Palliative care can also be provided at home.
The home care service by Assisi Hospice provides a critical option for patients and their families who prefer to be cared for at home during the final stage of their lives. The Assisi team of doctors, nurses, medical social workers and counsellors work together to support the the patient's family in caring for the patient at home as much as possible, by helping them manage the symptoms of advanced disease. The team is contactable 24/7 to address any urgent need. The program allows the patients to live out their final days in the comfort of their homes.
With more financial support, the program can cover more patients living all over Singapore.

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.
