First-ever design study calls for the next generation hospice to be hospitable, community-friendly and life-affirming

20140313-2Commissioned by the Lien Foundation and ACM Foundation, the “Hospitable Hospice” Handbook was developed by healthcare design consultancy, fuelfor, to look into the inpatient hospice experience. Over the course of nine months,  the design team conducted extensive fieldwork into Singapore’s Hospice sector through interviews, observations and workshops. The Handbook proposed seven concepts and 24 design principles for the hospices and eldercare institutions of tomorrow.
