A serious illness can make us feel as if our life is on hold. The Supportive Palliative Care teams at Baylor Scott and White Health work with your primary team to provide additional medical emotional, and spiritual support for patient and family alike, helping improve quality of life throughout the serious-illness journey
Supportive Palliative Care is a team based medical specialty focusing on comfort, care, and planning for patients and families facing serious illness. Supportive Palliative Care team members help develop a care plan that meets the patient's wants and needs, including management of pain and other symptoms, counseling, spiritual support and other therapies
You can continue to be treated for your illness while working with the supportive palliative care team. If hospice is needed later, your team can help with the transition.
