In-Home Care Kansas City

From temporary assistance to long-term care, we provide reliable support through a custom in-home care plan unique to your family’s situation and specific needs.

As loved ones get older, most do not want to never leave the comfort and familiarity of their own home. Depending on health and needs, keeping a senior parent safe and comfortable in their home can be a difficult responsibility for a family to bear. Situations like these are what we are perfectly suited for. Providing reliable and compassionate in-home care support to your family as you hope to keep your loved one happy and healthy in their own home.

Being one of the first to specialize in providing in-home care services through custom care plans, we have been uniquely supporting seniors living safely and comfortably for many years. We understand your loved one’s situation, their personality, and their likes and dislikes are most likely different than someone else’s. Taking this approach with each person we provide in-home care for helps us know the right questions to ask during the in-home assessment with you, your family, and the person(s) we’ll be caring for. These questions help us develop our recommendations for a custom care plan unique to your family and your loved one. This plan includes considerations like day-to-day routines, long-term goals, and ambitions.

Depending on your family’s unique in-home care needs, our custom home care plans often include some level of these different home care services:


Personal Care Services:

Bathing, Grooming and Hygiene Guidance

We assist with tasks like general bathing, oral and dental hygiene, shampooing and/or styling hair, filing and/or cleaning nails, and getting dressed. This can be part of our daily personal care in-home care services or a separate service of a morning “wake-up” or getting ready for bedtime “tuck-in”.

Wake-up/Tuck-in

Our 24/7 In-Home Care is for families requiring caregivers to be fully engaged for 24 hours without a rest or break. We accommodate these needs by offering several solutions for families: one caregiver for a 24 hour period relieved by another 24 hour caregiver or different caregivers visiting for shorter times. Situational examples may include: Family out of town, coming home from rehabilitation or hospital stay, or a need for more constant assistance.

Mobility Assistance

We provide mobility assistance in getting to the sitting/standing position and from room to room. This process is done keeping in mind final placement as well as the actual moving, for instance, watching pressure points and/or sore areas, plus posture for breathing and digestion. We also track progress and notify proper contacts if condition is worsening or changing.

Medication Reminders

We develop a reminder system for medications and prescription refills. But do not fill/refill medication boxes or administer medications. According to both Kansas and Missouri State Law, only trained and licensed Certified Nursing Assistants, Certified Medical Assistants, Certified Medical Technicians, Registered Nurses, Physicians Assistants, etc. are able to help a family member with medications.

Toileting and Incontinence Care

This type of personal care is handled with the utmost sensitivity to your loved one’s situation and needs.

Feeding and/or Special Diets

In many cases the person needing in-home care may not be able/ready to feed themselves. We are conscious of the emotional difficulty this can create and strive to make it an engaging social situation. At the same time, we are cognizant of special diet demands of each specific situation. For example, those with a long-term dietary issue such as diabetes versus someone recovering from a stroke.


Household Help Services:

Errands and Household Duties

These include and are not limited to grocery shopping, shopping in general, trips to the post office, or picking up prescriptions. We will also help in organizing mail, extracting coupons, bill paying, etc.

Light Housekeeping

We manage the particulars of keeping the home running smoothly: vacuuming, dusting, mopping, washing floors, cleaning interior windows (without a ladder), cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, trash removal), changing linens and/or making beds, caring for house plants, taking trash out, re-organizing closets and drawers, and helping with any organization/clean up to make a safer, more convenient living environment.

Light Gardening

For those loved ones that get joy out of a nice garden, we help with watering, planting pots, light weeding, and sweeping walkways.

Laundry & Ironing

This can be done in home or taken to a facility of the family’s choice. All laundry is done according to personal preferences.

Meal Preparation

Preparing meals can be an engaging and learning process for families. We are able to make, supply or help families prepare nutritious, hot and/or cold meals.

Incidental Transportation

We’ll provide transportation to get those receiving in-home care services to their daily living appointments. Examples may include: salon/barber appointments, doctor appointments, shopping, and social engagements.

Managing Contractors/Service Calls

Whether these are typical/seasonal maintenance calls, emergency issues, or if a family is preparing a life long home for sale, we can assist with the organization and management involved with these matters. We are trustworthy advocates and can arrange details on the family’s behalf.


Companion Care Services:

Conversation and Companionship

This may be in the home or in the community. We help the families we care for stay involved, and if physically able we get them to any and all activities they are able to attend. We help find new topics and activities that may be of interest too – which may include card and board games, puzzles and/or simply one-on-one conversations.

Hospital or Rehabilitation Visits

This could be personal visits to keep those receiving in-home care services from being “a bed” in the hospital and/or be an advocate when family can’t be there. We will be there for personal company, communication with hospital staff, entertainment, meal assistance, and/or household help.

Exercise and/or Wellness Activities

Maybe you already have an established routine or therapy instructions. If the weather is pleasant and allows for a walk, we will be there for you promoting exercise and wellness activities. We think working out is always more fun, and safer, with a caregiver.

Meals and/or Social Engagements

We keep our families involved in the community and everyday life by helping them go to their outings, dinners, events, community center activities, church socials, etc.

Communication with Family and Friends

If physical ailments limit communication, we are available to assist with phone calls, Skype calls, Facetime, email, written correspondence, etc. This can be a great added care service if you have difficulty getting your family member to understand or trying communication on the computer through Facebook, Email, Skype, Facetime, etc.


Live-in Care Services:

Our Live-in Services provide a tailored approach for families requiring more consistent or round-the-clock help. We will be on site (live in the home) for daily in-home care service delineated by the family. Situational examples may include: Family out of town, coming home from rehabilitation or hospital stays, or a need for more constant assistance. Live-in services establish immediate comfort and safety in the home, and offer families not close to the person receiving care peace of mind.


24/7 In-Home Care Services:

Our 24/7 In-Home Care is for families requiring caregivers to be fully engaged for 24 hours without a rest or break. We accommodate these needs by offering several solutions for families: one caregiver for a 24 hour period relieved by another 24 hour caregiver or different caregivers visiting for shorter times. Situational examples may include: Family out of town, coming home from rehabilitation or hospital stay, or a need for more constant assistance.
