Hospice of Central PA
Care. Comfort. Remembrance.

The Hospice of Central PA is looking for veterans who want to make a difference for fellow veterans in end of life care. In our Veteran-To-Veteran support program, veteran volunteers are assigned to visit veteran hospice patients to provide comfort and companionship.

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 can learn how to accompany and guide them through their life stories towards a more peaceful ending.

Veteran-to-Veteran volunteers are trained as patient support hospice volunteers, to know the needs at the end of life, and receive further education on our veterans' unique needs at the end of life. These volunteers are also welcome to participate in HCP's veteran community events and pinning ceremonies to show our gratitude towards veteran patients.

About Hospice of Central PA

Mission Statement

To provide the highest quality of emotional, physical and spiritual support with compassion and respect.

Description

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). In addition, we enjoy a broad range of support from individuals, corporations, churches, private foundations and other organizations.
