Arkansas Hospice provides a comprehensive program of care to patients and families facing life-limiting illness. Hospice is the practice of care, not a specific place of care.
Arkansas Hospice enables patients with a projected lifespan of six months or less, due to serious illness, to live their final days to the fullest in the comfort of their homes – or in home-like settings – surrounded by loved ones. Arkansas Hospice can help when:
There is a life-limiting prognosis.
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.
