What is supportive care?

Coping with serious illness is difficult and often a challenging time for patients and their loved ones. The Supportive Care team can guide you and provide assistance so you’re comfortable and confident in your care – at any age or stage of serious illness. Our team of physicians, nurses, social workers, and other caregivers are here to help you and those close to you to:

  • Clarify goals and choices of treatment
  • Address fears and concerns
  • Manage difficult symptoms
  • Understand additional programs and resources available to you
  • Offer information on advance care planning

How to schedule appointments

Supportive care can be provided along with other treatment. We encourage members facing serious, advanced illness to schedule a consultation with a program specialist.
