2. Multi Activity Center (MAC)

Every Wednesday from 10am – 1.00pm at 26 & 28, Lintang Paya Terubong 3, 11060 Air Itam.Penang

This weekly programme builds upon the hospice’s principle of providing whole person care. Advanced cancer patients very often feel like they have lost their independence when their lifestyles change dramatically and they have to cope with challenges such as emotional and social isolation on top of physical pain and discomfort.

MAC attempts to address some of these challenges by facilitating social interaction among patients and volunteers in a conducive environment.
