Inpatient Centers

INPATIENT CARE

At the heart of Arkansas Hospice is our commitment to improve the quality of life for patients by providing care for them in comfortable settings. While most patients receive care in their home, nursing home or assisted living facility, there may be times when respite care by hospice professionals around the clock is needed for stabilization and to provide relief for usual caregivers.

Patients who need evaluation and treatment for pain, nausea or other physical symptoms too difficult to control in their home setting may receive inpatient care. Inpatient hospice admissions are typically short-term stays for aggressive symptom management to improve quality of life and make it possible for the patient to return to their home setting.

Patient guests will find Arkansas Hospice inpatient centers to be inviting, peaceful and accommodating. Our patients benefit from a full range of hospice services on-site to ensure their physical, emotional and spiritual needs are met.

Families will also receive support and guidance from an interdisciplinary team including physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, grief support and volunteers.

As a pioneer of hospice care, Arkansas Hospice opened the first hospice inpatient center in Arkansas in February 2000. Now, we have three inpatient centers to serve patients with advanced illnesses who have physical symptoms that cannot be managed in other settings.

For patients and families in our service area who may live too far from one of our own inpatient centers, arrangements have been made with local area healthcare facilities to provide an inpatient setting managed by the patient’s Arkansas Hospice care providers. Inpatient services include:

  • Physician-directed care
  • Registered nurse on-site 24 hours a day
  • Personal care 24 hours a day
  • Social worker services for the patient and family
  • Chaplain and spiritual assistance
  • Volunteer support
  • Diagnosis-related medications
  • Medical equipment and supplies
  • Grief support
