About Us

Circle of Life is committed to compassionate end-of-life care for a person’s body, mind, spirit and family when there is no longer a cure.  Care teams of physicians, nurses, aides, social workers, chaplains and volunteers provide care in our patient’s home, in assisted living facilities or wherever they may reside. Established in 1992, we are now the largest nonprofit hospice provider in Northwest Arkansas serving Benton, Carroll, Madison & Washington counties. Circle of Life is fully accredited and certified by Arkansas Department of Health and Medicare. Circle of Life provides acute symptom and pain management in two free-standing inpatient hospice homes located at 901 Jones Road in Springdale and 1201 NE Legacy Parkway in Bentonville. Circle of Life has recently been recognized as the “Best of the Best” in Hospice and Home Healthcare by the Arkansas Democrat Gazette in 2017 & 2018 and was named “Nonprofit Organization of the Year” in 2019 by the Greater Bentonville Chamber of Commerce. Circle of Life is committed to providing bereavement support to the Northwest Arkansas community at no charge. We operate two Grief Centers housed in our inpatient hospice homes.  Grief Center programs include support groups, grief classes, children’s workshops, and workplace and school grief services.

Here’s Why Circle of Life is the premier hospice provider in NWA:

  1. Circle of Life ranked in the top 12% nationally for employee and engagement satisfaction.
  2. When asked how families would rate our hospice, 90% gave a rating of 9 or 10 on a scale from 1-10.
  3. When families were asked if they would recommend our hospice to friends and family, 92% answered “Definitely, Yes.”
