We believe that there’s still a lot of living to do. 

Take a Virtual Tour

It’s not always possible to come to Fairfield County House and walk through the residence in person.

In that case, we suggest watching our Virtual Tour video. 

Our Mission

Our goal is to provide professional and compassionate care in a warm and welcoming residence so that people can spend meaningful time with loved ones at the end of life.

Fairfield County House helps our residents leave this world surrounded by family and friends in a supportive environment. We encourage joy in sadness and laughter in sorrow. We believe that there is still a lot of living to do here!"

No one has a better staff to resident ratio at 1 to 3.

We believe this is critical to providing quality, attentive care. 

Fairfield County House is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 2012 dedicated to filling the gap in the delivery of care for those receiving hospice services through a hospice agency. We are the first free-standing residence for people on hospice in Connecticut and are licensed as an assisted living facility.

"I don’t know what I would have done if he had been in any other facility besides Fairfield County House. Because of the design of the house, he has his own door and I do not come into contact with any other person (other than the nurse…) My heart goes out to all the families that cannot do this because of quarantine regulations at this time."
