Thank You for Putting the “Home” in Homeland Center


home sweet homeland

As our parents age, as we age, life sometimes doesn’t go as planned. Mom may get sick and need around the clock expert nursing care. Dad isn’t the same after Mom passed and needs some assistance, but still wants to live his life as independently as he possibly can. They provided a good home, took care of the family and then each other. Now it is the children’s responsibility.

Trying to manage a household, a full-time job, along with being the sole caretaker of Dad is difficult. It forces us to ask ourselves some challenging questions.

 Where can I find quality senior care paired with choices?  Where can I find a CMS Five-Star Skilled Nursing Facility or Harrisburg Magazine’s Readers’ Choice for Best Long Term Care Facility in the Harrisburg region? A CMS Five-Star designation is Medicare’s highest recognition for quality in care, staffing and safety, and it ranks facilities among the country’s elite for continuing care retirement communities.

The answer occupies a full city block in uptown Harrisburg at 1901 North Fifth Street. The answer was chartered in 1867, as the Home for the Friendless — women representing nine churches in Harrisburg identified the need to care for the widows and orphans of the Civil War.  The answer is Homeland Center.

While it is true that Homeland has been recognized as a premier provider of exemplary health care to seniors, we could not have reached these extraordinary accomplishments alone.

So, Homeland Center would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU.

Thank you to our dedicated and friendly staff and our incredible and selfless volunteers and donors. Thank you to a regional community that has supported us for the past 150 years. And, of course, thank you to our residents and their families.

To our staff, volunteers and donors, thank you for making Homeland Center what many in this region call home. To our community, residents and families, thank you for the continued encouragement and confidence you give us.

Thank you for putting the “Home” in Homeland.
