YOU can make a difference!
Hospice volunteers perform important and rewarding work, no matter where or how they choose to serve. Our patients and their families benefit from the time and one-on-one attention that our supportive volunteers provide.
Veteran-To-Veteran Support Volunteers:
In partnership with the "We Honor Vets" campaign, we are striving to provide a program focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement. By recognizing the unique needs of America's veterans and their families, community providers, in partnership with Veteran's Affairs staff, will learn how to accompany and guide them through their life stories towards a more peaceful ending.
Veteran-to-Veteran volunteers are trained not only as patient support hospice volunteers, who know the needs at the end of life, but they also receive further education on our veterans unique needs at the end of life.
Veteran-to-Veteran volunteers can provide companionship to a fellow veteran, play cards or a board game, provide support through active listening or even accompany a fellow veteran to lunch.
About Hospice of Central Pennsylvania
1320 Linglestown Rd, Harrisburg, PA 17110, US
To provide the highest quality of emotional, physical and spiritual support with compassion and respect.
HCP envisions a community that embraces specialized care at the end of life with the same importance that is given at the beginning of life. Started by a small group of individuals in 1979 concerned about care for the dying, our agency was one of the pioneers of the hospice concept nationwide and the first hospice in Central Pennsylvania. In the mid 1990’s we responded to patients requiring more support than they could get a home, but who still wished to remain in a home-like setting. We opened Carolyn's House, HCP’s hospice residence in Harrisburg in 1996. This six bed residence, located on a serene, wooded setting, is the first and only stand-alone hospice residential facility in Central Pennsylvania. Our caring and supportive staff and volunteers serve all of Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry and Schuylkill Counties. We also serve northern York County and areas of Adams and Lebanon Counties. Hospice of Central PA is an independent non-profit, community based organization. We work closely with hospitals and other health care facilities. Our agency is a United Way Program Partner with United Way of the Capital Region (www.uwcr.org) and United Way of Carlisle and Cumberland County (www.carlisleunitedway.org). We also receive funding from the Carlisle Area Health and Wellness Foundation (www.cahwf.org). In addition, we enjoy a broad range of support from individuals, corporations, churches, private foundations and other organizations.
We'll work with your schedule.
