Our Campaign Storyends 31 Mar 2018, 11:59 PM
In celebration of this festive season, we would like to send our
warmest wishes and heartfelt appreciation for all the support received by our generous donors and volunteers over the past 25 years.
Dover Park Hospice was founded in 1992 as a secular, non-profit organisation to meet the growing need in Singapore for hospice care. Since managing our first patient in 1995, we have brought care and comfort to more than 10,000 terminally-ill patients.
The demand for in-patient, as well as home palliative care, will increase by 30% between now and 2020. We are challenged to meet the need through a growth plan to a new facility in 2021 in the new Health City Novena, where we are due to double our in-patient capacity from 50 to 100 beds and to expand our home care and day care teams.
This increased focus on training, expanded patient intake, improvements in quality care for patients and families means that our operating expenditure for FY2017/18 is projected to increase to about $14.5 million. We rely on kind donations to allow us to continue caring for the terminally-ill and to train and educate the next generation of caregivers.
In celebration of Christmas, we hope to receive continued support from generous supporters like yourselves so that Dover Park Hospice can continue its good work of Making Every Moment Matter.
About The Charity
Dover Park Hospice was founded in 1992 as a secular, nonprofit organisation to meet the growing need in Singapore for hospice care for terminally-ill patients. It is Singapore's first purpose-built hospice, designed to provide a serene environment close to nature.
Open to everyone regardless of age, race, religion or income level, Dover Park Hospice is dedicated to meeting the unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those who are nearing the end of life's journey. The goal is to enhance the living, comfort the dying and support the grieving with compassion and dignity.
To cover its operating expenditure which is estimated at $19.3 million per year, Dover Park Hospice relies a lot on fundraising activities and kind donations from generous well-wishers and corporations.
