The shared experiences and camaraderie form a strong emotional bond that has been proven to be supportive for all involved.

Volunteers receive specialized training focused on a Veteran's specific needs.

About Hospice Care of VNA (Visiting Nurse Association)


1300 East 104th Street, Ste 300, Kansas City, MO 64131, US

Mission Statement

The Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) is a non-profit serving individual in the Kansas City area. Our mission has remained the same since its inception in 1891 - providing quality home health and hospice care to individuals regardless of ability to pay. As a division of VNA, VNA Hospice is dedicated to ensuring comfort, dignity and quality of life for all our patients wherever they call home.


Established in 1891, Visiting Nurse Association is the home of the oldest home health care agency (VNA Home Health) in the Kansas City area and the sixth oldest in the United States. Over the years, VNA has expanded the services provided and areas of services to reach more people. Hospice Care of VNA was reintroduced to the community in 2020. Our long-lasting legacy comes from our belief that people not only need someone to care for them, they also need someone to care about them. That is what we do at VNA and our patients say it is one of the many things that set us apart.
