Receive Regional Hospice’s remarkable and convenient hospice services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We can come to you at your Oakville home or nursing facility, or invite you to ours at the Center for Comfort Care and Healing.

Physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers follow care plans individually designed for each patient. We focus on the individuals symptoms, condition, and pain levels to create a plan of action. We may also suggest certain therapies like speech, physical and occupational.

Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We take pride in our connection between staff members and our patients. We treat everyone with kindness, compassion, and respect while they receive their end-of-life care. By combining symptom and pain management techniques we can help create a better quality of life for our patients.

Comfort Versus Curative
After a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less has been made, or if a child is suffering from a life-limiting illness, our hospice services should be considered. We are here to help both the patient and their family through this difficult time.

Anyone may request hospice care, we offer patients an online referral form for their convenience. A patient is typically referred by a hospital, clergy, family, friend or other home care agency and will be admitted under a physician’s orders.

Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private health insurances, letting you and your family focus on providing expert care for your loved one.
