“We are forever grateful to Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket. Our beloved mother was dying and we were in for a roller coaster ride of highs and lows. Palliative & Supportive Care had been there with weekly visits but now we needed more frequent visits with their knowledgeable staff to guide us through this bewildering process. When we couldn’t find answers in their book, When Death is Near–A Caregiver’s Guide or within ourselves, we called their staff and held family meetings. Throughout this period, we knew we could rely on them for compassionate concern and insightful advice to help us travel with our mother to the end of the ride. And at that end, she sprouted her wings and became the bird she always longed to be.”

“The practical, emotional, and spiritual support and advice I have received from the Palliative and Supportive Care staff and the other members of its cancer support group are as integral to my health and well-being as any cancer treatment. The group is a safe harbor for those of us with cancer, or who love and care for someone with cancer, to find understanding and compassion from open hearts and shared experiences. It’s corny, but chemotherapy keeps me alive and the support group keeps me living.”

“I’ve lost both my parents in the past 10 years. Palliative & Supportive Care of Nantucket was there. Of course they were wonderful caring for my parents, making sure they were as comfortable as possible and helping them to pass peacefully. But what was surprising and what was so important to our entire family was the services and support we received throughout the journey, even after their passing. Some of the many things they helped and advised us with were: medications, helping us find caregivers, helping deal with family dynamics, and, of course, just being there with a shoulder to lean on. Their knowledge and personal experiences with death and grieving helped us all tremendously.”
