Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We treat all of our Connecticut patients with compassion, peace, and dignity. This is an emotionally draining process for everybody involved, and use symptom and pain management treatment to improve their quality of life.

Comfort Versus Curative

We want to be there for you when you or your loved ones are facing a sad, sometimes lonely experience. Hospice treatment should be considered for the direst of circumstances and you want to give the patient as good of an experience as they can have. This includes children suffering from a life-limiting illness or if there is a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
You can conveniently complete an online hospice referral through our website. There’s no need for a doctor’s guidance to go to hospice care. A hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency can recommend a stay at our facility. We can admit any patient under a physician’s direction.

Hospice is Affordable
Hospice care is covered through Medicare, Medicaid, and several types of private health insurance. We make sure to keep prices reasonable to give Connecticut patients the love and care they deserve.
