​​​Hospice & Palliative Care

Quality of Life is Our Focus

Masonicare's Hospice and Palliative programs have a philosophy of care that encompasses mind, body, and spirit.  Our dedicated team focuses on relieving the symptoms and stress of progressive illness so patients and loved ones can enjoy a higher quality of life.  We address patients' physical needs such as pain control and symptom management, while also providing emotional support to the indiviiduals we care for.

 

A common misconception is that hospice and palliative care are only for patients who have cancer.  In addition to cancer, Masonicare provides these services for patients with many types of life-limiting illness, such as:

 

  • Alzheimer's disease and dementia
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF) and other heart diseases
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory illnesses
  • Renal (kidney) failure
  • Blood and nutritional disorders
  • Progressive neurological disorders

 

Unlike most agencies, Masonicare is licensed to provide both hospice and palliative care, ensuring a smooth transition if a patient's needs should change.  With locations in Wallingford, Derby, Norwalk, Mystic, Danielson, and a partnership office in East Hartford,​ we are the leading hospice and palliative care provider in Connecticut.
