A cancer “survivor” is anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer, living with cancer, in remission, or free from cancer. The Supportive Care and Survivorship Program at Dignity Health Cancer Institute of Greater Sacramento provides care to enhance a cancer survivor’s quality of life at all stages of their disease.
Supportive care means providing care for all aspects of a survivor’s physical, mental, psychosocial, and spiritual health throughout their cancer journey. It is meant to keep pain and other symptoms controlled, and help with daily physical activities. Supportive care may also be referred to as palliative medicine—a subspecialty that delivers this personalized care along with a team of physicians, nurses, social workers, physical/occupational therapists, and pastoral care.
Our program is available to all patients who are referred by their medical provider or who desire this service on their own. For more information about our program or to make an appointment, call 1.844.556.2189.
