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.
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.
Assisi Hospice provides hospice and palliative care to patients with life limiting illnesses, caring for them and their families, regardless of faith, age, race and financial position. A Catholic charity, it believes that compassionate end-of-life care is less about 'waiting for the last day' and more about 'living to the last day'. Patients' symptoms when properly managed allow them to live life comfortably with peace and dignity. Each year, we care for more than 1,000 patients. To meet the growing needs and demands, we are expanding our services and increasing our support in the areas of nursing, medical, counselling, spiritual, social and emotional care, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
