The Connecticut Hospice

Honoring patients and families with integrity, support, and compassion since 1974.

Care You Need, When and Where You Need It

We offer a continuum of care from home or facility care through inpatient care at our beautiful waterfront hospital in Branford.

This flexible approach helps patients and families choose the location of care that best supports their needs.
