Catholic Community Hospice provides care, comfort, and support to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of patients and families facing a life-limiting illness.
As a ministry of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, our interdisciplinary team serves people of all faiths by offering guidance, peace of mind, and compassionate end-of-life care. Our goal is to care for the whole person—body, mind, and spirit.
We understand the impact a serious illness has on patients and their loved ones. Our passion for hospice ministry is fueled by the desire to see patients met with a tangible expression of love, hope and compassion.
Catholic Community Hospice can play a key role in managing physical symptoms of a disease (palliative care) and supporting patients and families emotionally and spiritually. Family members often tell us “we could never have gone through this without you.”
Massage therapy has proven to be very effective in managing pain, reducing stiffness, improving circulation, and more.
Music therapy is an opportunity for communication and connection, bringing joy to the patients and those around them.
A visit from a trained pet can increase pain tolerance, reduce stress, lower blood pressure and bring a smile to a patient’s face.
And So Much More
We offer a Veteran-to-Veteran program, Angel Vigils, an Annual Memorial Service, and more.
Hospice care is covered by Medicare A, Medicaid, HMOs, Veterans Administration and many private insurance companies. Coverage generally includes team visitations, medications, equipment and supplies related to the terminal condition.
Catholic Community Hospice is a program of the archdiocese of Kansas City.
Absolutely not! Catholic Community Hospice serves all faiths. Our staff is very sensitive to other religions and beliefs and will work with your spiritual advisers and family to accommodate your needs.
Catholic Community Hospice does always abide by Ethical and Religious Directives for Health Care Services as outlined by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
If you are unsure whether to contact hospice, talk to your physician. An evaluation can be ordered to see if hospice care would be appropriate. Contact Catholic Community Hospice at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
