Our Campaign Storyends 30 Jun 2023, 11:59 PM
As a team, Project Afterglow is interested in serving palliative care patients as they are a vulnerable group of people who really need greater support from the wider community. In addition, 50% of patients at Assisi belong to the lowest income group, which means that they are highly likely to face secondary concerns with regards to the financial security of their families that they are leaving behind. We want to put ourselves in their shoes and provide our time and energy to the patients at Assisi. We find service incredibly enjoyable and enriching, and we hope to become more empathetic, gain useful experiences for the future, and grow as people.
About The Charity
Journey with us to support our needy patients with terminal illness and their caregivers. 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.
We provide 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), we are a charity supported by donors, volunteers and corporate organisations who journey with us in our cause.
