About The Caring Place

The Caring Place of Hot Springs is a ministry of First United Methodist Church and a group of interfaith volunteers in Hot Springs, Arkansas.  We began in 1992 in the basement rooms of First United Methodist Church with six participants, one paid staff member, and a handful of volunteers four hours a day once a week. Today, things have changed quite a bit:


  • We provide services to more than 50 Garland County families four days a week, six hours a day.

  • We have our own facility, complete with large activity room, kitchen and dining rooms, library/resource room, a sick room, chapel, art room, offices, and wonderful fenced outdoor patio area. The facility is secure to ensure our participants' safety.

  • We are licensed and regulated by the State of Arkansas.

  • We are registered as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation.

  • We have a paid staff of six: All have received background criminal checks before being hired.  All have received training throughout the year to keep updated on the latest information available.  One is a CNA.  Two of our staff members are workshop presenters, including 2009's "Continuum of Care" with the Arkansas Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, and 2008's National Brookdale Conference. This three-day intensive training conference held in Denver, Colorado was for those working with people with dementia in day care facilities throughout the United States.

  • We have more than 60 volunteers.  All hands-on volunteers receive on-going training and certification throughout the year on the latest information available.

  • Each semester we host local nursing students for part of their clinical rotations.
