Dover Park Hospice
How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Dover Park Hospice was founded in 1992 as a secular, nonprofit organisation to meet the growing need in Singapore for hospice care for terminally-ill patients. It is Singapore's first purpose-built hospice, designed to provide a serene environment close to nature.
Open to everyone regardless of age, race, religion or income level, Dover Park Hospice is dedicated to meeting the unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those who are nearing the end of life's journey. The goal is to enhance the living, comfort the dying and support the grieving with compassion and dignity.
To cover its operating expenditure which is estimated at $14 million per year, Dover Park Hospice relies a lot on fundraising activities and kind donations from generous well-wishers and corporations.
We adopt a holistic approach to total patient care, with attention not just to their physical needs, but also their social and psychological ones. Our patients have advanced incurable illnesses and are often troubled by symptoms such as breathlessness or nausea. Hence the control of pain and other symptoms is a priority. Equally important is psychosocial care, whether in the form of financial assistance, social activities or formal counselling. Family and friends are included in our circle of care which extends to bereavement support.
