When my grandmother was in her final days of life I was afraid to go see her. As a young woman I had never experienced the loss of a loved one and I didn’t know what to expect. But when I walked into her hospital room to say goodbye there was something that felt “right” about it, and although my heart was hurting it was also filled with peace. Death comes to all of us, and when it does come there is something comforting about having people beside you to help answer all of your questions and provide your family with the care they need.
For more than 15 years patients and their family members have turned to Circle of Life for care and comfort. It’s clear when you walk through the front doors at Circle of Life that patients and families come first. From the beautiful surroundings to the friendly staff you instantly feel welcomed and cared for.
At Circle of Life the team focuses on quality of life, comfort, and dignity for the family and patient. They provide this by caring for the patient’s body, mind, and soul through a team of doctors, advocates, social workers, and chaplains.
They bring hospice care to you wherever you live in Northwest Arkansas; in your home, a nursing home, assisted living or in one of their inpatient facilities. And their staff is available for questions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and will visit patients on nights and weekends if necessary. And services are offered often with little to no out-of-pocket expense.
Circle of Life is fully accredited and certified by the Arkansas Department of Health and Medicare. They have in-house facilities in Springdale and Bentonville. If you or your family is facing end-of-life issues, Circle of Life would love to assist you. Or if you’d like to become involved with Circle of Life they have many volunteer opportunities from office work to volunteering with patients.
