When it’s your parent or loved one needing a bit of help each day, your first instinct may be to try to resolve the issues on your own. But after helping with housekeeping, shopping, cooking and driving, you may find that your loved one needs something more.
Our cross-trained team of professionals combine refined skills, extensive experience and absolute compassion, so residents feel at home right away. We pay personal attention to every individual, and we honor the personal narratives that have been woven into the fabric of their lives. As your most unique assisted living option anywhere in Greater Kansas City, The Piper creates an atmosphere that invites social interaction and engagement in life, with just the right amount of support. Residents always come first.
Privacy meets community.
Residents have their own beautiful apartment home that includes a kitchenette, bedroom, living area, bathroom and washer/dryer. But their home also includes a lovely open kitchen and family room, dining room, living room, den and sunroom. It truly is a “home within a home.” The Piper has six such unique households.
You’ll find personalized entrances to private apartments, not long hallways with plain doors leading into small rooms. You’ll see residents gathered around a wooden dining table chatting while a homemaker whips up eggs to order in an attractive kitchen, not meals served from metal carts in a massive dining room. It just takes one visit for family and friends to realize the difference a household makes.

This service is characterized by a distinct combination of individualized care, familiar neighborhood surroundings and professional expertise. Residents enjoy a private apartment within each unique household at The Piper, and are assured of levels of care that address their specific needs. All meals, housekeeping and utilities are included. Our licensed team assists with daily tasks as needed, and the many community amenities available in assisted living help residents more easily enjoy what matters most to them.
Start with an evaluation of the situation. Do you want your loved one to continue to prepare all their meals? Would you feel more comfortable knowing there is always help available? Depending on the circumstances, you can match needs to the right level of assistance.

Trained professionals provide this assistance while helping preserve an individual’s independence.
