Dover Park Hospice

Description
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.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.
