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 branches in Wallingford, East Hartford, Newtown, Norwalk, Mystic, and Danielson, we are the leading hospice and palliative care provider in Connecticut.
