Touching More Lives Capital Campaign

Americans spend their lives and a fair amount of their money trying to outrun aging. We value youth to the point of obsession. It is reflected in our culture and our treatment of the aging population. In America, seniors live longer, but they do not always live better. When compared to other cultures, our seniors are often not given the reverence they deserve. Aging is viewed as the cost of living as opposed to the gift that it is. This changes now.

Midland Care has vowed to shift that tenet and energize our elderly and caregiver communities, ushering their life-transforming experiences out from the sidelines and into a visible, central space in our community. Midland Care’s Compass Center for Senior Independence will nourish, expand and expose the innovative ways in which they radically improve lives.

From Bleeding Kansas to Brown v Board, this state is no stranger to being the forerunner of social change. It is only fitting that Kansas leads the charge for the cultural shift in our treatment and feelings towards aging.

The community trusts Midland Care with their loved ones during some of the most sensitive and trying times of their lives. Midland Care’s passion and empathy has allowed us to create the state’s most innovative and admired hospice services. And we are poised to recreate that success during earlier seasons of life for those we serve. Midland Care’s reputation and experience make us the provider best equipped to deliver these services and create social change.

We are reaching out to the community to invest in Midland Care’s Touching More Lives Capital Campaign to renovate an existing building at 2631 SW East Circle Drive South in Topeka into a new home for our PACE and Meals on Wheels programs. This new center will free up much-needed space on our Frazier campus and allow us to further enhance and grow our services.

We believe…

At Midland Care, We believe connection is essential to sustaining a joyful and meaningful life. That is why we are building The Compass Center for Senior Independence. It helps seniors and their caregivers navigate care at various levels of need and provides a permanent home for essential services like PACE and Meals on Wheels. The center addresses social, physical and spiritual needs, improving quality of life for our aging population to keep seniors at home and independent longer, as a vital part of our community.

This health care system can be very confusing and hard to access. This is true especially for frail elders, and even more so for those with limited or no income. Many of our community elders are forced to seek nursing home care simply because they cannot afford services to help them remain safely in their own homes and neighborhoods. PACE is founded on the belief that it is better for the well-being of seniors with chronic care needs and their families to be served in the community whenever possible.

We believe our community needs PACE

This health care system can be very confusing and hard to access. This is true especially for frail elders, and even more so for those with limited or no income. Many of our community elders are forced to seek nursing home care simply because they cannot afford services to help them remain safely in their own homes and neighborhoods. PACE is founded on the belief that it is better for the well-being of seniors with chronic care needs and their families to be served in the community whenever possible.

A six million dollar renovation of this 30,000 sq. ft. building will include:

  • A beautifully designed day center for enhanced socialization.
  • Expanded clinic space enabling participants to be seen more efficiently by our doctors and clinical staff.
  • Improved, updated rehabilitative gym space where participants can receive specialized therapy and utilize the equipment they need to stay strong and healthy.

We believe Meals on Wheels is so much more than a meal

Each weekday, 1,000 hot, nutritious meals are delivered to homebound elders, people with disabilities. and local dining centers. Meals are nutritionally balanced, provide variety, and are tailored to meet special dietary needs.

For 28 years, these meals have helped clients remain independent, avoid hospitalizations, prevent premature nursing facility placements, and assist in the management of chronic illnesses. Meals on Wheels volunteers provide a daily safety check that has been proven to reduce health crises and to provide reassurance to loved ones.

In 2017, Meals on Wheels joined forces with Midland Care to streamline administrative expenses and serve more people.

A six million dollar renovation of this 30,000 sq. ft. building will include:

  • An efficient design to enhance the meal pick up process for volunteers.
  • A new commercial kitchen specifically designed to meet the needs of Meals on Wheels.
  • Our community’s first permanent home for Meals on Wheels.

*Estimates includes estimated ancillary administrative costs for the Capital Campaign
