Hospice: care for patient, peace of mind for family

Ruth Klukas, 92, was living alone on her farm near Gibbon in 2013, and her family was concerned about her well-being as the effects of aging took their toll.
Klukas’ granddaughter, Laura Donnay of Glencoe, had experience with home health care, and was familiar with the hospice program offered in the past by ConnectCare and now by Allina Home Health. Donnay also used to work with ConnectCare.
“At some point, the doctor suggested hospice care and we made the call,” said Donnay.
