Compassionate Care Begins with Our Leadership

They truly care about the clients and caregivers that are part of the CPNC family, and they take pride in the meaningful relationships that have been built over the years.

My father was a client of Central Penn Nursing Care so I can say with confidence that no one provides better in-home care – no one!"
