ORGANIZATION: Kansas Palliative and Hospice Care

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
We LOVE Our Volunteers!

Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with hospice patients who also have military experience. This relationship can create an environment where life review and healing may occur.

  • Volunteers are essential to the delivery of quality hospice care.
  • Veterans are a part of a distinct culture with their own common language and experience.
  • When Veterans interact, their common language and experience can form a strong relational bond.
The mutual trust and respect created between Veterans has proven to be supportive for all involved.

Some Veteran Volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to:

  • Reminiscing and telling life stories and assisting with making a record of these stories/events
  • Take part in Stand Down and other ceremonies and/or distribute certificates for Veterans Day and other recognition events.
  • Assist with planning and conducting the We Honor Vets program.
  • Spending time with a patient.
  • Assisting with household chores as requested

About Kansas Palliative and Hospice Care

Location:

6828 Silverheel St., Shawnee, KS 66226, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the highest level of comfort and care, honoring and respecting the dignity of each individual, and enhancing the quality of living at the end of life, under the guidance of Christian principles.

Description

  • We are Midwest owned and operated. We make decisions locally. Our people live in the community we support. Our leaders and owners are actively involved in the business and are all Midwest residents.
  • Kansas Palliative & Hospice Care is one of the oldest hospice providers in the State of Kansas with its approval to provide Medicare hospice services originating in 1991. We serve the entire Northeast Kansas Area, as far south as Franklin county to our northern border in Doniphan county, as west as Riley county.
  • We are committed to exceeding industry standards. We recognize that each patient’s life experiences and spiritual beliefs have created a unique individual who deserves the finest care and emotional support, while honoring and respecting their needs and wishes. All while keeping care costs lower by striving to care for our patients and their caregivers at home.
  • Of all the benefits available to our patients we believe the hospice benefit is the most misunderstood of them all. The benefits are incredible, the cost is negligible and yet the participation rate is low. We believe this is because of a fundamental misunderstanding of the program.
