Hospice at Home

If you visit a hospital and speak with any of the patients, you’ll hear one thing over and over. “I want to go home.” Most people will tell you that they want to spend their last months at home, with their family and friends around them. But, that is often not the case.

Hospice care is a proven way of working with people in their homes to provide the kinds of support that will help them realize their goals at the end of life. For almost 40 years, we’ve been a leader in Kansas City health care, helping families to focus on living life to the fullest, no matter how much time that might be.

Several things you’ll want to know about hospice at home:

  • The care you need comes to you. Your nurse case manager will make sure you have everything you need to be comfortable at home.
  • We’ll help you focus on the things that are most important to you in maintaining your quality of life
  • You and your family will receive emotional and spiritual support when you need it
  • Your family can worry less with the support of the hospice team to bring care and comfort
  • Hospice care can help you stay independent longer, spend less time in the hospital and greatly reduce ER visits
  • As your needs change, your hospice team will help you and your family identify more resources
  • If you need to transition to assisted living or a long-term care facility, we will assist and continue to provide your hospice care
  • Maintaining your independence and dignity is of utmost importance to us
  • If you’re on Medicare, 100% of the costs of hospice are covered and most insurance companies offer similar benefits.

All people receiving hospice care from Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care work with an RN case manager and a team of hospice professionals. You may choose which services you would like to have. Our experienced team members will visit as often as needed and desired.
