In addition to medical care and support, The Connecticut Hospice offers patients and their families a wide variety of in-home complementary services to help patients, and their loved ones, live life to the fullest possible.
Patients, and their families, can receive complementary therapies and services in whatever setting the patient resides.
Some in-home complimentary service examples include:
We offer two home care programs, each designed to meet individual needs and assist patients and their families at different stages in the course of their illness. We provide continuity of care, should illness progress and inpatient hospice care become necessary.
Our experienced, physician-led interdisciplinary team works together to provide comprehensive care to our patients and families in their own homes, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities, and other hospitals.
Our Hospice Home Care program is appropriate for patients with terminal illnesses whose life expectancy is less than six months.
Our Stand By Me Palliative Home Care program provides comprehensive, patient- and family-centered care to people who are receiving conventional medicine to treat life-threatening illnesses. We provide expert pain management, medical care services, and a variety of therapies and support services in patient homes and in assisted living facilities.
Our Stand by Me program is appropriate for patients with a prognosis greater than six months.
