Comfort Versus Curative

We also are recognized for our specialized in-patient hospice care and treatment we provide to children 6 months of age and younger who have been diagnosed with a terminal prognosis.  The team here at Regional Hospice understands full well the challenges, the emotions and the hardships endured and strive to deliver superior care and treatment to children while offering comfort to loved ones.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary

Hospice is Affordable

The peace of mind needed by family members who are watching a loved one die, to know that they will receive the specialized hospice care they need can be met by most private health insurance plans as well as Medicare and Medicaid.  These insurance plans typically provide needed coverage for your loved ones and afford you the comfort you need knowing they will be properly cared for.
