Since 1983, Regional Hospice and Palliative Care has dedicated itself to comforting and caring for patients who want to be comforted in the last days of their lives. We want to make our patients in-home and inpatient feel special and cared for in their last few days, as well as supporting the families who are going through this difficult and emotional time.
In addition, we have created the first and only private suite hospice center in Connecticut. This incredible, brand-new facility is in our Center for Comfort Care and Healing in CT, after years of planning.
Not only have we provided exceptional quality for in-home hospice care for 35 years, we are now able to care for your loved ones in our space, too.
Regional Hospice and Palliative Care provides the highest quality and most convenient hospice care services at any day and any time, regardless of whether your loved one is using in-home or in-patient treatment.
Different people including physicians, social workers, chaplains, registered nurses, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers help patients follow individualized health care plans designed for pain management and symptom control. They also work to maintain special services such as speech, physical and occupational therapy.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We provide support and comfort while you, the patient and your family are going through this turbulent time. We make sure to maintain compassion, peace and dignity in your lives, and work with their situation to improve their quality of life and strive for new goals in the last stage of their lives.
Comfort Versus Curative
Hospice care should be thought about if the patient is a child suffering from a grave illness or if there is a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less, which is when a disease runs its normal course. We want to give your loved one the best possible way to spend their remaining days.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Anyone may request hospice care. Whether your loved one is referred by a New Milford hospital, clergy or through friends and family, an online hospice referral can be completed through our website, and will be admitted under a physician’s direction.
Hospice is Affordable
Medicare, Medicaid and many private health insurances cover hospice care, which allows you to provide them with safe and exceptional care.
Whether your loved one lives at home, in assisted living or in a skilled nursing facility, Home Hospice Care will come to you and accommodate your needs.
