At Homeland Hospice, our entire staff is committed to a model of care focused on providing comfort, relieving pain and offering support - including spiritual and bereavement counseling - for persons with life-limiting health conditions and their families. Our service area covers Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Fulton, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Northumberland, Perry, Schuylkill, Snyder and York counties.
Hospice is not a "place." Care is provided in whatever setting a person calls home.
Hospice care neither prolongs life nor hastens death, but focuses on improving the quality of life for the patient and family. This care occurs in the last six months of life, as certified by a physician. A patient can discontinue hospice are at any time and return to an aggressive curative treatment.
Homeland Hospice serves people of all ages, with various medical conditions. We also have a team especially trained in pediatric hospice care to meet the special needs of our youngest patients and their families.
