Why we need YOUR support? At DPH, we believe that:

• Palliative Care is the most basic form of care, and everyone deserves that, esp. during the End-of-Life stage – Everyone wants to be cared for and live their remaining days in and with dignity

• All patients deserve to have and make the choice of care that they desire, and we must respect that choice, no matter how difficult Your donations will allow the Hospice to continue caring for the terminally-ill and train and educate the next generation of caregivers

Since opening its doors, DPH has cared for and brought comfort to about 10,000 terminally-ill patients and their families. And as Singapore's population continues to grey and more people are suffering from modern-life diseases like heart diseases, cancers, and organ failures, we will need to:

• DOUBLE our inpatient facility, to 100 beds from 2021, at a new facility within the Integrated Intermediate Care Hub (IICH) within HealthCity Novena

• EXPAND our Home Care and Programme Dignity for Advanced Dementia services for a fast-ageing society – Home Palliative Care needs to increase to 6,000 places, by 2020 (from current 3,800)

In addition, it is estimated that up to 80,000 adults (< 60-years-old) will suffer from Dementia by 2030 (up from 28,000, in 2012)
