About Campaign

ends 30 Nov 2016, 12 AM

It is with this belief of "home is the best" that St. Andrew's Community Hospital (SACH) continues to implement services in the community, to help our patients age and recover well in-place.

Madam Patom, 66, suffers from chronic heart failure and diabetes, and had a lower limb amputation four years ago. She lives in a rental flat with her son.

She was first referred by the Agency for Integrated Care to SACH for integrated home healthcare services. It include Case Management, Home Medical, Home Nursing, Home Therapy and Palliative Home Care.

With the setting-up of St. Andrew's Senior Care - JOY Connect at Beach Road, operated by SACH, Madam Patom started attending its Day Care Centre and the nurse there monitored her health regularly. At JOY Connect, Madam Patom actively participates in art and crafts, exercise, cooking and dancing sessions with her friends and neighbours. She also volunteered to mentor new clients at the Centre.

SACH's services in the community are part of the hospital's wide spectrum of care. To bridge the gap for the provision of more eldercare services, SACH introduced the Dementia and Palliative Care programmes in recent years. The Dementia Care Service is a person-centered inpatient dementia care programme, for patients with mild to severe dementia and require rehabilitative care. Palliative Care Service cares for terminally ill patients admitted to SACH by a doctor's referral. It is the first and only inpatient palliative care service in the East.
