Our Campaign Story

ends 15 Oct 2017, 11:59 PM

I'm helping to raise this campaign, conjuction with Assisi Dinner 2017. Your generous donation would certainly help to defray the patient's medical cost while they are at Assisi Hospice.

Your generous contribution will definitely help to elevate some financial burdens shouldered by them or their caregivers!

Thank you and God bless you!

About Campaign

At Assisi Hospice, we provide compassionate and personalised palliative care for our patients regardless of race, faith or financial position. About 60 per cent of our patients come from the most needy financial profile. The Assisi Dinner is a key fundraising event which we hope to raise more than a million dollars to allow us to sustain our ability to take care of the terminally ill and their loved ones.
Mr Quek Yee Boey is one of our Home Care patient. He is 73 years old, used to work as a construction worker most of his life and his last job was as a cleaner. He suffers from stage 4 cancer and is on social welfare. He is staying in a one-room rental flat with his brother who works long hours as a security guard. Should his symptoms deteriorate, he would be considered for inpatient care at Assisi Hospice. Your support would ensure that our patients can live their remaining days in comfort and dignity.

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.
