What is Hospice Care?

Guiding with Compassion, Comforting with Care – Your Journey, Our Mission

Hospice Care is a specialized type of medical care focused on providing comfort and support to individuals facing terminal illnesses such as late-stage cancer. Our primary goal is to enhance the quality of life for cancer patients with pain management, symptom relief, pastoral care which includes emotional and spiritual support, and addressing the needs of both the patient and their loved ones.

At Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital, we recognize the significance of Hospice Care and the challenges faced by patients and their families during this stage of the cancer journey. Therefore, we are committed in offering subsidized hospice care to patients through our Cancer Welfare Fund.

Hospice care is supported through funding from the Cancer Welfare Fund at Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital, available for Malaysians seeking assistance.

The Cancer Welfare Fund receives funding through contributions from individuals and companies, either through direct donations or by participating in our hospital’s charity events.

The Fund is set up to provide financial assistance for cancer patients and their families who have difficulties in meeting the costs of healthcare treatments. Patients who need financial aid can contact our Medical Social Welfare team for the application. However, for Hospice Care, no application before admission is required.
