Midland Care is expanding their services to better serve Topeka. The hospice center announced they raised six-million dollars to house their Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).
The money will also go to renovating their current location. Some of the donation comes from local organizations, such as the Capitol Federal Foundation.
The president of Midland, Karren Weichert, said this new building will help the city, as well as another local organization.
“The new building will actually benefit may people,” Weichert said. “Hundreds of people everyday. Because we serve about a thousand meals a day through Meals on Wheels. And all of the meals will be prepared there. It will also serve as the PACE center, which is, again, our Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly. The improvements that we’re going to be making to the hospice house are very exciting for us. and just ensure that we’ll be able to really share that journey with people for many, many years to come.”
The new building will have a gym, an adult day care, as well as a clinic for their elderly patients. The center will also become the new kitchen for Meals on Wheels. The location of the new center has not been announced yet.
