Press Release from CT State Rep. Dan Carter:

DANBURY – On Monday, January 26, 2015, State Representatives Dan Carter (R-2) and Jan Giegler (R-138) and State Senator Michael McLachlan gave a citation at the ribbon cutting ceremony of the new Regional Hospice and Home Care Center for Comfort Care & Healing at 30 Milestone Road in Danbury.

“Facilities like this, and the dedicated staff who devote so much of themselves to make others’ lives comfortable, transcend politics and I’m honored to be a part of the opening,” said Rep. Carter.
 
“I lost my mother to cancer a few years ago and it is comforting to know that this facility is available for those who are facing end-of-life issues within their own family,” said Rep. Giegler. “I know this center will be an important resource and place of comfort for all of greater Danbury.”

“This modern facility right here in Danbury will provide best care practices and meet a vital need in our region,” said Sen. McLachlan.  “It is the state’s first and only private-room facility, and its dedicated staff of professionals will provide exceptional end-of-life care, comfort and compassion to children, adults and their families.  We commend everyone at the Regional Hospice on their work, and we thank the community for their efforts to make this day a reality.”

Regional Hospice has been providing care for 30 years, but the Danbury Center for Comfort Care & Healing is the first hospice residence in the state of Connecticut to offer private room service. Over 1,000 patients of all ages can be cared for and accommodated by Regional Hospice, whose goal is to provide an at-home feel for patients and their families.

Twelve private suites feature a balcony onto which patient beds can be rolled for fresh air. The living rooms, family rooms, dining room and kitchen, library, and patient rooms are ornamented with Ethan Allen furnishings and tranquil displays of art. The center – which has been in the works for eight years and began construction with the Blessing of the Land in June 2012 – also features a professional chef, spa and salon services, a chapel, gardens, and play scape.

Care at the Regional Hospice Center is provided by medical directors, registered nurses, social workers and spiritual care, hospice aides and trained hospice volunteers, and can be customized into individual care plans for pain management, symptom control and special services such as speech, physical and occupational therapy. Patients also have the option to receive care from home, an assisted living facility, or a skilled nursing facility.

The residence also offers support and counseling services to families and significant others through a Healing Hearts Center for Grief and Loss, which also offers an Infant Loss Support Group. Each care plan can be covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private health insurances.
