Why Jacob's
Ladder

The sad truth is that although the majority of Americans want to die at home, only half are able to do as they wish. Others fall into the gap created by intermittent medical hospice care and caregivers juggling the physical, mental, social and financial demands of round-the-clock final days care. 

We believe everyone has a universal right to personalized end-of-life care in a comfortable setting they can call home. Our social model end-of-life care home fills a void in caregiving for dying patients who cannot be cared for in the comfort of their home.

Jacob’s Ladder End of Life Legacy Home serves to ease the caregiver burden and become a loving home and family for people in need by providing terminally ill patients with a full time residence and nonmedical comfort care, while medical management needs are met by area hospices. This patient-centered cooperative care approach results in high quality, complete end-of-life care for those who can no longer remain in their home, yet deserve compassionate care and a peaceful death in comfortable surroundings.

Help Create a Model of End-of-Life Care

We envision a future where people and families have the expectation of dying well — in comfort, with dignity and supported by experts and compassionate care. You can be part of the movement to improve end-of-life experience for individuals and families in Southwest Missouri. We welcome monetary donations, along with goods and services in support of our home for the dying. Your generosity provides essential care for a good death.

Testimonials

“My mother got almost individual attention and was loved by the staff and got anything that she wanted and needed. Even down to her passing she was still treated as a person, and not just a body laying in bed

The staff was so caring and patient with the residents, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I would highly recommend this facility or any of their services to all that would have this need.”

Linda Buchanan

“The care there was exceptional. My mother was there for a few months and was very well cared for. The staff were always quick to respond to her needs. She was provided fresh homemade meals everyday. They saw to her personal hygiene care at all times.

I would not hesitate to place a loved one in this facility.”
