hospice levels of care
ranciscan Home Care and Hospice Care, a faith-based home health care agency, will celebrate 30 years of caring service in 2017. The agency was licensed on April 29, 1987. Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care believes in the dignity of the human person and the sacredness of human life. The dedicated staff of nurses and social workers, physical, speech and occupational therapists, and home health aides specializes in the needs of persons who are elderly, handicapped, chronically ill or terminally ill who would benefit from care in their homes.
LIGHTING THE WAY
Lighting the Way, a program of Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care, was founded in 2000 to remember those who died for whom we cared in our hospice program. This remembrance is held each year in November when the Church celebrates All Souls Day and the country celebrates National Home Care and Hospice Care Month.
A Mass celebrating the lives of those who died followed by a Lighting the Way service was held on November 2, 2017. Over two hundred individuals and families attended this event. The Lighting the Way path and trees are lit through November and will be relit during the Christmas Season.
Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care, the only Catholic home health care agency in Connecticut, serves all denominations. If you or a loved one would like more information, please call 203-238-1441.
