Palliative Care – Aging Institute
At UAMS, we recognize the importance of palliative care and are committed to providing the best services to elderly Arkansans.
At the Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging, our Palliative Care Clinic focuses primarily on palliative and end of life care for patients who are age 65 and older. Our programs include outpatient clinic, home-based palliative care and nursing home consultations for nursing homes affiliated with the University of Arkansas.
Located in the Thomas and Lyon Longevity Clinic, our team of caring and compassionate specialists includes a palliative care geriatrician, social worker, pharmacist and nutritionist.
For new patients, appointments with the Palliative Care Clinic are by referral only, so please contact your primary care doctor. If needed, you can visit one of the geriatricians in our Longevity Clinic to obtain a referral.
For returning patients, call 501-686-6219. For a referral to our home based program, call 501-526-5438.
What should I bring to the appointment?
For your first appointment, please bring a photo ID and your insurance card along with a list of any medications you’re taking, including over-the-counter medications. You should also bring any medical records you can provide, including slides or test results from other clinics.
For future appointments, please provide updated medical and insurance information.
How do I request a prescription refill or contact a nurse from the clinic?
Please call the clinic at 501-686-6219, or you can request prescription refills during your appointment. If you originally filled your prescription at the UAMS Outpatient Pharmacy, most medications can be refilled online.
