Inpatient Care

With advanced diseases, patients at end-of-life may develop increasing symptoms such as pain and breathlessness which makes care challenging and do not allow them to be cared for at home. Our inpatient hospice care provides patients with round-the-clock medical, nursing, psychosocial and spiritual care through a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals.

Programme Dignity for Advanced Dementia

In 2014, we launched Programme Dignity under our Home Care service. A collaboration between Temasek Cares, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, the Agency for Integrated Care, and Dover Park Hospice, this special patient-centric initiative provides palliative home care for advanced dementia patients to live out their remaining days with dignity.

Recognising that many of them are suffering in silence with inadequate care at home, Dover Park Hospice established a specialised Advanced Dementia Palliative Home Care Team comprising a resident physician, consulting geriatrician/palliative physician, nurse clinician, and a medical social worker.

This team supports persons with dementia and their families with scheduled home visits and further addresses their needs through phone calls and round-the-clock assistance.

Dover Park Day Care

People with advanced illnesses may gradually become homebound due to the decline of their functional status. As a result, they may be socially isolated. Dover Park Day Care focuses on providing psychosocial and therapy-based care to improve the quality of life for patients, through social engagement and meaningful activities.

R.I.S.E. (Restitutive.Integrative. Supportive. Empowering is a curated 12-week programme that empowers participants with skills and confidence to self-manage breathlessness on their own in the community – through symptom monitoring, physical rehabilitation, building self-awareness and confidence, education and psychosocial support for behavioural change.

With day care service, caregivers are also able to get respite care while their loved ones are being cared for. 


Who We Serve

  • Individuals diagnosed with advanced terminal-illness (cancer or non-cancer), with a prognosis of less than 1 year.
  • Whose symptoms are stable and controlled, and are functionally able to tolerate sitting and traveling to Day Care.
  • Clients with physical and psychosocial care needs that require day time support, monitoring and maintenance. This includes those isolated at home due to advanced illnesses and who wish for community and social interaction, and to participate in meaningful activities.
