Helping pastors support congregation members facing life-limiting illness

By arhospice on July 20th, 2023

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.
