The Connecticut Hospice, Inc.

1PKaJJvI don’t know where we’d be with out Hospice Care. I have seen first hand how these compassionate people work to give dignity to end-of-life patients. The men and women who work in this field are to be thanked every day. They were there for my Father-In-Law, Emil in South Bend, Indiana. The birth place of the hospice movement is in Branford, Connecticut and it was established in 1974. LF0pSTj

Daniel Cosgrove started Hospice and the first Director of Nurses was Charlotte Gray. The facility you see up top is in Branford. What they started has ended up being that helping hand that families need for loved ones, a place to turn when you don’t know what to do. Out of this first facility  grew recognition and countless organizations and facilities springin up to help others. This is the definition of Hospice that I like, “Hospice is a philosophy of care, treating the person rather than the disease and focusing on comfort, compassion, and quality of life.” Hospice care is there when you need them all over the country, they will guide you when you need them.
