Fairfield County Hospice House to host open house

December 2, 2017

Stamford - Fairfield County Hospice House is hosting an open house from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 7, to showcase the first residential house for hospice care in the State of Connecticut.

The House offers a home away from home for those during their final stage of life who cannot remain where they most want to be, in their own homes.

Located in a quiet neighborhood, the Fairfield County Hospice House can accommodate up to six residents and provides a comfortable, private setting, that offers its residents spiritual and emotional support.

“As one of the individuals involved at the start of this dream to have a hospice home in Fairfield County, it is so fulfilling to know that the time has come for the dream to become a reality in a few weeks,” said Lisa Rich, a longtime Stamford resident and Board Member for the Fairfield County Hospice House. “I encourage Stamford residents to join us for the open house to tour this beautiful home for patients requiring hospice care.”

The Fairfield County Hospice House is located at One Den Road, Stamford, CT. Parking will be available on site. A special presentation from members of the FCHH Executive Team is planned for 5:30 pm.

Fairfield County Hospice House is a not-for-profit organization that was established in 2012 and is dedicated to filling the gap in care for those needing hospice services in Fairfield County.
