A Community-Built Hospice Home

The Marie Steiner Kelting Hospice Home has been funded by generous donors in the Ridgeview community. The Hospice Home is located on a three-acre site that was donated by the City of Chaska.

A generous lead gift from Paul and Sheila Steiner of Waconia named the home in memory of Paul's sister, Marie Steiner Kelting. The Steiner family wish is that families will enjoy the beauty and comfort of this Hospice Home.

Hospice services provided by the interdisciplinary team, medications and equipment related to the life-limiting diagnoses are covered by the Hospice Medicare Benefit, Medicaid HMOs, and most private insurance plans. Daily residence fees are the responsibility of the patient and family.
