Our day hospice centres see to a patient’s needs away from home, catering to patients who are able to walk or are safely mobile in a wheelchair, and who do not require 24-hour nursing assistance.
At the centres, patients interact with others and engage in constructive and therapeutic activities. Our day hospice programmes are tailored according to the interests and abilities of each patient and include:
• Light exercises and physiotherapy
• Singing and music therapy
• Art and craft sessions
• Pet therapy
• Outings to places of interest
The day hospice centres are open from 10am to 4pm on Mondays to Fridays (weekdays only) and patients can choose to come on days suitable for them. A nominal fee of $15 covers the cost of two-way transport and meals. The fee is means tested.
