About Palliative Care

How is palliative care different from hospice?

Mercy Palliative Care - Fort Smith offers supportive care that eases pain and stress for people with serious illnesses. It combines traditional medical therapies with treatment for emotional, social and spiritual needs. Our palliative care team improves the quality of life for both patients and their families.

What can you expect from palliative care?

  • Improved management of pain and symptoms (e.g., fatigue, shortness of breath)
  • Spiritual care that respects your cultural beliefs
  • Ongoing communication and care coordination
  • Help reviewing your goals for care, including advance planning when appropriate
  • Emotional support
