Oxford HealthCare: 40 Years of Bringing Health Care Home

Oxford HealthCare is proud to celebrate 40 years of bringing health care home! This milestone could not have been reached without the support of physicians, patients and families who trust us to provide quality home care and hospice services. Since 1974, it’s been our privilege to serve our clients in their home, and we look forward to continuing that tradition of excellence for years to come.

Helping You Stay Independent at Home

We all want to live life to the fullest. But when health issues start to interfere, what do you do? As a full service home care and hospice provider, we assist people of all ages to remain active and independent in their home. We provide as much, or as little, care as you need and are flexible to make changes as your loved one’s condition changes. Since 1974 we have developed more home care services and programs than any other agency in southwest and central Missouri. From round-the-clock care to short-term care, we offer a variety of home care services to meet your needs. Our staff is dedicated to developing one-on-one relationships with clients, helping them feel confident and comfortable in their own home. You can view the full list of the services we provide, or call one of our specially-trained Care Coordinators who will help you develop a plan tailored for you. Staying in control of your health is important. We have the solutions to help you achieve that goal.
