Catholic Community Hospice

Putting Love Into Action

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 Catholic Charities of Northeast 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.

Why Catholic Community Hospice?

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.

Compassionate, Faith-Based End-Of-Life Care

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.​

    A visit from a trained pet can increase pain tolerance, reduce stress, lower blood pressure and bring a smile to a patient’s face.​
