Comprehensive Support

Connecticut Hospice provides comprehensive, coordinated palliative and hospice care without gaps or duplication.

Patient and Family-Centered Care

We consider our patients and their families to be “one unit of focus” and understand that every patient and family is unique with special needs and wishes.

We listen, offer choices, and actively engage patients and families in the decision-making process as we develop a customized plan of care.

We encourage questions about the illness, its progress, and treatment, and help families understand patient condition changes.

A Team Approach

Our comprehensive approach to hospice and palliative care is delivered by a medically directed, nurse-coordinated, interdisciplinary team, which consists of hospice and palliative board-certified physicians, nurses and pharmacists.

To meet the unique needs of each patient and family unit, we offer hospice and palliative care at home, as well as hospice or palliative care in our waterfront inpatient hospital.

Teams consist of:
  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Pharmacists
  • Social Workers
  • Spiritual and Pastoral Care Providers
  • Supplies
  • Art and Music Therapists
  • Dieticians
  • Artists
  • Musicians
  • Trained Volunteers

Flexible, Customized Plans-of-Care

We engage and empower patients and families as we develop customized plans that respond to each patient’s particular needs. Flexible care options enable our patients to move back and forth between our home care and our inpatient services over the course of their illness. 

We encourage questions about the illness, its progress, and treatment, and help families and patients alike to understand the process of palliative and end-of-life care.

Respite Care

We offer short-term 24/7 respite care for up to five (5) days in our in-patient facility. Respite care provides temporary relief to caregivers, helping to ease the burden for families and caregivers, many of whom experience periods of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion while caring for loved ones.

Bereavement Program

We offer bereavement support groups, education, bereavement mailings throughout the year, assessment, brief counseling, community referrals, phone support and an Annual Memorial Service.

Prayer Hands

Pastoral & Spiritual Care

We help connect people with their faith, regardless of what it is, calling on spiritual leaders from Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism, and other religions to offer patients and families the support they need on their journey.

Arts Program

Unique to Connecticut Hospice, we view the arts as an important component of care. Our art and music therapists and other expressive artists, writers and complementary therapists engage patients and families in individual and group activities that promote creative fulfillment and quality of life.
