Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care

  • 1 person is interested

We are Kansas City’s hospice--local and nonprofit. We provide care for patients with advanced illnesses, and we need volunteers like you.

Most of our patients can’t leave their home, nursing facility, or hospice house. We have a great need for licensed cosmetologists willing to donate just a little of their time (perhaps an hour or two per month) to cut hair in the patient’s residence.

We’ll provide you with some basic hospice training. Whenever possible, we match volunteers with patients in their geographical area. You also have full flexibility to schedule with the patient and family when it's convenient for you.

A haircut can make you feel amazing and brighten your day. Please help us provide a great service (and a little pampering!) to a very grateful person and their loved ones.

By providing both hospice and palliative care, we are able to assist patients and their loved ones at any time following a serious diagnosis. Hospice is provided when the focus is primarily on comfort; palliative care is provided when it is too early for hospice care and the patient may be seeking treatment aimed at cure.
