HCA Hospice Care (HCA) is a registered charity in Singapore providing comfort and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses, regardless of age, religion, ethnicity, nationality and financial status.
Our focus lies in home hospice care, where dedicated multidisciplinary teams, comprising doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors and trained volunteers, visit patients and their families in their own homes. This service is provided free of charge.
Hospice care is most appropriate when a patient no longer benefits from curative treatment and life expectancy is at less than 12 months. Generally focused on pain and symptom control, hospice care enables patients to spend their last days with dignity and have a good quality of life.
These patients may suffer from any type of life-limiting illness, including end-stage cancer, end-stage heart disease, end-stage renal failure, AIDS and Alzheimer’s Disease, among other illnesses. We serve anyone who requires palliative care, regardless of age, religion, ethnicity, nationality and financial status.
