Do you have a question? Reach out, we can help.
Regional Hospice and Palliative Care has provided 35 years of caring for terminal patients with end-of-life treatments. Thousands of patients have been served by us, where we helped them live out their remaining days in in-house or inpatient care to move on with peace and self-respect. We also support the patients’ families emotionally and spiritually.
We have also built the Center for Comfort Care and Healing, Connecticut’s first and only private suite hospice center.
We will be honored to be able to bring your love one’s into a state of calm with superior hospice care. After decades of our good reputation as in-house carers, now you can bring them to our in-patient facility.
Available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, Regional Hospice and Palliative Care provides astounding and convenient hospice care services. Whether you would choose to have us in your Brewster home or in the Center for Comfort Care and Healing, we are here to help.
Speech, physical and occupational therapy are just some of the special services we provide to our patients. Physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers follow custom, personalized care plans to meet their needs for pain management and symptom control.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We work with symptom and pain management so patients reaching the end of their lives can enjoy themselves for a little bit longer. We support you and your family during this difficult time and treat the patient with compassion, peace and dignity.
Comfort Versus Curative
Our facility is meant to help our patients ease into the next stage of life. Consider us when it looks like the end of the road for your loved one, and we will nurture them for as long as they can still be here. Examples would include terminal prognosis of less than six months or if a child has a life-limiting illness.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
A patient may be referred by a Brewster hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency to be admitted under a physician’s direction. Anyone can request it, and an online hospice referral can be completed through our website.
Hospice is Affordable
Our high-quality hospice care is covered by most private health insurances, along with Medicare and Medicaid.
We at Home Hospice Care will visit you, wherever you live – your home, skilled nursing facility or assisted living residence.
