Since 1983, Regional Hospice and Palliative Care has successfully helped thousands of patients live out their remaining days in the comfort of their own home or nursing care facility with peace and dignity, while supporting their families emotionally and spiritually. Through providing caring, end-of-life services to our Connecticut community, we have made it one of our missions to provide the best care possible to our patients.
Additionally, we have built Connecticut’s first, and only, brand-new private hospice suite center – the Center for Comfort Care and Healing in CT.
We are not only proud of our decades-long reputation for superior in-home hospice care we are now honored to be able to welcome you into our home as well.
The Center for Comfort Care and Healing, Regional Hospice and Palliative Care can provide exceptional, convenient hospice care services inside your Guilford home or facility. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our staff including physicians, registered nurses, chaplains and hospice care aides & volunteers follow customized health care plans designed to meet each patient’s needs. We provide pain management and symptom control as well as special services such as speech, physical and occupational therapy.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We work with symptom and pain management to give your Guilford loved ones the compassion, peace and dignity they deserve, and will support you and your loved ones in this difficult time. We strive to improve the quality of life and achieve new goals in end-of-life patients.
Comfort Versus Curative
If 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, consider getting hospice care. We strive to give you and your loved one the highest quality of life before their untimely passing.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
A patient may be referred by a Guilford hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency. Anyone may request hospice care and the patient will be admitted under a physician’s direction. An online hospice referral is conveniently available on our website.
Hospice is Affordable
You can provide high-quality hospice care with Medicare, Medicaid and many private health insurances helping you cover the payment, allowing you to care for your loved one fast.
Wherever you reside in Guilford – your home, assisted living residence, or skilled nursing facility – Home Hospice Care comes to you.
