Assisted Living Care

Hospice is a special healthcare program designed to meet the needs of patients and families who are faced with a life-limiting illness. The hospice goals are to assist the patient in living as comfortably and fully as possible at home. Although home is the ideal environment, sometimes assisted living is the best option for many patients and their families. Washington Regional Hospice provides care to hospice patients living in assisted living centers. The hospice team offers a variety of services to both patients and their families.

The service area for Washington Regional Hospice includes Arkansas patients and families residing within a 50-mile radius of Fayetteville. A typical patient base may include people from Benton, Madison and Washington counties.
