Life At The Piper
Get comfortable. You’re home.
Home is more than an address; it’s a feeling. Home means having the freedom to do whatever you choose, while feeling safe and secure. Home means having your favorite things around you—photographs of people you love, books and mementos you cherish, and chocolate ice cream in the freezer. It’s the comfort of being in your own space and the freedom to simply be yourself.
The Piper is designed with The Household Model, a philosophy designed to replace traditional facility floor plans and way of life. The unique environment honors privacy, fosters interpersonal relationships and promotes a quality lifestyle. For seniors who need support, The Piper provides the ability to live your life as you want, with the care of experienced staff who get to know individual preferences. We believe that residents should be afforded the respect, courtesy and care that everyone deserves. Residents at The Piper feel this every day. The Piper has redefined senior living services in the Kansas City metro with a unique approach to care.

”I like knowing that staff members are permanently assigned to each household. I like seeing the same faces all the time, and so does Mom. I also like the fact that staff members are cross-trained, and everyone just pitches in and does what needs to be done.”
”What I find so interesting here at The Piper is this neighborhood or household concept. It’s so much more homey than regular nursing home institutions. I also think the people they’ve hired really get it. They understand. The Piper has hired right and they’ve trained right.”
”From the moment I walked in, I felt instantly at ease. I really believe The Piper is something special. They seem to understand that people are individuals, and can’t be expected to live and behave in exactly the same way, on exactly the same schedule. I know of nothing else like it in assisted living or memory care.”
