Midland Care

Who We Are

In 1978, Hospice Inc. of Topeka was formed by St. Francis Hospital Volunteers. The First office, located at 1615 SW 8th, was opened two years later. In 1983, an agreement was made with the Shawnee County Health Agency, the name was changed to Friends of Hospice Inc., & the office moved to 824 Washburn. Purchase of the historic Chester Woodward home, located at 1272 SW Fillmore, took place in 1990. The following year, the name was changed to Midland Hospice Care, Inc. and we became Hospice Medicare Certified. In 1992, Midland Adult Day Programs started out of the Topeka office and we merged with Osage County Hospice. Two years later, we merged with Southview Hospice in Ottawa and moved the Topeka office to its current location at 200 SW Frazier Circle (the old Menninger's Children's Home). The Hospice House (NE Kansas' only free-standing residential hospice) opened in the year 1999, as did the Midland Education Center and The Grief Counseling Center. The Midland Crossroads Palliative Care Program began in 2002. The year following, our office in Lawrence was opened. PACE services began in 2007, providing inclusive care for the elderly. The Midland Respite Center provides patient care both day and night and is located in Building B and Building C on the Topeka campus. "Findables" Resale Shop (Gage Center) provides upscale clothing at very reasonable prices and recruits volunteers for the organization. In 2008 Youth Corps (a youth volunteer program) began. In 2010, major renovations occurred - a new kitchen in building C, remodeled education center and new parking lot (building A). 2010 also was the opening of Adult Day Health at 319 Perry in Lawrence. In 2012, continuing to improve our offerings to the community, Midland Care opened up to 18 hospice beds in building C and initiated the new name: "The House At Midland Care."

What We Do

Midland Care enhances life's journey by offering care and education with respect, dignity, and hope. Midland Care recognizes dying as a normal process and believes that an individual is entitled to actively participate in this process. The hospice philosophy affirms life. It strives neither to hasten nor to postpone death, but exists in the hope and belief that through appropriate care and the support of a caring community; terminally ill patients can live fully until death. Hospice strives to support the family members before a loved one's death and during the mourning period.
