Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

We keep our services easily accessible for all of our Torrington patients by offering both in-home care in Torrington and in-patient hospice care in Danbury at our home at the Center for Comfort Care and Healing. Regional Hospice has caregivers and medical support available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We do everything we can to keep your loved one as comfortable as possible during their end-of-life care. We see each patient as if they were one of our family members, and treat them all with respect, kindness, and compassion while encouraging them to reach new goals.

Comfort Versus Curative
Hospice care is recommended when a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less is given (after a disease has run its natural course), or if a child is suffering from a life-limiting condition. Regardless of age or illness we treat each patient with respect while helping them reach their highest quality of life

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Anyone can request our hospice care, though patients are admitted under a physician’s orders. In many situations a hospital, clergy member, family member, friend or other home care agency will refer a patient to us. We have an online referral form for further convenience right here on our website.

Hospice is Affordable
Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private health insurances, because patients at all stages in life should be able to seek medical help without a financial burden.
