Since 1983, Regional Hospice and Palliative Care has dedicated itself to provide both comfort and compassion for the terminally ill or for people who have recently lost a loved one. Over the past 35 years, we have strived to arrange in-home, palliative, pediatric, and inpatient hospice care for North Haven families and individuals. With our offices in Danbury, CT, our services are available to you 24 hours a day, over 7 days of the week. We want to provide you with dignity, peace, and compassion for each individual we encounter.

Regional Hospice and Palliative Care has supported thousands of patients, by providing them with dignity, peace, and compassion since 1983. By providing residents of the North Haven community with caring, end-of-life services, we help patients live out their remaining days with peace and dignity, all within the comfort of their own home or nursing care facility. Our team also supports their families both emotionally and spiritually.
After many years of careful planning and consideration, we have gone forth with building Connecticut’s first and only, state-of-the-art, private suite hospice center – our Center for Comfort Care and Healing, located in Danbury, CT.
Our patients of North Haven, CT deserve the best medical care and up-to-date treatments possible. After more than 30 years of treating people inside their homes, we want to extend a warm welcome to you by opening our doors.
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 and Palliative Care 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.
