Its other services and programmes include day hospice care, paediatric palliative care (Star PALS), bereavement support and outreach programmes such as the Young Caregivers Programme (yCG).

Vision, Mission & Values

Our Logo

Following a rebranding exercise in 2012, the corporate logo was redesigned to better depict our service philosophy. The stylised Chinese character for human “ ” is used here both as a symbol and a design element to reflect that we are an organisation that is human-centric. The logo’s house-like shape highlights our service as the largest palliative home care provider with the stylised character sitting on the organisation’s name like a roof of a house. The colour pink is associated with the universal love of others, and also depicts tenderness.
