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. Danbury 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.
Whether inside your Danbury home or facility, or at our home, the Center for Comfort Care and Healing, Regional Hospice provides exceptional, convenient, hospice care services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers follow customized, individual care plans designed to meet each patient’s needs for pain management and symptom control and special services such as speech, physical and occupational therapy.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We support you and your loved ones during your difficult time treating you and them with the compassion, peace and dignity they deserve. We work with symptom and pain management that allow end-of-life patients to achieve new goals and improve the quality of life.
Comfort Versus Curative
Consider hospice when there is a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less, (a disease that has run its normal course) or if a child is suffering from a life-limiting illness. We strive to give the highest quality of life to you and your loved one during final portion of their time.

Anyone may request hospice care. A patient may be referred by a hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency and will be admitted under a physician’s direction. An online hospice referral can be conveniently completed through our site.
