||As Pennsylvania’s first home health agency to become a Medicare-certified hospice, we’ve been partnering with physicians for over 40 years to meet the needs of patients coping with a chronic or life-limiting illness.
Our advance practice nurses, therapists, social workers, and specially-trained hospice staff develop a plan to provide treatment, support, personal care, and a number of specialized services for both the patient and family. Hospice staff is available
24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week for:
- Symptom and pain management

- Volunteer and grief support
Care is available in personal residence, nursing facility, hospital or assisted living/personal care home.

How can we help you?
We treat the person, not the disease.
The hospice team of specialists builds a unique partnership with patients and is comprised of healthcare professionals, all of whom address the medical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of the patient and family.
We emphasize quality of life.
Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice affirms life and regards dying as a normal process
We consider the entire family, not just the patient.
Patients and their families are included in the decision-making process and bereavement counseling is provided to the family after the death of their loved one for 13 months. Upon request, clergy assists the patient and family with the emotional and spiritual aspects of end-of-life. Our hospice volunteers provide support to patients and their families. They can assist with daily activities to enhance the quality of life for patients and help relieve some of the demands that are often placed on caregivers.
