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. Waterbury 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 provide exceptional and convenient hospice care services all day, every day, whether it’s inside of your Waterbury home or inside of our Danbury facility, the Center for Comfort Care and Healing.
We design individualized, custom care plans that are made to meet each patient’s needs for pain management and symptom control. We also provide special services such as speech, physical and occupational therapy, and they are regularly serviced by our physicians, registered nurses, social workers, chaplains, hospice care aides and trained hospice volunteers.
Compassion, Peace and Dignity
We give you and your loved one’s support with the compassion, peace and dignity they deserve during this difficult time. We strive to give end-of-life patients new goals and improve the quality of their lives with symptom and pain management.
Comfort Versus Curative
If there is a terminal prognosis of 6 months or less (a disease that has run its normal course) or if you have a child suffering from life-limiting illness, consider giving them hospice services. We want to give them the highest quality of life during the last stage of their lives.
A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
Anyone in Waterbury can request hospice care, and a patient can be referred to by anyone so long as they are admitted under a physician’s direction. An online hospice referral can be completed through our site for your convenience.
Hospice is Affordable
Hospice care is covered by most private health insurances, along with Medicare and Medicaid, to help make the care for your loved one more affordable.
Whether your loved one lives in a house, assisted nursing residence or skilled nursing facility, Home Hospice Care will come to them.
