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. Torrington 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.
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.

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.
Our services come to you wherever you are most comfortable, whether that’s your Torrington home, nursing facility, or assisted living residence .
