A distinguished nonprofit hospice provider since 1983, Regional Hospice walks alongside New Haven County 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 New Haven County.

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. New Haven County 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.
Regional Hospice provides convenient and reputable hospice care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at your New Haven County home, nursing facility, or at our home, the Center for Comfort Care and Healing.
Speech, physical and occupational therapy are just some of the special services we provide to our patients. Physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers follow custom, personalized care plans to meet their needs for pain management and symptom control.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We work with symptom and pain management so patients reaching the end of their lives can enjoy themselves for a little bit longer. We support you and your family during this difficult time and treat the patient with compassion, peace and dignity.
Comfort Versus Curative
We offer comfort and support for patients suffering from a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less, (a disease that has run its normal course) or if a child is suffering from a life-limiting illness. It is our mission to treat your loved ones with respect during their final days.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Though anyone can request our hospice services, patients are admitted under a doctor’s orders, and are often referred by a hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency. We offer an online hospice referral form on our website.
Hospice is Affordable
Hospice care should be affordable for everyone. At 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, we want to make sure patients are comfortable, wherever that may be.
