Assisi Hospice will be celebrating our annual Christmas Light Up with our patients and families on 1 Dec 2017. For the family of Mdm Wong, this will be their first Christmas without her around.
Mdm Wong, an Assisi patient who suffered from Stage 4 cancer and her husband who had multiple aliments and chronic pain , travelled around in his motorized scooter, can only relied on odd jobs to make a living. When she was referred to Assisi Hospice, we supported the family financially by seeing to their meals and reimbursed Mr Tan for the transport and providing assistance to cover the hospital bill. When Mdm Wong wanted to spend her last days, the team saw to the arrangements that she is well cared for at home and she was able to have her last words with her mother and sister before she passed away peacefully on 16 September 2017.
Please help us to make this Christmas a meaning one for our patients as this may be their last Christmas they have to spend with their love ones.

About the Charity

Assisi Hospice provides palliative care for patients and families that preserves their dignity and quality of life. Patients of any race, faith and financial position are cared for by our team of specialist doctors, nurses, allied health and pastoral care professionals. When faced with life limiting illnesses, our patients receive medical care, as well as psychosocial, emotional and spiritual care. Assisi Hospice provides care for patients across the continuum of Home Care, Inpatient and Day Care. This allows patients and family members to journey with a clinical team they are familiar with, and to receive care in the way that they need. Our six-storey purpose-built hospice provides a homely ambience with cosy spaces for patients and their loved ones. With 85 Inpatient beds, including specialised wards for Dementia Palliative Care and Paediatric Palliative Care, a Day Care Centre and the outreach of our Home Care team, we serve more than 2,000 patients a year. Founded in 1969 by the Sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM), Assisi Hospice celebrates 50 years of God's blessings in 2019. With God's grace and support from donors, volunteers and corporate organisations, we will continue our journey of love in serving our community of patients and families with compassion.
