About Compassionate Hearts
LKLP Compassionate Hearts is here to help you care for your loved ones. We offer affordable top quality daytime services to those seeking health care for their family.
LKLP Compassionate Hearts realize caregivers want better options for their loved ones. It is our mission to provide a safe and stimulating environment, offering caregivers an alternative to nursing home care, giving them the opportunity to continue their daily activities.
We understand that, for many, this is their first experience away from their homes and family. That is why we take personal interest in each person...helping him or her make an easy transition right from the start. For the caregivers, we take great strides to make sure you have a smooth, worry-free transition and we make sure your concerns and questions are answered.
LKLP Compassionate Hearts staff consist of activities personnel, CNA's and a social worker. There is also an RN or LPN on site at all times. Our nurses can administer medication, monitor vital signs, arrange for medication pick up or delivery and provide wound care. We also assist clients with personal hygeine and grooming needs. We provide games, arts and crafts, excercise and various recreational activities on a daily basis. Clients are provided with a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks.
Family visits to our facility are always welcome! A visit to our center may help you and your loved one feel more at ease. We encourage you to get to know us, tour our facility, and ask any questions. During your visit, we can evaluate the assistance needed and any special care your loved one may require.

Compassionate Hearts Program Highlights
LKLP’s adult day program is entering its 9th year of service at this time. Nine years ago the adult day program, operated by Horizon at that time, was in the process of closing its doors. This move would’ve left many individuals and families in Perry and surrounding counties without a much needed adult day health care service. Over the past nine years, LKLP’s Compassionate Hearts Adult Day Health Center has enrolled a total of 150 adults from 5 counties in our program. We have provided daily supervision, nutritious meals, medication administration, wound care, showers, and therapeutic activities on a daily basis to our clients, with the goal of prolonging, or altogether preventing, placement in a long term care facility.
We have enrolled clients who have only needed adult day services for a few weeks, as well as clients who have been enrolled in the program now for over 10 years. Several of our clients are able to safely live independently with the services they receive from adult day care. Many other clients live with family members or caregivers. For these family members, having their loved one attend adult day care means they are able to work and meet their daily routines, knowing their loved one is being cared for in their absence. For all, it means being able to go home at the end of each day.
We employee a very caring, compassionate staff who always go the extra mile to ensure client’s needs are met. Sometimes this means sitting with a client for hours at the emergency room until a family member is able to meet them there. Other times, it means obtaining and delivering food boxes or clothing to a client and family in need. Many times it involves patiently waiting for clients to complete a basic task, instead of jumping in and doing it for them, which would further take away their independence. In every situation, clients are welcomed to the home-like atmosphere of the center, where their quality of life is of utmost importance and their daily needs are met in a caring, compassionate manner.
If you know of anyone who may benefit from adult day health care, contact the center at (606) 436-8700 for more information.
