Caring for a friend or loved one with a life-limiting illness is an indescribable challenge. It is an honor and a privilege to play this role in a cherished person’s life – yet it can also be an exhausting and overwhelming experience. At Arkansas Hospice, we want you to know that you are not alone.
We focus on the caregiver as well as the patient. Our goal is to enhance the quality of time you have left together – no matter how long that is. By letting us know what your loved one needs, we can work together to determine the best plan of care possible for all involved. Our hospice care teams go wherever our patients call home and are available 24 hours a day. Many who benefit from our services say that they wish they had pursued hospice care sooner.
Again, all of this can be overwhelming – so much so that caregivers can become so absorbed with meeting their patients’ needs that they neglect their own. Getting food and rest, carving out time to relax and asking for help when needed are key factors to maintaining good health and peace of mind. Remember that by taking caring of yourself, you will be better able to continue caring for your friend or loved one.

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.
