In your home, on your terms
Arkansas Hospice provides a comprehensive program of care to patients and families facing life-limiting illness. Hospice is a philosophy of care, not a specific place of care.
Arkansas Hospice enables patients with a projected lifespan of six months or less to live their final days to the fullest in the comfort of their own homes – or in home-like settings – surrounded by loved ones. Arkansas Hospice can help when:
- There is a life-limiting prognosis.
- The patient and family request expert symptom control and pain management, rather than aggressive, curative treatment. There is an exception for pediatric patients, who can receive Arkansas Hospice comfort care concurrently with curative care treatment.
- The illness has advanced and there are questions about options of care.
A change in the focus of care
We provide comprehensive care designed with the patient’s comfort and individual needs in mind.
