Hospice Home Care’s 36-bed Comfort Care Center was built to support General Inpatient, Respite Care and Routine Home Care services. Ample parking and front door access greet each visitor and family member when they arrive. Each room has a private view of the rolling grassy hills and trees that surround the property with individual outdoor access. Located at 2200 Bowman Road in Little Rock, Arkansas, the Comfort Care Center is a serene and beautiful place to receive 24-hour hospice care.
Often, patients choose to stay temporarily for respite services while their families take a break from daily caregiving. Sometimes a patient may choose to stay on a residential basis well before the end of their journey. However, for many families the Comfort Care Center is chosen for their loved one when they can no longer return home from the hospital to manage the final journey as the primary caregiver. We welcome the opportunity to care for each person and their family for as long as we are needed.
The Comfort Care Center is also available for residential care on a private pay basis. Respite Care and General Inpatient care are for short episodes of care only. Some patients choose to remain at the Comfort Care Center and this becomes their home, allowing them to continue on the Routine Home Care Hospice Benefit.
The Comfort Care Center has the highest staffing levels, with 24-hour Registered Nurse staffing, and significant levels of Aide support. Physicians and Nurse Practitioners also make rounds daily. Additional services provided by hospice include:
- 24/7 Registered Nurse coverage
- Physician or Nurse Practioner Care available as needed
- Bathing and personal care by a certified nursing assistant
- Regular visits from the Hospice Chaplain, Social Worker and Volunteer Coordinator
- Hospice-trained and certified volunteer support
- Family bereavement services
- Medical equipment and supplies

Students from Hendrix College in Searcy, who are planning to become physicians, recently spent a significant number of days volunteering at the Comfort Care Center. They were encouraged to think and reflect upon matters surrounding end-of-life care, and interact with patients and families. The response was incredible! Watch the video to see students, faculty, and hospice staff members share their perspectives on the experience.
Hospice services are covered by Medicare or Medicaid, private insurance, private pay or through charitable care. This care is provided to all in need of our services regardless of age, sex, race, creed, marital status, sexual orientation, color, national origin, religion, citizenship status, veteran status, illness, handicap, disability or ability to pay.
Hospice does not mean giving up hope! It is possible that a patient will improve, resulting in discharge from hospice services. Or the patient or caregiver might decide to stop hospice care to seek aggressive, curative treatment. Hospice services can easily be resumed, if needed, at a later time.
