Just as air, food, and water are necessary for the body, connection is needed for the soul. When Stanley* had to move to a nursing facility, he had to leave his desk-top computer behind. For some people, a computer is a means for work, games, or online shopping. For Stanley, it was his way to […]Appetite for Life
You may have spotted one standing at the refrigerator door drinking all the milk straight from the jug. You may have witnessed him eat an afternoon snack of two king size candy bars followed by a large pizza. A box of cereal can’t make it though one day with him. If you’ve observed it or […]The Catch of a Lifetime

“African Americans and other minorities are at risk of not dying well.”– Duke Divinity School Professor Richard Payne Nationally and in Arkansas, too few African Americans benefit from hospice care. Black/African Americans account for 13.2% of the general population (US Census) but only 7.6% of the hospice patients in 2014 according to the National Hospice […]
I have nothing but the best things to say about Arkansas Hospice. They were so good to my Dad before he passed away. The love and care, compassion they showed to my dad was priceless. The nurses and CNA’s that took care of my Dad are the best and always be the best.
We are just starting our dad’s final journey and Arkansas Hospice has been a blessing. They’ve taught us so much already and provide as much support and comfort to the family as they do my dad. I’m grateful they’ll be walking this final path with us.
I love Arkansas Hospice. Every single employee has a heart of gold and takes the best care of their patients.
I would not hesitate at all to recommend this provider for anyone who is considering hospice care for themselves or for a loved one.
Arkansas Hospice took care of my Mom before she passed. It was my first experience with any hospice and I was amazed. They took such great care of her. They treated her with dignity and respect until the end.
So many thanks for the way your staff treated my very dear friend, Jeff, as he raced toward the finish line. Words can’t express my gratitude for helping us to care for him and keep him comfortable. Top-notch professionalism and immediate responses to requests for assistance.
