Providing compassionate, caring end-of-life services to our Connecticut community including those in Cortland since 1983, Regional Hospice and Palliative Care has helped thousands of patients spend their remaining days in the comfort of their own home. Specialized care and treatment is provided to those confined to nursing care facilities also.
Regardless of where patients live their final days, we ensure they enjoy the peace and dignity they so deserve. We also provide specialized emotional and spiritual support to family members.
We have, after years of careful consideration and planning, constructed Connecticut’s first and only, state-of-the-art, private suite hospice center in Danbury, CT, the Center for Comfort Care and Healing.
