A distinguished nonprofit hospice provider since 1983, Regional Hospice walks alongside Naugatuck patients and their loved ones enabling those in our care to focus on what matters: living fully when facing life-limiting illness. Patients of all ages―from babies to adults―in private homes, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities in four Connecticut counties benefit from our services. Our Danbury Center for Comfort Care & Healing is the first residential hospice center of its kind in Connecticut, offering all the comforts and amenities of home to patients throughout greater Naugatuck.

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. Naugatuck 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.
We provide compassion and comfort for our Naugatuck patients inside our beautiful center or in the comfort of their own home. We extend our services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers follow customized care plans based off of each patients specific needs, condition and symptoms. We also offer special services such as speech, physical and occupational therapy.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We strive to give our patients the highest quality of life possible, while also providing their family with emotional and spiritual support.
Comfort versus Curative
Hospice care should be considered when a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less is given, or when a child is suffering from an advanced illness. We are here to provide the necessary care and resources to improve their pain and symptoms.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Though anyone can request hospice care, most patients are referred by a hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency and will be admitted under a physician’s orders. We offer an online hospice referral right here on our website.
Hospice is Affordable
Caring for your loved ones should be affordable for our Naugatuck patients. That’s why the Regional Hospice treats most major private insurance such as Medicare and Medicaid.
Whether your loved one lives in a house, assisted nursing residence or skilled nursing facility, Home Hospice Care is happy to give them care wherever they reside.
