Village Shalom traces its lineage to 1902 when a small contingent of Orthodox Jews met in a Kansas City storeroom to discuss care for the elderly. Ten years later, their vision began to assume tangible form with the chartering of the Moshav Zkeinim Home for the Aged Society in 1912. In 1919, a 14-room house at 29th and Troost was donated to the society by an oil magnate named Herman Appleman. What followed was the Michael Appleman Home for Aged Jews – a home that would serve Kansas City’s Jewish elders for more than 30 years.
Our mission is to nurture the physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being of every individual whom we are privileged to serve, inspired by our heritage as a Jewish-sponsored continuing-care retirement community. Our vision is to enable senior adults to flourish in a safe, caring, compassionate community.
Honor, Provide, Respect, Foster, Uphold and Pursue. These values are our promise to our residents, families, staff and the entire Kansas City community.

Independent living residents are entitled to our $60,000 per-person healthcare benefit. This means should you ever need to move from independent living to one of our healthcare accomodations of the campus – assisted living, skilled nursing or memory care – there will be a benefit in place to help lower your cost of care. The $60,000 Healthcare Benefit works like long-term care insurance – providing a $1,000 per month discount on the additional care areas of our campus for up to five years. You may never need the continuous care we provide, but you’ll sure have peace of mind knowing it’s there.
illage Shalom provides numerous amenities right on campus to simplify the lives of our residents and provide convenient alternatives to going out for errands.
