Supportive Care

Who is Eligible for Supportive Care?

You don’t need to be at end-of-life to receive Snowline Supportive Care

Snowline Supportive Care (Palliative Care) is medical and comfort care for the seriously ill to alleviate pain and suffering. It is an extra layer of support for patients living with chronic, serious illness. As soon as patients are diagnosed with a serious illness, they can seek palliative care from Snowline through a doctor referral.

When a cure is possible, supportive care supports the patient receiving treatments. When a cure is not an option, the emphasis shifts to pain relief and physical, psychosocial, and spiritual support to the patient and their family.

Supportive care is intended to complement the treatment provided by the patient’s primary physician and other specialists and is provided by a team of nurses, social workers, and volunteers.
