A distinguished nonprofit hospice provider since 1983, Regional Hospice walks alongside North Haven 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 greater North Haven.

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. North Haven 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.
Our patients in North Haven will receive both compassion and comfort inside our beautiful center, as well as in the comfort of their own home. We also extend our services on a 24/7 basis.
For each of our patient’s needs, we designed individualized custom care plans. Our staff consists of physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aids, and trained hospice volunteers to provide special services including occupational and speech therapy.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
Not only do we strive to give patients the highest quality of life, but we also provide their family with both emotional and spiritual support.
Comfort Versus Curative
Whenever there is a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less, where a disease has run its normal course, or if a child is suffering from a life-limiting illness, you may want to consider hospice. By providing hospice services to North Haven patients, it is our goal to make our patients feel compassion, comfort, and pain free from their symptoms.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Hospice care may be requested by anyone. North Haven patients may be referred by a hospital, clergy, family, friends, or and other home care agency. They will be admitted under a physician’s direction. For your convenience, a referral can be made on our website.
Hospice is Affordable
The Regional Hospice treats the majority of private insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid. For this reason, caring for your loved ones should be affordable for our North Haven patients.
No matter where your loved one lives, whether in a house, assisted nursing residence, or skilled nursing facility, Regional Hospice Care is happy to give them care no matter where they reside.
