Now and Forever

Sharing the journey alongside our loved ones as they face advanced illness is one of life’s most important, most difficult, and potentially most rewarding experiences. Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care partners with families to make this time meaningful, ensuring that cherished ones are surrounded by peace and comfort.

So many lives have been touched! We see the love reflected back to us every day, from the passionate volunteers and generous donors who make it possible for us to offer comfort and care to the people of Kansas City.

Three key wishes seem common among our patients:
“I don’t want to give up on life, I want my family cared for and I don’t want to suffer.” Simple in concept, but a challenge to custom fit to each family’s needs. That’s where we make a difference, extending our care far beyond medical needs to make every moment count.

You can help us to …

Enrich Life

The final days, weeks and months of life are vitally important and meaningful. We help patients and families make the most of their time together by tending to their emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. Whether gathering family for a special meal, creating art or music, recording special memories, caring for a beloved pet or granting a final wish, each moment of life is celebrated.

Embrace Family

Meeting the needs of families goes hand-in-hand with caring for their loved ones. Health challengesoften bring a time when family members may feel
overwhelmed. Relatives and friends receive the resources and reassurances needed to navigate through the labyrinth of healthcare while serving as a source of strength for loved ones.

Ease Suffering

Patients with serious illness are cared for holistically — body, mind, heart and spirit — by an expert team of physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains and volunteers who customize care to help both patients and families feel comfortable.

Consider Your Legacy

In life,  where we invest our time, talents and resources says a lot about our priorities. And, as we leave an example for others to follow, our giving reflects what matters most to us.

Life has a tendency to sneak up on us, so it’s important to take time now to plan for the future and give consideration to the kind of legacy we wish to begin creating.

By giving to Kansas City Hospice and Palliative Care, you can make a powerful testimony to your priorities. And, because there are many ways to accomplish your gift, you have the flexibility to fulfill your goals in the way that works best for you.

Whether a one-time gift, recurring donations or a legacy after your lifetime, your donation will have a direct impact on the lives of people in Kansas City.

Crafting a legacy of compassion and caring reflects a spirit of service for humanity. It ensures that support will be available when people need it the most.
