Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

Here at Regional Hospice we are proud to provide our New Fairfield patients with notable hospice care services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whether at home, a facility, or with us at the Center for Comfort Care and Healing.

We understand each patient has their own unique symptoms and needs which is why we staff a variety of workers, including physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers. We customize treatment plans and provide speech, physical, and occupational therapy as well.

Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We continue to create an environment filled with compassion, peace, and dignity for you and your loved one while we work closely with them to improve their quality of life and manage and/or reduce their pain and symptoms.

Comfort Versus Curative
Hospice should be considered when a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less is presented, or if a child is diagnosed with a life-limiting illness or condition. We are here to create comfort and care for your loved one during this difficult time.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Hospice care can be recommended by a hospital, clergy, family member, friend, or other home care facility. Patients will be admitted under a physician’s name. We also have a convenient online form that patients can fill out for a hospice referral, which is located on our website.

Hospice is Affordable
Hospice care is paid for by Medicare, Medicaid and most private health insurances, taking out some of the stress that comes along with this difficult time.
