Who We Are and Why We Serve Monroe

Since 1983, we have helped thousands of patients successfully live their remaining days in the comfort of their own Monroe home or nursing facility. Regional Hospice and Palliative Care provides caring end-of-life services to the Connecticut community with peace and dignity, while supporting their families emotionally or spiritually.

We have also build Connecticut’s first, and only, state-of-the-art private hospice center after years of careful consideration and planning – our Center for Comfort Care and Healing in CT.
