One common myth about hospice care is that it is only for the elderly. Arkansas Hospice actually cares for patients of all ages, including children.

In fact, government regulations now give families with seriously ill children a new option called concurrent care. This means that parents of children ages 20 and younger can continue to pursue a cure for their child while, at the same time, also benefitting from the comfort of hospice care.

Arkansas Hospice served the state’s first concurrent care patient in 2013 and continues to help seriously ill children and their families gain access to the care and emotional support they need.
