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 Preston 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 Preston home, nursing facility, or at our home, the Center for Comfort Care and Healing.
Following customized treatment plans, our physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers work closely together to improve each patients quality of life through pain and symptom management, sometimes in combination with speech, physical, or occupational therapy.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We have become a reputable facility for hospice care over the years, not only by providing excellent medical care, but by treating our patients and their families with respect, peace, and compassion. We connect with each patient and fully understand their goals while providing symptom and pain management to improve their daily lives.
Comfort Versus Curative
Consider us when a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less has been determined, or if a child is suffering from an advanced illness. Our entire staff works closely to provide comprehensive care for your loved one.
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 is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private health insurances, taking out the stress of providing quality hospice care for your loved one.
Home Hospice Care is available wherever you are, whether at home, an assisted living residence, or a skilled nursing facility.
