What is Hospice Care?

Hospice & Community Care provides medical, emotional and spiritual support for individuals and families who are coping with a life-limiting illness. Hospice care focuses on comfort for individuals of all ages with any serious illness who have weeks or months rather than years to live.  

Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury, hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. Support is provided to the patient’s loved ones as well. At the center of hospice and palliative care is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so.

Hospice care may be provided at home, in a senior care facility, hospital, or at the Bob Fryer & Family Inpatient Center.

For more information, call (717) 391-2421.

"Your response time, compassion, caring understanding and communications were second to none. The care you gave to our mother was superb. Although it was a blessing for our mother, it also provided much needed support for our family."

"I didn’t know how to help my poor mom. Hospice came within 15 hours of me calling them. They were calm when I was so scared. It made me feel that things would be okay, that dying is a natural part of life. I am so grateful that they were part of our journey."
