About Us

The Episcopal Home, a part of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania, is an affordable residence providing personal care while allowing residents to live as independently as possible. We meet the needs of the total person by providing comfort emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually.

 

Small Enough To Care

Established in 1927, the Home is the oldest personal care facility in the Shippensburg area. Originally occupied by three women, by the mid-50’s, there were six women in residence. In 1959, the first addition was added, allowing space for up to 22 residents and for the first time, men. The latest addition to The Home was built in 1999 which brought capacity to 32 full-time residents. The small number of residents enables the staff, volunteers, residents and their families and friends to develop close, friendly relationships.

A non-profit home, the quality of care is never compromised. Our staff turnover rate is minimal, allowing residents to build trusting relationships with their care providers. The Home employs nurses, cooks, and aides. We also enjoy having a number of volunteers who are willing to help with activities and special events. The Home is centrally located in Shippensburg. Many residents still attend their home church and maintain memberships in nearby civic organizations.

The Home is a personal care facility where residents receive assistance with medications, daily living tasks, meals, transportation to physician appointments, laundry services, housekeeping, and daily planned activities. We have a strict no discrimination policy in our operating and admissions procedures. All denominations are welcome.

We are located in the heart of Shippensburg, Pennsylvania at 206 East Burd Street. Schedule your tour today!
