Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

Receive our quality care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week here at Regional Hospice. We can come directly to your Beacon Falls home or facility, or invite you to ours at the Center for Comfort Care and Healing.

 

Our physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers follow customized care plans based off of each patients specific needs, condition and symptoms. We also offer special services such as speech, physical and occupational therapy.

Compassion, Peace and Dignity

We listen to each patient’s goals and wishes and provide our care and services with that in mind. Each Beacon Falls patient is treated with care, respect, and dignity while we work to manage their pain and symptoms.

 

Comfort Versus Curative

Hospice care should be considered when a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less is given, or when a child is suffering from an advanced illness. We are here to provide the necessary care and resources to improve their pain and symptoms.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary

Though anyone can request hospice care, most patients are referred by a hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency and will be admitted under a physician’s orders. We offer an online hospice referral right here on our website.

Hospice is Affordable
