Who We Are and Why We Serve Poughkeepsie

Since 1983, Regional Hospice has provided care choices for terminal patients and their families during the sacred end-of-life transition.

Volunteers

Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

We offer care and treatment 24 hours per day, 7 days per week at Regional Hospice, regardless of where treatment is rendered.

We have a team of dedicated physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides, and trained hospice volunteers to give your loved one customized treatment options that meet their individual needs. This may include pain management, symptom control, speech therapy, and physical and occupational therapies.

Compassion, Peace and Dignity

Our group offers the most elevated amount of sympathy with the objective for your loved one. Our treatment plans center around helping end of life patients improve their overall quality of life in their final days.

Comfort Versus Curative

A terminal prognosis of a half year or less or a child determined to have a life-limiting disease merits specific hospice care that bears them a quality end of life. Regional Hospice does just that.
