Kang Le is officially in business!
26 October 2014

HCA Hospice Care’s second day hospice centre was officially opened on the 25th of October, 2014.

The centre targets to cater to an average of 17 patients a day, and will serve patients from the north and west regions. As a day hospice, we hope to:

  • Encourage an active and social lifestyle
  • Provide support and respite for caregivers
  • Provide holistic care by a multi-disciplinary team
  • Provide rehabilitation within disease constraints

Get a taste of what happened that day from the photos below! Check out the full album on our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/hcahospicecare.org.sg.
