On 24th November 2023, Sarawak Hospice Society donated an entire set of home equipment for home care to Serian Hospital.

 

The donation was accepted by Dr Hii, the paediatrician on behalf of the Hospital Director. During this donation, our team shared our home care experiences. The challenges that we faced and how with good pain control, we got patients to get up and walk around on their own with little support.

 

Our society's aim is to improve symptom control which will provide a good quality of life during the final phase in life. We presented cases to illustrate our point. We also shared how it is crucial that the carer's needs are addressed during home visits. These are challenging issues as they can be multifaceted. We hope to learn and share our experiences as we see more cases.
