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. In January 2017, we moved to our new six-storey purpose built hospice which has a homely ambience, and is designed to provide a lot of natural light and contact with nature. With the many cosy quiet spaces and comfortable furnishing, we hope to provide comfort and dignity for patients and loved ones in a life-affirming space. With a doubled capacity for Home Care and Day Care, 85 Inpatient beds, new wards for Dementia Palliative Care and Paediatric Palliative care, a Sensory Garden, Chapel and Roof Terrace, we will serve more than 2,000 patients a year. We are supported by donors, volunteers and corporate organisations who journey with us in our cause. Through meaningful engagements with them and providence, we are able to serve our community of patients and families with love and compassion.
