We tailor our services to meet your unique needs, striving to help you remain independent and comfortable, whether you are here for a short or long-term stay following surgery, injury or illness. Our services range from rehabilitation therapies and medical care to general personal care services such as nutrition and counseling. We have a handicap-accessible van to transport our residents to and from medical appointments and other related activities. Your individualized treatment plan could include any of the following major services:

We strive to ensure you receive the best possible medical care, as well as emotional and physical support.

Hospice and Palliative Care

In addition to our primary services, we offer on-site palliative care and hospice services for patients with advanced chronic disease or a life-limiting illness. Our goal is to help residents face the physical, emotional and spiritual challenges of their condition and work with them and their families to provide comfort and support during this time. Our team can participate in discussion, actively monitor residents to manage pain and symptoms, and help patients obtain peace in their moments of trial.

Bereavement Services

Following the passing of loved ones and residents of The Green Home, we offer bereavement services and follow-up support to friends and families throughout the first year. This may include both individual support and/or group support, as well as full access to the materials and resources in our bereavement library. Our friendly, knowledgeable support staff encourages you to take full advantage of these services in the wake of your loss.

Pennsylvania Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST)

POLST forms turn your wishes for medical treatment into actionable medical orders if you ever become unable to make those decisions yourself. The form stays with you as a reference for all your caregivers. Ideally, a patient should complete this during a discussion with loved ones and family members. It must be signed by your physician, certified nurse practitioner or physician assistant. The form addresses treatments such as CPR, comfort medical interventions, antibiotics and artificially administered hydration/nutrition. Ensure you receive the medical care you want by reviewing and completing the form below.
