About Campaign

At Assisi Hospice, we provide compassionate and personalised palliative care for our patients regardless of race, faith or financial position. About 60 per cent of our patients come from the most needy financial profile. The Assisi Dinner is a key fundraising event which we hope to raise more than a million dollars to allow us to sustain our ability to take care of the terminally ill and their loved ones.
Mr Quek Yee Boey is one of our Home Care patient. He is 73 years old, used to work as a construction worker most of his life and his last job was as a cleaner. He suffers from stage 4 cancer and is on social welfare. He is staying in a one-room rental flat with his brother who works long hours as a security guard. Should his symptoms deteriorate, he would be considered for inpatient care at Assisi Hospice. Your support would ensure that our patients can live their remaining days in comfort and dignity.

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.
