Dealing with a life-limiting illness can be overwhelming. You face a lot of complicated decisions, often very quickly. It’s hard to know how to find your way through the ever-changing healthcare system, how to continue living as independently as possible, and how to secure the care you need to be comfortable. Arkansas Hospice can help.

We will work with you to create a customized care plan, bringing you a coordinated team of support from specially trained clinicians and volunteers. Our care will address your medical needs while also enhancing emotional, spiritual and social well-being. We go wherever you live, whether that is your home or one belonging to a friend or family member, an assisted living facility or a nursing home. We also have Arkansas Hospice inpatient centers in Little Rock, Hot Springs and Russellville to serve patients with advanced illnesses who have pain and symptoms that cannot be managed elsewhere.

You and your family will be the most important members of our hospice team. By letting us know your needs, we can work together to find the best possible plan of care for your situation. And, if you or your family wish, your personal physician can remain involved in the care process and work with the hospice team to meet your needs.

Our health professionals are experts in pain and symptom control and are available around the clock – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Plus, as a not-for-profit organization, we believe that fear of costs should never prevent a person from having access to our services, and our patients are cared for regardless of ability to pay. In all we do, your dignity, comfort and peace of mind matters most.

Hospice services are covered by Medicare or Medicaid, private insurance, private pay or through charitable care. This care is provided to all in need of our services regardless of age, sex, race, creed, marital status, sexual orientation, color, national origin, religion, citizenship status, veteran status, illness, handicap, disability or ability to pay.

It is possible that a patient will improve, resulting in discharge from hospice services. Or the patient or caregiver might decide to stop hospice care to seek aggressive, curative treatment. Hospice services can easily be resumed, if needed, at a later time.
