Our Campaign Story

ends 01 Oct 2016, 11:59 PM

My mum has spent her last days in Assisi Hospice. Our family has felt the warmth of people who worked there.
I personally would like to contribute my first ebook to all donors of the program. Although the ebook is not of related topic, however, I hope i can create a positive butterfly effect.
We are all connected.

About Campaign

Joyce was a conscientious office worker at a multinational company and like all of us, had plans for the future. But everything changed in 2007 when she was diagnosed with Muscular System Atrophy, a neuro-degenerative disorder that has no cure and will severely limit her movement, balance and quality of life. She was only 41 years old. Slowly Joyce lost her mobility and her ability to work. Assisi Home Care team started to care for Joyce in 2013. They managed her symptoms and provided a much-needed listening ear. In Joyce's own words, "we are not alone; we have a friend in Assisi." Every $250 can provide one home care visit. Help us make every day count for our patients.

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.
