DANBURY, Conn.—Two representatives of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage recently visited Regional Hospice and Home Care’s Center for Comfort Care & Healing. Coldwell Banker was an early supporter of the building campaign for the center.
Cathleen Smith and Deborah Versackas from Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and its parent company, NRT LLC, toured the center, which includes child and adult bereavement programs at its Healing Hearts Center for Grief and Loss.
Cynthia Emiry Roy, Regional Hospice president and CEO, offered her thanks.
“Dreamers, doers, believers and thinkers such as our friends at Coldwell Banker made the new center a reality,” Roy said. “Their generosity honors the unique greatness and courage we see every day and in every family who faces the challenges of a terminal illness.
"Coldwell Banker has already brought comfort to more than 250 patients who have spent meaningful, serene last days together with their families in the center.”
The hospice provides families with a residential option for end-of-life care. The foundation donated funding to build and furnish a private patient suite in the west wing of the center that also offers amenities for family members to comfortably stay with their loved one during care.
“We are so pleased to support the Regional Hospice and Home Care’s Center for Comfort Care & Healing,” said Cathleen Smith, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Connecticut & Westchester County, N.Y.
“The center provides critical support to patients and families during a most challenging time in their lives and works hard to comfort and preserve the dignity of its patients. We greatly appreciate the services that the Regional Hospice offers, and I am especially grateful to the affiliated sales associates and employees whose generosity has made this contribution possible.”
