Gives Extra Help to Seniors Living Independently

In-Home Support has been Catholic Charities’ cornerstone service to the elderly since its inception in 1993. Licensed by the Kansas Department of Health and the Environment as a Home Health Agency, this program’s goal is to help keep elderly clients independent and in their own home for as long as is safely possible. In-Home Support supplies clients with a range of non-medical services including bathing assistance, light housekeeping, meal preparation and respite/sitter service.

The In-Home Support program generally serves over 325 clients each year in Johnson and Wyandotte counties. Some of these services may be available on a sliding-fee basis as funding allows.

Service Area

Catholic Community In-Home Support is licensed to provide home care services in Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas.

SERVICES & CONTACT INFORMATION

Initiating Services

Once a request for service is made, the appropriate caregiver is scheduled for the client. The Service Supervisor schedules a visit with the client and/or relatives to discuss the individual needs of the client, further assess the care and situation, and develop a written care plan. Supervisory visits and follow-up phone calls by the office assure client satisfaction.

Payment for Services

Catholic Community In-Home Support services are billed directly to the client on a monthly basis. Some long-term care insurance policies may pay for these services. Medicare never pays for hourly In-Home Support. Catholic Community In-Home Support is unique in Kansas City in that we offer faith-based, sliding scale rates according to economic need, as funds from grants and donations allow.
