Our Care Team
Facing a life-limiting illness can be a difficult time for the individual and all involved. The Care Team at Fairfield County House is here to help. The cornerstone of our organization, our Care Team is comprised of talented, skilled professionals with a variety of backgrounds and unique work experiences. Working to provide personal engaging care to each resident, their skills go beyond the ordinary as they provide comfort, compassion, and even humor to the residents, their families, and friends during their pivotal last days when every moment is as treasured as the next.
The team is led by Doreen Burgos, MSN, RN, who has a vast background in hospice and end-of-life care. The staff is comprised of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nursing assistants, each with extensive experience in their field. Our team works seamlessly with the hospice care agency nurses in the delivery of the resident's Plan of Care in a comfortable setting to maximize each resident's quality of life. Through purposeful interactions with residents and family members, they can identify what is most important to them and act on it, helping them maintain a life filled with meaning, comfort, and dignity.
Our well-rounded team shares a passion for end-of-life care and prides themselves on fostering a nurturing and serene environment so those who walk through our doors may worry less about why they are here and enjoy their time together more.

Marie Ludy C., LPN - I came to work here because it's new and exciting for hospice patients. As an experienced hospice nurse, I think it's a good place to be. I like that the house can accommodate up to six residents, which allows us to give more individualized care than if we were larger. I like getting to know the residents through one-on-one interactions. I hope that more people find us and utilize our home as their home.
Lesa B., LPN - I was drawn to work here because I wanted to be able to care for people in their final stage of life, in a beautiful place. My favorite thing about being here is our residents. One of the most rewarding things for me has been learning about end-of-life and being there for each individual.
Aesha F., CNA - I was drawn to work here because I liked that it was a newer concept for Connecticut and a new adventure for me. What I like most about being at Fairfield County House is the people and staff, and being able to rally care for the residents individually. The most rewarding thing for me has been the compassion for others on a whole new level.
Marie J., CNA - I like to work with the elderly, especially those that need end-of-life care. I felt very welcome here. I enjoy taking care of the residents and finding little ways to make them happy. We have a great team that gets along well.
