A distinguished nonprofit hospice provider since 1983, Regional Hospice walks alongside Rye patients and their loved ones enabling those in our care to focus on what matters: living fully when facing life-limiting illness. Patients of all ages―from babies to adults― benefit from our in-patient services. Our Danbury Center for Comfort Care & Healing is the first residential hospice center of its kind in Connecticut, offering all the comforts and amenities of home to patients throughout Rye.
Since 1983 Regional Hospice and Palliative Care has been committed to providing comfort, care, and compassion to our Rye patients who are diagnosed with life-limiting illnesses or those who suffer losses. Our dedicated team of caregivers provides in-home or in-patient hospice care as well as palliative care and pediatric care to our many patients and their families throughout the Greater Rye region.
We not only provide all the compassion and care they need but also the peace and dignity for loved ones in need of end-of-life care. We provide our specialized treatments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
