Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre is an independent registered charity in Hong Kong, situated within a beautiful and purpose-built architecture in the grounds of Tuen Mun Hospital. The permanent centre, which was designed by Frank Ghery and opened in March of 2013, provides informational, psychosocial and emotional support to people affected by cancer including their families and friends, empowering them to live with, through and beyond the illness regardless of their journey stage.
Following the ideas of cancer care laid out by their founder Maggie Keswick Jencks with her own cancer experience, Maggie’s Centre is a place specially designed for people affected by cancer to find hope, support and peace. The Centre offers four scopes of services that hospital environments and busy personnel may not be able to provide:
1) Informational and Practical Support: including consultation with oncology nurses, nutrition and health talks, workshops, books and DVD lending service and internet access etc.
2) Emotional and Psychosocial Support: including individual, couple and family consultation, cancer support groups and psycho-educational programmes.
3) Relaxation and Stress management: including meditation, music therapy, mindful yoga, laughter yoga, tai chi, art therapy etc.
4) Warm & welcoming space: the Centre offers a peaceful yet uplifting environment for the Centre users. The vivid yet elegant garden allows people to feel inspired, special and cared for.
A multi-disciplinary team of professional staffs including oncology nurses, social workers and clinical psychologists offer the support people need to find their way through cancer. Centre users can also talk to others users who have experienced similar situation and they empower cancer patients to actively seek help and find ways to fight cancer.
All of our services are free of charge and no referral or appointment is needed
