Learn More About Home Care in Kansas City, KS

 

Not to be confused with its larger, older, and more expensive twin city directly to the east — or with the upscale suburbs throughout Johnson County to the south — Kansas City, Kansas stretches from the Missouri state line all the way out to the Kansas Speedway, about 20 miles westward. This expansive size gives KCK a wide variety of living options. Residents of historic neighborhoods like Strawberry Hill and Rosedale have easy access to all the urban attractions of KCMO, but just a few miles to the west, planned communities and rural life await.

Home care, or in-home care, in Kansas City is a service which offers compassion and help to seniors who need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) and wish to remain in their homes. Levels of care vary according to need, and can include companionship, meal prep, cleaning, transportation, and help with ADLs like bathing and dressing. Home care aides are trained to understand the nuances of senior care but generally aren’t licensed to provide medical services.

Cost of Home Care in Kansas City, KS

The median monthly cost of a home health aide in 2020 was about $4,600 in the Kansas City area and around $4,200 in the state of Kansas, according to Genworth. To learn more about the cost of home care in KCK, contact A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors.
