Nursing Home Care

Hospice Nursing Home Program

Residents of participating nursing homes are eligible for hospice care. Hospice workers interact with the staff of a nursing home much like they would a caregiver in the family home. The services available to patients in the hospice nursing home program are the same as those available to the patients in their own homes.

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.
