At Assisi Hospice, we provide palliative care for patients and support caregivers like 72-year-old Mr Toh Ah Seng. Mr Toh's wife, Mdm Cheok Ai, was diagnosed with stage four cervical cancer in 2017. Due to her intellectual difficulties, Mr Toh was the lone caregiver of their only son with autism. Mdm Cheok soon needed care beyond what Mr Toh could possibly provide and was admitted into Assisi Hospice in February 2018.

This care arrangement was vital to help Mr Toh cope with his family's care needs and to have the space to simply grieve. Our social worker provided a safe outlet for him to express his grief through narrating the story of his life. Being able to converse with our social worker in Hokkien about his life, and to express his thoughts and feelings, was poignant and therapeutic. Assisi Hospice also supported him as he planned his onward journey with his son.

Our annual Christmas Light-Up brings the joy of Christmas to Assisi Hospice for our patients and their families. For them, this Christmas will be one to cherish because it may be their last Christmas together. Help us make this Christmas a magical one for them by doing your part to light-up our 11-metre-tall giant Christmas tree! Every $10 donation will light a bulb on our tree, representing your well wishes and blessings. Your donation will enable us to continue providing patients and families like Mr Toh Ah Seng's with the medical care and psychosocial support they need.

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.
