Dealing with a life-limiting illness can be overwhelming for the patient and family caregivers. Complicated decisions must be made, often very quickly. It’s hard to know how to find the way through the ever-changing healthcare system, how to continue living as independently as possible and how to secure the care a patient needs to be comfortable. Arkansas Hospice can help you with these concerns and many more.
Arkansas Hospice works with patients and families to create a customized care plan that meets their needs and expectations of comfort and functionality. Bringing a coordinated team of support from specially trained clinicians and volunteers, our care addresses the patient’s medical needs, while also enhancing emotional, spiritual and social well-being for the patient, caregiver and family.
We bring care to the patient where they live, whether that is their 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, as well as contracted facilities across our entire service area, to serve patients with advanced illnesses who have pain and symptoms that cannot be managed elsewhere.
Patients and their 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. The patient’s 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 nonprofit 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 matter 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.
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.
