Why Choose the Regional Hospice Center

Regional Hospice offers a wide range of services to meet the specific needs of our Weston patients. This includes offering care at your home, at our home, in a facility, or in our state-of-the-art Center for Comfort Care and Healing. No matter the location, our service is always here to care for you.

 We operate on a team of successful and exceptional individuals who are all committed to our promise of quality care. These people include registered nurses, physicians, chaplains, social workers, trained volunteers, and select others. They all work together to craft treatment plans for each patient to help with specific needs, symptom controls, and therapy programs.

Compassion, Peace and Dignity
At these sensitive and tender times of life, Regional Hospice offers complete support and fidelity. Our team members are here to provide comfort and care for both the individual and family members. We make sure every Weston patient is treated with compassion, peace, and dignity.

Comfort Versus Curative
It is not always easy to decide when to move to hospice or when to consider it an option. We recommend when there has been a terminal prognosis, typically of 6 months or less. If a young child is enduring a life-limiting condition, pediatric hospice should also be considered. Every option provides quality care at this time of the patient’s life.

A Doctor’s Referral is Not Necessary
When it comes to requesting hospice care, a doctor’s referral is not necessary or required. Several of our hospice recommendations can come from family members, friends, and others. Online referrals are offered for your complete convenience.

Hospice is Affordable
Regional Hospice strives to make our services affordable and available to all. It is covered by most private health insurances, Medicaid, and Medicare.
