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. Easton 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.
With Regional Hospice by your side, quality care and understanding service is available at all times. We are here to serve our patients, whether it is at your Easton, CT home, a nursing facility, other residency, or our own Center for Comfort Care and Healing.
To provide our patients with the best experience and comfort at this end-of-life period, we have teams of expert and trained individuals. These include physicians, registered nurses, care aids, chaplains, social workers, and loving volunteers. Our teams work together to build individual treatment plans designed to meet the needs of each patient, including unique therapy programs and pain management.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
This sensitive time can be difficult for both patients and family members. We offer our complete support and trust, providing unparalleled care for our Easton patients. We seek to minimize pain, provide symptom relief, all with respect to the wishes and goals of our patients.
Comfort Versus Curative
Deciding when to consider hospice care is not always an easy process, with varying factors in each situation. Typically, a 6 month terminal prognosis is an adequate and proper time for hospice. We also suggest hospice for children with life-limiting conditions and illnesses.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Our hospice care is available upon request from anybody. It does not have to always be through a doctor. Patient references can come from family members, friends, clergy, and others. To make the referral process more convenient, we offer online hospice referral through our website.
Hospice is Affordable
Regional Hospice is committed to providing quality care for everyone. Most private health insurances cover hospice care, including Medicare and Medicaid.
Regardless of location, our hospice care is readily available to provide you with comfort and assistance. If you would like it in your Easton home, a professional nursing facility, or assisted living residence, we are here to serve you.
