Hospice Care Services in Singapore
Palliative care can be provided at home, in nursing homes, hospices, specialist clinics, general and community hospitals, catering to every patient’s needs.
Established in 1995, Singapore Hospice Council is a registered charity and an Institution of a Public Character. We are an umbrella body representing organisations that actively provide hospice and palliative care in Singapore.
SHC is committed to improving the lives of patients with serious life-limiting illnesses and to giving support to the loved ones of these patients.
What Does SHC do?
At Singapore Hospice Council (SHC), we are committed to improving the lives of patients with serious life-limiting illnesses and to empowering the journey towards the end-of-life for our patients and their families or caregivers. Together with the 25 members, we want to be the collective voice of the palliative care community and raise awareness of palliative care in Singapore.
With the goal to help the community “Live well and leave well”, we provide easy access to resources on outstanding palliative care services in Singapore. Ensuring vital information regarding associated inpatient hospices are readily available at all times.
At Singapore Hospice Council, we understand the emotional and physical challenges that accompany these circumstances, and we strive to offer comfort, care, and support. Additionally, we recognise the invaluable role of patients’ loved ones, and we extend our assistance to help them navigate the complexities and emotions during this difficult journey.
