Learn@HCA #18: Creating more good days at the end of life

A session by Outstanding Social Worker Award recipient, Ms Tan Ching Yee and Senior Palliative Care Nurse, Ms Alice Heng

17 October 2020

When we think about a person coming close to the end of their life, we often imagine their days to be filled with pain, sorrow and suffering. At HCA Hospice Care, we have journeyed with many patients who have taught us the meaning of living to the fullest till the end.  In this session, we hope to share stories about the lives of people who taught us the value of life and living; strengths and resilience; hope and possibilities. You will also hear from our dedicated and experienced nurse who will share practical tips on ways that you can create meaningful moments together.  Come join us, share your stories and in return be an inspiration to others.
