Get to Know GoodLife
High-quality care for persons with disabilities is important.
Your loved one needs everyday assistance yet wants independence. Since you can’t always be by their side, you want peace of mind knowing they are in capable and compassionate hands. Like you, we want your loved ones with disabilities to live in an inclusive and supportive community.
We provide a full spectrum of community-based supports across the lifespan of need for more than 500 individuals in the state of Kansas. The goal of GoodLife’s services is to empower people to live as independently as possible regardless of their level of needed support.
We’re excited to share GoodLife with you.
