HCA Home Hospice
Our five dedicated multidisciplinary health care teams are on call round-the-clock, 7 days a week, making about 40,000 home visits island-wide every year. Besides serving from our central headquarters at Novena, we have four satellite centres spread across Woodlands, Hougang, Bedok and Jurong to be more accessible to patients.
Each team comprises a doctor, four to five nurses, one medical social worker, one social work assistant and trained volunteers who offer support and care for no charge based on their areas of expertise and the particular needs of patients and their families:
- Providing medical prescriptions.
- Coaching families on how to care for their loved one at home.
- Assisting patients and their families with the emotional and social aspects of coping with death, grief and loss.
HCA Hospice Care also provides an after-office-hours patient care help line to patients and caregivers.
To qualify for either hospice home care or day care service, patients have to be referred to HCA Hospice Care by their doctors, who should complete an application form. Please click here for a patient referral form.
