Ecumen of Litchfield Hospice
Life-honoring care and services.
Hospice is a philosophy of care for people who are terminally ill. Ecumen Hospice care is family-oriented and designed to help make the most of time together while preparing for the future. We also are happy to offer a program started by Ecumen of Litchfield Hospice to make dreams come true for clients in their last days.
Our team of professionals is ready to support you and your family on this journey. We have trained hospice RN case managers, certified nursing assistants, and a dedicated Ecumen Hospice medical director who will work with your primary care physician. Our board-certified music therapist and licensed massage therapist provides relaxation and stress relief when it is most needed.
Ecumen Hospice medical social workers assist families to create fulfilling and rewarding life experiences. Our chaplains and spiritual counselors help hospice patients on their spiritual or faith journeys.
“My Dad used Ecumen Hospice last year and I can’t say enough good things about the care & compassion he received. Having this extra special attention allowed him to pass away peacefully in his own home. Staying at home was really important to Dad as family and friends could spend special times and meals with him. It was comforting to know the Ecumen Hospice team was there for Dad but also for my Mom and my family.
People may not know this is a Medicare benefit and Mom and Dad didn’t have additional medical expenses related to hospice. That was such a relief!
The idea of hospice can be uncomfortable for some, but I can tell you as a family member, we appreciated the support, comfort and peace that came along with the loving care for my Dad. Hospice services were so much loved and appreciated.”
