Regional Hospice provides quality and convenient hospice services at your Roxbury home, nursing facility, or assisted living residence, in addition to our new home, the Center for Comfort Care and Healing. Our medical care is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers follow customized care plans that will specifically target each patient’s pain and symptoms. They will also be focused on any additional services like speech, occupational, or physical therapy.

Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We build a strong patient-caregiver bond with each individual that comes to us for hospice care. We treat each patient with dignity, respect, and care, doing everything we can to reduce their pain and symptoms, with the ultimate goal of improving their daily life.

Comfort Versus Curative
Hospice care should be discussed when a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less is given, or if a child is diagnosed with an advanced illness. Our staff of dedicated workers are here to help you and your loved one through their end-of-life care.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Anyone can request our care, though many patients are referred to us by a hospital, family member, friend, or other agency. Our patients are then admitted to us under a doctor’s orders. We offer an online referral form for your convenience.

Hospice is Affordable
Making hospice care as available as possible, it is covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most private health insurances.
