However, in 2014, Mr Ng was diagnosed with hepatitis B and suffered complications like swelling in his legs and stomach. His godson, Seng Huat, selflessly took up the responsibility of caring for him.
In 2019, Mr Ng was further diagnosed with rectal cancer. He has bowel incontinence and needs to be on diapers. He came under the care of Assisi Hospice's Home Care service in March last year. Our doctors and nurses visit him regularly to monitor and manage his symptoms and care needs. We provided donated items like diapers to ease their financial burden, and helped to improve their living conditions, for example by arranging to clear the bed bugs in their home. Our medical social worker offers a listening ear and support to Seng Huat, who is now in his 60s. Seng Huat is also assured that Mr Ng can continue to receive care through our Inpatient service should he deteriorate.
51 percent of Assisi Hospice's patients are poorest of the poor and means tested to the lowest income level. Your donation will enable us to provide care and comfort to patients like Mr Ng and selfless caregivers like Seng Huat, and bring cheer to them this festive season
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.
