What makes Connecticut Hospice the right choice for hospice and palliative care? A staff that is guided by core values of C.A.R.E. to ensure the best in patient and family care. While a lot has changed since the start of Hospice in 1974, the quality of care provided has remained the same. In a recent new hire orientation, CEO, Barbara Pearce, stressed the importance of sharing not only the history and mission of The Connecticut Hospice to all new employees, but it is equally important to instill the guiding principles that all staff must follow to continue delivering the utmost quality of care: Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence (C.A.R.E.).
Beyond a shadow of doubt, the work that is done by each member of the Connecticut Hospice team matters and is valued by the organization as well as those impacted. Though quite frequently, when speaking with a Connecticut Hospice employee or volunteer, they will tell you that the work they do makes just as big an impact on their lives as those they care for.
