About Campaignends 07 Aug 2020, 11:59 PM
Assisi serves many home palliative care patients who have symptoms that look just like Covid-19 symptoms. During these challenging times, our Home Care nurses continue to care for them; the number of new admissions for Home Care patients have increased compared to the same period in 2019. Our Home Care nurses don gowns, masks, goggles, gloves, shoe covers, caps during their home visits, to protect our patients and themselves. They bear with the physical discomfort and are usually drenched with sweat after the visits. Due to the "no dine-in" regulation during circuit breaker, they also lost the chance to have a proper meal at coffee shops in between their visits.
Our Inpatient ward nurses soldier on to take on added patient load as this helps to free up beds in the acute hospitals, so that those beds can be used to care for Covid-19 patients. Many of them go the extra mile and try to reduce physical contact with their family members as an added precaution. Despite all these challenges, they continue to do their part to serve joyfully and provide comfort and love to our patients and families.
This Nurses Day, be the wind beneath the wings of our lovely nurse angels and show that you C.A.N.! Visit www.icareforassisinurses.sg to leave them a message of love.
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.
We provide 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), we are a charity supported by donors, volunteers and corporate organisations who journey with us in our cause.
