A comprehensive benefits package is offered to all full-time employees. Benefits begin the first day of the month after employee has worked 60 days. Many benefits are purchased with pre-tax dollars, reducing employee income tax costs.

Paid Time Off

Full-time and part-time employees who work 30 or more hours weekly are eligible to receive paid time off (PTO). PTO accrual varies depending on position and length of service. There are six hospice-designated holidays per year. PTO includes time off for vacation, sick time and personal time.


The CT Hospice offers employees the option of  participating in a 403(B) retirement savings account, where their contributions are tax deferred up to the annual maximum as defined by the IRS (Internal Revenue Service).
