Church leaders have high demands on their time, especially when it comes to always being available to support their congregation during times of need. During these trying times, Arkansas Hospice is available to support pastors and their congregation members who are facing life-limiting illnesses.
By enrolling in hospice care sooner rather than later, patients and their family can experience a better quality of life while also receiving additional support from Arkansas Hospice’s team of social workers and grief support specialists.
Watch this in-depth video that explains the benefits of Arkansas Hospice care, and how clergy can utilize this additional layer of support available to them and their congregation. Arkansas Hospice Foundation Board of Directors member Dr. Robert Skinner hosts this discussion with Arkansas Hospice Associate Medical Director Dr. Neal Wyatt and Bereavement Specialist Reba Gaines, as they expand on the aspects of physical care, spiritual support, grief support, and reaching minority communities.

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.
The skilled and professional care and attention your team gave our mother made it possible for Mom to be granted her wish to die comfortably at home.
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.
