What do you think you will be doing at age 43? Mr Zaireno Bin Salleh, an Assisi Hospice's patient, has to stop his dreams and treasure each day that he has.
Mr Zaireno started to work at 20 years old. He was hardworking, motivated and wanted a career in facilities management. In 1997, he married his childhood sweetheart and soon have two beautiful kids. He worked through the ranks to provide for his family and got promoted to duty engineer in 2017. Unfortunately, in April 17, he was found to have soft tissue cancer. As the cancer was located near his heart, there was no cure and his time is short. Mr Zaireno is cared for by the Assisi Home Care team since January 18. His wish is to spend his remaining time with his family at home. The team besides managing his pain and disease symptoms, also journeyed with this family, helping them cope with their emotions and practicalities. The family started to face financial hardship as Mr Zaireno, the sole breadwinner, could no longer work. Their daily needs were pressing and no help was available quickly, so Assisi Hospice extended cash assistance promptly. This helped to sustain them while other help is on the way.
Assisi Hospice looks after over 350 Home Care patients at any one time regardless of financial status, race or religion. We appeal for your support and donations to help us make home care accessible to those who are vulnerable, giving them comfort and dignity at the end of their lives.

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.
