Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

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.
