Veterans' Services

Veterans Services at Camp Hill Veterans Memorial Building has been providing care and services to the 175 Veterans who live here since 1987.

We offer programs that are designed to encourage residents of Camp Hill to be as independent as possible and to enjoy the best possible quality of life. There are many opportunities for residents to participate in activities for socializing and staying active such as music therapy, gardening, baking, playing cards, celebrations, shopping trips, Legion visitations and so on.

There are seven living areas of which three focus specifically on providing care to people who are living with Alzheimer’s disease or other type of dementia. There are safety features in place to protect residents who may be unsafe if they leave Camp Hill by themselves.

This website has been prepared to help Veterans, families, professionals, students, volunteers and staff get the information that they need about Camp Hill.
