Worry-free Senior Living

Prospective Residents

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 each individual by providing comfort emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually.

Located in the heart of Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, the Home, which was established in 1927, is the oldest personal care facility in the area. Originally occupied by three women, by the mid-50s, there were six women in the 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, meaningful relationships.

As a non-profit home, the quality of care is never compromised. With a minimal staff turnover rate, our residents build trusting relationships with their personal care providers. The Home employs nurses, cooks, and aides. We have a number of volunteers who 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 that assists residents with day-to-day tasks like administering medications, meals, transportation to appointments, laundry services, housekeeping, daily planned activities, and much more. We have a strict no discrimination policy in our operating and admissions procedures. Everyone is welcome at the Home.
