Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

Available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, Regional Hospice provides astounding and convenient hospice care services. 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.
