Who We Are and Why We Serve Mahopac?

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. Mahopac 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.

Volunteers

Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

Our patients will receive both compassion and comfort inside our beautiful center. We also extend our services on a 24/7 basis.

Our physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides, and trained hospice volunteers follow customized care plans that will specifically target each patient’s pain and symptoms. They will also focus on any additional services like speech, occupational, or physical therapy.

Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We cherish the relationships between our staff and patients. We treat everyone with kindness, compassion, and respect while they receive their end-of-life care. By combining symptom and pain management techniques, we can help improve the quality of life for our patients.

Comfort Versus Curative

After a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less has been made, or if a child is suffering from a life-limiting illness, our hospice services should be considered. We are here to offer you the support and guidance through this difficult time.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Anyone can request our care, though many patients are referred to us by a hospital, family member, friend, or other agency. Our patients are then admitted to us under a doctor’s orders. We offer an online referral form for your convenience.

Hospice is Affordable
Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private health insurances, letting you and your family focus on providing expert care for your loved one.

Perinatal & Pediatric Care
