Mission Statement

The mission of Hospice of Central Pennsylvania is to provide the terminally ill of Central Pennsylvania and their families with compassion, dignity and care through the coordinated delivery of emotional, physical and spiritual support of the highest quality.

Description

Hospice of Central Pennsylvania is a non-profit, community-based agency meeting the special needs of terminally ill patients and their families by offering emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual support. We provide compassionate care when there is no cure.

Our goals are to enhance quality of life through symptom management, pain control, peace of mind, emphasis on dignity and personal choices, education about end of life issues and access to services.

Hospice care is provided by an interdisciplinary team which includes physicians, nurses, social workers, home health aides, counselor, chaplain, bereavement counselors, and specially trained volunteers. We coordinate other therapies and community resources as needed.

Hospice care is provided wherever the patient calls home, such as a nursing home, assisted living facility, our hospice residence, the patient's own home, or the home of a loved-one.
