Since 1983, Regional Hospice has provided care choices for terminal patients and their families during the sacred end-of-life transition. Our Center for Comfort Care & Healing is the first hospice residence of its kind in Connecticut and is available to anyone in the U.S. Briarcliff Manor residents benefit from 24/7 clinical care in private suites with screened in balconies, wood furnishings and chef-prepared custom meals. The Center replicates the comforts of home, where loved ones can focus on quality time together.
Regional Hospice provides care and treatment to patients 24 hours of every day, 7 days a week no matter your location. Our team at Regional Hospice consists of physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides, and trained hospice volunteers devoted to personalizing treatment plans that are designed to meet the individual needs of our patients. Treatment plans consist of pain management, symptom control, speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
Providing compassion, peace, and dignity to all hospice patients with superior care and treatment is our goal, which allows for a better quality of life in their final days and weeks.
Comfort Versus Curative
When patients are diagnosed with a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less or a child is diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, they need compassionate, specialized hospice care and treatment. Regional Hospice gives this specialized care patients need with comfort.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Referrals are not necessary with Regional Hospice. All patients who reach out for our hospice will be accepted and are cared for by one of our physicians. Want to submit an online referral? This can be done on our website.
