HCA Oasis @ Outram Day Hospice Christmas Party

The Community Nursing team spread the festive cheer with a Christmas party for patients at HCA's Oasis@Outram Day Hospice on 15th December 2022. They kept the patients engaged and spirits high with games and sing-along sessions led by external carolers. As helping hands, 19 nurse volunteers helped to care for the patients by wheeling them around, and serving them lunch and ice-cream. The celebrations wrapped up with a lucky draw session and patients walk away with a present each in hand. The presence of our nurse volunteers had ultimately made them feel joy at the final phase of their lives – a compliment by the patients worth reminiscing.

Chong Hua Tong Falls and Cancer Screening Event

On 17th November 2022, 32 nurses spent their non-working hours volunteering at Chong Hua Tong (Rivervale), assisting the Community Nursing team with different types of screening: basic falls, cognitive, and cancer (breast, cervical and colorectal). They have received an overwhelming response of 80 residents being screened and recruited under the Community Nurse Post (CNP) which has exceeded their expected turnout rate of 50. If you are interested to find out more, the CNP at Chong Hua Tong is held weekly, every Monday from 9 am to 1 pm.
