Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket

Description of resource: Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket is a specialized health care program dedicated to providing excellent physical, psychological, social, and spiritual care for persons with life-threatening illness and their families. Services are provided through an interdisciplinary team of professionals and volunteers and focus on alleviating physical, emotional, and spiritual symptoms of distress and enhancing personal growth and well-being in order to help patients and their families attain the highest quality of life possible. Services are available in any setting (home, office, hospital, nursing home) throughout the continuum of illness, from diagnosis through cure or, if cure is not possible, through advancing illness and death. Operated as a department of Nantucket Cottage Hospital, the program is funded by Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket Foundation, a separate, tax-exempt public charity.
