Sometimes serious, life-threatening illnesses and their treatments generate pain and side effects that cannot be safely and adequately managed in a patient’s home or other settings.
The Connecticut Hospice is uniquely equipped to provide prompt and effective palliative care because, unlike any other hospice provider in Connecticut, we can immediately transition patients in crisis to our own licensed hospital.
We provide an expert level of pain and symptom management, and offer an extensive array of symptom management and comfort-oriented measures to patients admitted for medical and palliative care.
We attend to the quality of life interventions that people find important when they are very sick: we don’t wake people up, we turn the lights out at night, we let their families visit 24/7, in addition to offering rational, reasonable medical intervention.
