Helping people better understand the support a terminally-ill patient needs.
Terminally-ill patients face many challenges, and so do the people who are trying to support them, but might not know how best to.
In order to bring awareness about the availability and accessibility of palliative care and to commemorate World Hospice and Palliative Care Day (WHPCD), Singapore Hospice Council (SHC) and South West Community Development Council (CDC) have come together to organise a concert themed Leave No One Behind.
The virtual concert will be held on Saturday (Oct 9) and will celebrate, support and honour the patients and those who have dedicated their time to provide these patients a better quality of life.
Celebrate World Hospice and Palliative Care Day!

A new role-playing and interactive game called The Living Game will also be launched during the concert.
It will teach you about palliative care services and support available for terminally-ill patients and their families for a better quality of life.
Ms Low Yen Ling, Mayor of South West District said: “We hope the interactive game that stimulates the palliative care journey will bring meaningful insights to youths and the public about the role of palliative care and how it helps caregivers and their loved ones to live and leave well.”
