Professional Hospice Care is a locally owned and operated hospice provider with offices in Ruston and Jonesboro. Our staff members have more than 50 years of combined hospice experience and participate in ongoing hospice training to ensure that we provide the most up-to-date hospice care available. Our focus is to provide each individual with the hospice care that will best address their personal needs, including physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Hospice is the “something else” that can be done when the doctors say there are no other curative treatments available for a disease. The decision to utilize hospice services can be a difficult one if not coupled with a clear understanding of what hospice provides and who can benefit from the care. Although hospice care is provided to patients who are nearing the end-of-life, it is not always limited to the last 6 months of life. Medicare has established guidelines for eligibility based on the medical diagnosis and patient status. Enrolling in hospice early may help a loved one develop strong relationships with our staff that help in preparation with end-of-life needs. PHC provides services with family and patient’s needs in mind, allowing the hospice experience to focus on individual concerns and circumstances. If you or a loved one is suffering with an irreversible, life-limiting disease, Professional Hospice Care could be an option. Please don’t hesitate to call. You can never learn about hospice too soon, and it never hurts to know all medical treatment plans available to ensure the best decisions are made regarding care.
