Homeless people in Akron who are limited in their options for hospice care may be about to get a new resource.
Holly Klein is the president of Grace House Akron, which provides end-of-life care for people who can’t afford it. Her goal is to either find an existing house or build a new one that can provide beds for up to six people.
She says she felt motivated after hearing stories of hospice patients passing away without loved ones or a caretaker.
“Everyone has the right to death with dignity,” she said. “It’s not a privilege.”
