Comforting In-Home Palliative Care Services for Seniors in Carlisle, Gettysburg, Chambersburg and Surrounding PA Communities

Our Certified Palliative Care Program is designed to tend to physical, emotional, social as well as spiritual needs of our clients in Carlisle, Gettysburg. Chambersburg and surrounding areas in Pennsylvania. Unlike hospice care, palliative services are about providing care and support regardless of one’s life expectancy.

Contrary to popular belief, palliative and hospice care are two different services, even though they share a lot of similarities. They are both designed to relieve pain and discomfort, but hospice care is reserved for seniors who are nearing the end of life.

At Visiting Angels Carlisle, our palliative home care services are a significant part of our Life Care Navigation collection of senior care services. This collection also includes end of life care, which can provide your loved one with assistance and comfort they need during the end of life process.
