Every year, we celebrate Christmas with our patients and their families at the Assisi Hospice Christmas Light Up event. The highlight of the evening will be the lighting of a 30 ft tree with 30,000 bulbs. The lights symbolise hope, peace and joy for our patients and families. For many of them, this is their last Christmas, and also a precious opportunity to gather with loved ones.
This Christmas, you can make a difference to the lives of our patients. Every $10 gift will symbolically light a bulb on our tree, representing your well wishes and blessings. More importantly, your donation will help us fulfill our mission of providing palliative care for patients with life limiting illnesses.
To meet the growing need of community for palliative care, we are expanding our services when we move to the new purpose-built Assisi Hospice in January 2017. As a charity, we depend heavily on public donations to meet our operating expenses. This year, we need to raise S$7.8 million to continue our care services. Support our cause to care for our patients.
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.
