Northcare Hospice and Palliative Care

NorthCare Hospice & Palliative Care provides compassionate, state-of-the-art hospice care for people facing a wide range of end-stage illnesses. Their patients are eligible for hospice services when their goal is comfort care rather than curative care. NorthCare serves all or part of the following counties in Missouri: Cass, Clay, Clinton, Jackson, Platte and Ray. Serve KC volunteers provide lunch for the patients' families to allow them to spend as much time as possible with their loved ones who are nearing the end of their lives. NorthCare Hospice doesn't have a stove; they have a microwave only. NorthCare has 16 patient rooms but it is difficult to get an accurate count.
