Who We Are and Why We Serve Somers?

Since 1983, Regional Hospice has provided care choices for terminal patients and their families during the sacred end-of-life transition. Our Center for Comfort Care & Healing is the first hospice residence of its kind in Connecticut and is available to anyone in the U.S. Somers residents benefit from 24/7 clinical care in private suites with screened in balconies, wood furnishings and chef-prepared custom meals. The Center replicates the comforts of home, where loved ones can focus on quality time together.

Volunteers

Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center? At the Center for Comfort Care and Healing, Regional Hospice provides hospice care services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and hospice volunteers follow individual care plans designed for each Somers patient’s unique pain management and symptom control needs with various therapy services.

Compassion, Peace and Dignity
During this difficult time we support you and your loved ones with the kindness they deserve. Our symptom and pain management work allows end-of-life Somers patients to reach goals enhancing the quality of life.

Comfort Versus Curative
Consider hospice for terminal prognoses of 6 months or less, (a disease that has run its course) or a child with a life-limiting illness. Our goal is to give the highest quality of life to you and your loved one in their final portion of time.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Anyone may request hospice care such as a hospital, clergy, family, friend or home care agency to admit a patient under a physician’s direction. Online hospice referrals are available through our site.

Hospice is Affordable
Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private health insurances to give high-quality care to your loved one.
