ORGANIZATION: Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care

  • 1 person is interested

Our goal at Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care is to ensure that our patients remain comfortable in their final months. Volunteer massage therapists can help by providing light, stress-relieving massage for homebound patients or those in long-term care facilities or hospice houses.

We try to match volunteers with patients in their preferred geographical areas, but we appreciate if you are also willing to occasionally travel to more distant areas if the need arises.

The gift of your time and skill could mean so much to a patient and their grateful caregiver.

Description

Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care is a nonprofit organization offering a range of services for people of all ages and at any stage of serious illness. We've been providing comfort and care to the seriously ill and their families in the greater Kansas City area since 1980.

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.
