Since our beginning in 1983, here at Regional Hospice and Palliative Care we have been providing caring, end-of-life services to families and individuals in Connecticut. Due to our services, thousands of our patients have been helped to live out their remaining days peacefully in their own home or nursing care facility. We also support families emotionally and spiritually.
We are proud to have built the first and only state-of-the-art, private suite hospice center in Connecticut called the Center for Comfort Care and Healing in CT. This comes after years of planning.
Regional Hospice is honored to have a long reputation for exceptional in-home hospice care. Now, with our new hospice center, we want to welcome you into our home as well.
No matter where you receive our services, whether it is in your New Canaan home or facility or our Center for Comfort Care and Healing, you can always expect accommodative and superior hospice care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our staff include physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides, and trainer hospice volunteers. These individuals follow unique care plans created with each patient’s pain management needs and symptom control in mind for specific services including speech, physical, and occupational therapy.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We understand this is a difficult time, and we will support you and your loved ones by treating your family with kindness, dignity, and serenity. Our work includes symptom and pain management so end-of-life patients can have an improved quality of life.
Comfort Versus Curative
Hospice should be considered when a patient has a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less (such as a disease that has run its normal course) or a child experiencing life-limiting illness. Our mission is to provide your loved one the highest quality of life during their final days.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Hospice care is not strictly available with a doctor’s referral, but is available through a hospital, clergy, family, friend, or other home care agency referral. The patient is admitted under a physician’s direction. Conveniently complete an online hospice referral through our website.
Hospice is Affordable
Most private health insurances in addition to Medicare and Medicaid cover hospice. This can allow you to give your loved one high-quality care without worrying about cost.
No matter where your loved one resides, Home Hospice Care comes to you, whether it is in a home, assisted living residence, or skilled nursing facility.
