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.

About the Charity

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. Assisi Hospice provides 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. In January 2017, we moved to our new six-storey purpose built hospice which has a homely ambience, and is designed to provide a lot of natural light and contact with nature. With the many cosy quiet spaces and comfortable furnishing, we hope to provide comfort and dignity for patients and loved ones in a life-affirming space. With a doubled capacity for Home Care and Day Care, 85 Inpatient beds, new wards for Dementia Palliative Care and Paediatric Palliative care, a Sensory Garden, Chapel and Roof Terrace, we will serve more than 2,000 patients a year. We are supported by donors, volunteers and corporate organisations who journey with us in our cause. Through meaningful engagements with them and providence, we are able to serve our community of patients and families with love and compassion.
