Respite

Caregivers need a break to be refreshed and renewed, like a tall glass of refreshing water renews the body. That is why we call our Respite Care our Water Break Ministry.

Errands and Transportation

As part of our faith-based mission to enrich the lives of homebound seniors, KSC offers affordable, dependable, friendly, and safe transportation for our KSC In-Home Care senior friends.  There will be a time for each of us when the risks of driving outweigh the benefits.  Safety for our seniors and for others on the road is a serious mater.  As a community we must offer high-risk seniors transportation options that make being chauffeured a more appealing and preferred alternative while keeping them connected to our community.  At KSC we believe it’s the journey, not just the destination that matters.  For KSC’s senior passengers, it means going the extra mile by:

  • * offering to take notes in their medical appointment
  • * giving them a bottled water to help keep them hydrated
  • * texting their family member to let them know they have safely arrived at their destination and/or back home
  • * surprising them with a flower or a Blessing Gift
  • * calling them on their birthday
  • * praying for them and the situations they share

The car conversations and the friendships formed are special.  Our senior passengers receive supportive door-through-door service and are treated with honor and respect.  The drivers are blessed knowing they have made a difference in someone’s life with simple acts of kindness in Jesus’ name.

Currently we are limited to our KSC In-Home Care seniors.  Occasionally we transport additional west side homebound seniors to appointments. This depends on if volunteer drivers are available.  Donations to the ministry are accepted for transportation appreciation.  For more information or to become a volunteer driver, contact KSC at 316-209-9028.

NOTE: We are looking to add a wheelchair accessible van to accommodate those seniors who are not ambulatory.  When funds are collected to purchase this specialized van, we will update this information!

Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips.

“Thank you for taking such great care with our patient.  We value your partnership and admire what you’re doing for our community.”
Sincerely,

 
Tina and Bette   

Thank you so much for all the food you brought over to us. It was great not to have to think about dinner. Our bruises are fading! Thanks also for bringing the carolers, they brought a lot of cheer...thank you for the pretty poinsettia, too.

Love,

 
Karen   

Your helpers are wonderful. I treasure them.

 
Sauder family   

The family would like to thank Koinonia Senior Care for the compassionate assistance Norm received from Christine, Sharlet, Bunnie and Emma. He hired you to be his “cooks” but you became dear friends and your help made it possible for him to live independently in his home.

 
Mrs. N   

Your visit not only made my day, but also my Christmas, too....The girls...have come several times and always bearing gifts....You don't know how thrilled I am, that my 4th grader still remembers me. There's no greater gift for a teacher....thanks for being so thoughtful!

Fondly,

 
Mark and family   

Koinonia Senior Care serves a needy and deserving group of seniors who have often outlived their support or fall victim to lack of support from those who have become "too busy." Your group's care for our parents was critical in maintaining their quality of life through love and care...Thanks again for all you do and the Spirit of Christ's love in your service.

 
Delbert & Joy   

Thank you for the thoughtful gift of Peppernuts. Truly appreciated knowing the reasoning behind the gift. It was so gracious of Mary F. to bring it by; with a delicious lunch.

Love,

 
Sharlet   

Christine,
Thank you for your kindness, information and assistance at a time when I needed it so very much. Dad and I both think you are a very special person fulfilling a special mission.

 
D'Annette   

My life would have been so different these past five years if it weren't for the ministry of Koinonia. Thank you for the many countless ways KSC ministered to my mom, and therefore, me.

 
Maude   

The Premier Designs "Heaven" necklace is so well thought out and was certainly an "appropriate" gift from you--thanks so much!

Dear Gwendolyn and all of your helpers,
I wanted to send a note to thank you so much for the Easter Lily plant, the sweet familiar hymn, the thoughtful egg with the prayer quilt, and the visit from the kindest Ann. It really means a lot to us to be thought of. We miss attending Sunday services at our home campus so much, but we do enjoy attending the online service each Sunday morning.

I know it takes a lot

I know it takes a lot of time, work, nad planning to do something like this. WE wanted to let you know how much you all are appreciated for your kindness. You all are very special.

The January KSC Connection is an absolute saver!! I especially love the chosen scripture verses for 2020. Trust me it really speaks to us who have hurting backs, legs, knees, feet - whatever! Keep up the Lord's work and my thanks to all involved.

 
Jack & Jean   

Thank you for all you have done for us. I could not have made it through this initial period without your love, concern and most of all your prayers. I am sure I will need your love as time passes on.

God blessed Jack & I when he put you in our life.

We want to express our appreciation for KSC. It truly is labor of love. I can't tell you what it means to have His light shining in our home each time someone comes. It fills me with the sweet aroma of Christ. Thank you for all your labor as you do so much. the blesing gifts are such a thoughtful personal touch. We loved reading the recent matters of the heart. Our caregivers are such a gift.

 
DM   

The neglect (of seniors) is unintentional but so painful. And preventable. As always, it just takes a small heart change, but those are so difficult to accomplish and maintain. Your reminders and nudges are gentle and positive and needed!

 
Teresa   

Thank you so much for taking Richard to get his vaccine!! You are a tremendous help and blessing!!

 
Gwendolyn   

The support Koinonia has provided is evident by how much calmer and less frustrated she seemed going into this set back. I love how you communicate with the care givers.

I really enjoy receiving the newsletters and seeing what the ministry is up to and just the stories that you guys share. It's so enlightening. Thank you for all that you guys do!

 
Don and Phyllis   

We want to thank you for the loving care you have given our parents over these last months. You have enabled them to stay in their home for much longer than they could on their own. Thank you for your love, thoughtfulness, patience, gentleness, and professionalism. You are like family to them and us!

There is a reason that grandparents seem to be the most loved family members. They have been the foundation, the constant source of encouragement, wisdom and love to those who call them by the coveted title “grandparent”. They have done so much for their families, for our communities, our world and our churches.

We all have a God-given responsibility to help encourage and care for those who have been the founding builders in our lives. I encourage you to partner with Koinonia Senior Care and help make a difference in the lives of those who have made a difference in all of our lives.
