Hospice or Palliative Care: Which is Best for My Loved One?

Hospice Care

Our Hospice Program will attend to your loved one’s medical needs with the utmost compassion and respect. Our team of outstanding caregivers will tailor services around your wishes and the needs of your loved ones. Hospice is available to anyone with an advanced illness and a limited life expectancy of six months or less who has chosen comfort care—treatment for care, not cure. Learn more about hospice care in CT at Regional Hospice and Palliative Care.

Palliative Care

When hospice care is not the right option, Palliative Home Care can provide patients with relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of an advanced illness. The Palliative Home Care Program works in collaboration with the care of physicians while allowing patients to pursue specialized treatments. This program, for patients who are homebound and who have a skilled need, is especially helpful when symptoms are difficult to control. For more information, please see our Palliative Home Care page.

A Medicare Option for Both

A unique option for hope and peace of mind while continuing treatment:

As of January 1, 2016, Regional Hospice and Palliative Care is now offering Medicare beneficiaries the option to receive palliative and hospice care concurrently.

As the only hospice in Connecticut selected to participate in the Medicare Care Choices Model, Regional Hospice is the CT’s exclusive provider of interdisciplinary hospice care and support to patients and their families while patients continue to undergo curative treatments.

Real hope for peace of mind.
