Chinese New Year is a time of abundance. However, for Mdm Ng Guat Wah, 68, Chinese New Year is a quiet affair with just a simple meal of packed dishes at the couple's one-room rented flat.
Mdm Ng is Assisi Hospice's homecare patient since October 2017. She used to work as a hawker but had to close her stall at Telok Blangah food centre because she suffered from heart and kidney failure. With no savings, she relies on her husband who does odd jobs as a forklift driver.
With a tendency for fluid overload that is detrimental to Mdm Ng's condition, our homecare team manages her medical symptoms at home, saving cost for Mdm Ng who otherwise will need hospitalization.
Let's start this Lunar New Year with a meaningful gesture to help for Mdm Ng and many others.

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.
