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.”
Hospice care is covered by Medicare A, Medicaid, HMOs, Veterans Administration and many private insurance companies. Coverage generally includes team visitations, medications, equipment and supplies related to the terminal condition.
Catholic Community Hospice is a program of Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas, a 501(c)(3) public charity (#48-1181305).
Absolutely not! Catholic Community Hospice serves all faiths. Our staff is very sensitive to other religions and beliefs and will work with your spiritual advisers and family to accommodate your needs.
Catholic Community Hospice does always abide by Ethical and Religious Directives for Health Care Services as outlined by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
If you are unsure whether to contact hospice, talk to your physician. An evaluation can be ordered to see if hospice care would be appropriate. Contact Catholic Community Hospice at 877.621.5090 or email@example.com with any questions.
"There is no better way to leave this world than in an environment where all the comforts of our Catholic faith are available to us and we are surrounded by the people we love."
