In 2009, Hearts at Home was founded by a local husband and wife team. As community members and senior care providers, they built the agency on the belief that the only way to provide the best care is to really get to know and listen to the people you serve and those who love them. They created a culture of reassurance that extends to all who know and work with our team. Our goal is to help our clients stay safe wherever they call home while helping them maintain individuality, independence, dignity, and connection with others.
Hearts at Home seeks to provide the highest level of service, expertise, and safety to the older adults, disabled persons, families, and community we serve through compassionate, personalized, reliable, and attentive senior care in Kansas City and the surrounding communities.
Hearts at Home is a proud member of the Kansas City Regional Home Care Association (KCRHCA), an organization that works closely with state and national associations to advocate for home care recipients and issues that benefit and protect them. KCRHCA believes that in-home care is an essential element in the continuum of quality health care and works to enhance and build upon our strong regional home care community.
