Supportive Care Services

Supportive Care, also known as Palliative Care, is a type of care for those with serious illnesses. Anyone with a serious illness can benefit from Supportive Care as you can continue to treat your illness without worrying about having to choose one type of care or the other.

With the help and guidance of your Supportive Care team, the type of care you receive will depend upon your individual needs and goals. From reducing pain to helping you or your loved one better understand your illness, your medical care should encompass every aspect of your well-being: BODY, MIND and SPIRIT.
