Staring Death In The Face Every Day

Staring Death In The Face Every Day

Death is no stranger to Methodist Welfare Services Assistant Chaplain Ms Chua Chiew Poh. Her current comfortable relationship with death began when she lost her husband to pancreatic cancer before the age of 40.  Although she was thriving in the property finance industry then, she felt called into hospice work, and in 2010, she became a regular volunteer with MWS Home Hospice.

Since 2017, Chiew Poh has been working as a full-time assistant chaplain with MWS, journeying with MWS Home Hospice patients through their final days. We sat down for a quick Q&A with her to find out more about how she helps patients plan and prepare for the end of their lives spiritually.
