Mercy House of Chambersburg provides comfort-based, compassionate care for guests at the end of life.
Mercy House is designed for and focused on comfort care at the end of life. Individualized round-the-clock care is provided in the community home setting by a dedicated team of trained caregivers and volunteers. As an independent nonprofit, Mercy House partners with area hospice agencies, which manage patient clinical treatment. Mercy House provides a haven of compassionate care when a lack of caregivers and resources prevent a peaceful death at home, and is proud to be part of the movement to improve the end-of-life experience for individuals and families in our community.
Our Mission is to offer comfort-based personal, emotional, and spiritual care to guests; to provide support for families and friends of guests; and to coordinate community education, engagement, and involvement.
The purpose is to provide an alternative for end-of-life care for terminally ill individuals who choose not to, or cannot, remain in their home or living environment until death. Amidst the growing caregiver crisis in end-of-life care and the inadequate resources of the healthcare system, Mercy House will be a haven of support for people in need.
Mercy House will provide quality care by focusing on the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of dying individuals through the end-of-life process and will be recognized in the region for this much-needed service, as well as for meaningful follow-up services for family and friends, community outreach, and strong volunteer engagement.
