Palliative & Supportive Care

Palliative care to support you through it all

The Sparrow Palliative Care Program was founded in 2002 to ensure the delivery of compassionate, supportive care for patients dealing with serious illness. We are committed to helping our patients and their loved ones meet the challenges -- no matter what they may be. We believe in maintaining patient dignity while supporting individual patient and family wishes.

Palliative care focuses on the whole person, no matter the diagnosis. Our mission is to provide compassionate care to everyone, every time. Palliative care provides the opportunity to review goals of care when facing serious illness and is appropriate at any stage, as well as working alongside curative treatments. We're here to support you, provide management tools and to help maintain your quality of life.

Our commitment to you

We are committed to relieving symptoms including, but not limited to, pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, constipation, nausea, loss of appetite, depression, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping. Our team works for you along with your primary care physician to identify needs, understand options, provide symptom control and review the goals of care when facing serious illness. Our Palliative Care Team is a physician-led, multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals from the community who are committed to excellence in helping you in whatever way your illness requires.
