

Description

Volunteers are the heart of our Kline Galland community. For over a century, our volunteers have enhanced quality of life and provided greater quality of care to our residents, patients and families. We have a multitude of diverse volunteer opportunities across our organization, be it on our Kline Galland Hospice team or in our facilities: Kline Galland Home & Mary Schwartz Summit.

Kline Galland Hospice serves terminally ill patients and families across the King County and Seattle metro area. Services are provided by a medically directed team of volunteers and professionals who respect and respond to the unique difference of each individual. After the patient's death, hospice care continues in the form of bereavement support for the surviving family to normalize their grief so that they may return to leading full and productive lives. Kline Galland Home (in Seward park, Seattle neighborhood) is recognized as one of the finest skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers in the country. We offer three major areas of care: Long-Term Care, Short-Term Care/Rehab, and Memory Care. For all areas of care, our interdisciplinary team works collaboratively to provide a personalized, holistic approach to health and well-being.
Mary Schwartz Summit (in First Hill, Seattle neighborhood) is a welcoming community that offers retirement living services. The Summit offers a variety of floor plans, events and activities, and a supportive environment that embraces Jewish culture.
