Hospice of the Ozarks is a non-profit subsidiary of Baxter Regional Medical Center dedicated to improving the quality of life for people faced with terminal illness. The program has provided hospice services to residents of Baxter and Marion County Arkansas since 1979.

What Is Hospice?

Hospice of the Ozarks provides support and care for people in the last phases of an incurable illness so they can live as fully and as comfortably as possible. The hospice concept is oriented toward caring for people rather than curing disease and often represents a less expensive and more appropriate method of care. Hospice offers the alternatives of remaining at home, being free of pain, and being attended by family and friends.

  • Personal care
  • Social services and counseling
  • Medications and medical supplies and equipment
  • Spiritual support

  • Transportation
  • Referral to community resources
  • Staff on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Who Pays For Hospice Care

Hospice of the Ozarks is licensed by the Arkansas Department of Health and is approved to provide Medicare, Medicaid, and Champus hospice services. Reimbursement is also received from private insurance.

As a not-for-profit organization, Hospice depends on donations, memorials, and bequests in order to provide care to anyone in need in the community.

Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to provide patient sitting, family assistance, and transportation services. A training program is offered twice a year by the volunteer coordinator.

Support Groups

Caring and Sharing is an informal discussion group for caregivers, friends, and relatives of those who are dealing with a life-threatening illness.

Growing through Grief is a place for anyone in the community who has lost a loved one to gain an understanding of the loss and grief process and how to cope with it.

Coping with Cancer is a support group for people who are living with cancer, whether active or in remission.

The Hospice Team

The Hospice Care Team includes: physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, personal care specialists, specially trained volunteers, chaplains, homemakers, bereavement counselors, and other therapists as needed to care for the individual needs of each patient and family.

Coverage

For instance, many people don't realize that hospice care is covered under a special Medicare and Medicaid Hospice Benefit and that Hope Hospice is the only Medicare and Medicaid-certified hospice serving all of Lee, Hendry and Glades counties in southwest Florida. Many of the items and services covered under this benefit, including medications and medical supplies, are not covered through any other type of health care provider or facility.

Hospice care is available to people of all ages, including children, with a limited life expectancy resulting from any illness. Hospice care is for any person who is experiencing the final phase of their disease. Hope Hospice serves patients with all diagnoses, including:

  • cancer
  • cardiac disease
  • neurological disorders
  • respiratory disease
  • congestive heart failure
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • renal disease
  • liver disease
  • Alzheimer's
  • AIDS

The very special care that Hope Hospice provides is covered by Medicare, Medicaid ,and many insurances.

Continuing community support enables Hope Hospice to never refuse services to patients based upon a lack of reimbursement or their ability to pay

Referrals

Most patients are referred to Hope Hospice by their doctors or other health care professionals. However, anyone can refer patient to Hope Hospice.

We require that their physician approve the hospice admission and certify the patient's medical condition. Early referrals are encouraged so that the patient and family can received all the benefits of hospice care.

St. Francis Hospice

Our Hospice program provides the kind of care, support, and nurturing for patients and their families that helps ease the suffering of a life-limiting disease. We administer medicine and technology to make a patient as physically comfortable as possible, and we also provide specially trained teams of professionals and volunteers who care for the emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and family. Hospice returns the natural process of dying to the home, amid familiar surroundings and the comforting presence of family, and focuses on caring for the whole person, restoring dignity to final days.

When a cure is no longer possible and the patient has decided to stop aggressive treatment, our hospice team (which includes nurses, home health aides, social workers, pharmacists, dietitians, volunteers and chaplains) steps in to provide for the needs of the patient and family. This includes medication for symptom control, skilled nursing care and dedicated volunteer care, as well as counseling and bereavement services for the family for up to 13 months after the patient's death.

Hospice, never attempts to cure the terminal patient, nor do we ever provide false hope. Rather, we provide care beyond cure to ensure that life is full and worthwhile until the end.

Our services are available in Greenville, Anderson, Spartanburg, Pickens, Oconee and Laurens counties and are paid by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance plans. Patients will not be denied services based on their ability to pay.
