Mission: Jacobs Well of Kansas City envisions a society where all individuals are valued as contributing members of society. It is our mission to restore those who have been broken or shattered and give them aim, give them hope, give them purpose.
Programs: The Carousel is a medical model adult day health program.It is a community based-alternative to institutional care. Through the services and supports provided by the Carousel, individuals who are elderly or adults who have a disability can choose to remain in their own homes or stay connected to their families. Daily, each participant receives an individualized care plan which includes nursing care, wound care, diabetic care, hygiene and grooming just to name a few. Each participant receives breakfast, lunch and after noon snack, hair care, personal hygiene and grooming and they are taken on outings such as to the museum, horse back riding, bowling, etc. Individuals attending the center are those who qualify for a nursing home level of care; however, through our supports premature institutionalization is delayed or prevented.
