Home Care Agencies in Topeka, KS

Home care, or in-home care, 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, and 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.

The median monthly cost of in-home care is around $4,195 in Topeka and $6,175 in the state of Kansas, according to Genworth.

A Place for Mom’s local Senior Living Advisors can help you find the perfect home care provider in Topeka, KS for you or your loved one.

Topeka tends to lean slightly conservative. Although a majority of the city’s residents voted for Republican candidates in the last five presidential elections, Republicans won this majority by less than 10 percent. State, county, and city governments employ a fourth of all workers in Topeka, as the city is home to the Kansas Statehouse. Manufacturing, construction, and retail trades also stand out as major industries.

BlueCross BlueShield of Kansas, a health insurance company, is headquartered in Topeka.

Topeka, KS has a significant Hispanic and Latino population. Residents founded El Centro de Topeka, which empowers the community through crucial resources. The Community Resource Program strives to bridge the gap for residents with limited English comprehension, and employs a fully-bilingual staff. The Mobile Health Clinic, a partner of the Washburn School of Nursing, aims to make healthcare more accessible and transparent for this population. Additionally, the Latino Leadership Collective amplifies Latino voices in business, and advocates for high-level representation across the city’s leading companies.

Topeka proudly showcases the city’s Black history as well. The state made history as the site of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case, which ruled that “separate but equal” policies violated the U.S. Constitution. The city preserves Monroe Elementary School, which integrated due to this decision, as a commemorative museum.

Topeka is not considered friendly to members of the LGBTQ+ community. This means that members of the LGBTQ+ community may face discrimination in certain parts of the city. The Human Rights Campaign scored Topeka a zero out of 30 on its index for non-discrimination laws. The city does not prohibit discrimation on the basis of sexual orientation in housing or employment. In spite of this, there is some support in the area. Equality House, which has made headlines for its location directly across from Westboro Baptist Church, is an LGBTQ+ resource center and a strong visual testament to LGBTQ+ pride. PFLAG, a national body of affirming support groups for LGBTQ+ youths and parents, also has a chapter in Topeka.

Tourists and residents can glimpse the role and process of state politics and legislature with guided tours of the Kansas State Capitol Visitor Center. The Kansas Museum of History traces state events and figures from the prehistoric age to the present, with exhibits on Native American tribal culture, the Oregon and Santa Fe trails, and the state’s impact in the Civil War. The Combat Air Museum, Museum of Kansas National Guard, and Holley Museum of Military History all contain war relics, machinery, and tributes. Seniors receive discounts at many of these institutions.

The Topeka Zoo, located in Gage Park, regularly ranks as one of the city’s most popular attractions. More than 250 animals live in the zoo, which also houses an indoor tropical rain forest. Fishers, kayakers, or anyone looking to enjoy the water will appreciate Topeka’s access to both Shawnee Lake and Kaw River.
