Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM

Learning that one's illness is not responsive to curative medical treatment and will worsen and eventually lead to death can be traumatic and difficult to process.

Assisi Hospice provides end-of-life care for patients of any race, faith and financial condition with terminal illness.

Assisi Hospice serves more than 2,000 patients yearly and in 2019, helped with 20 pro bono funerals (inpatient). 48% of Assisi Hospice's patients are poorest of the poor and means tested to the lowest income level.

These patients may not have years to their life, but your generosity can help them live their remaining days with less pain, less suffering, more comfort, more love and with dignity.

Will you help these needy patients with terminal illness live and leave well?

*Special note to a special donor:
Many people are not comfortable hearing about end-of-life matters. I'm real glad you have read this far. Thank you.

It is not an easy journey for the patients and their families and it is heart-warming to know that there are angels, like you, who are ready to help.

Thank you so much.

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.
