Hospice at Home

Caring for someone at home can be very demanding and stressful for patients, their families and for professional staff.

We are pleased, therefore, to offer a Hospice at Home service for families living within South East Oxfordshire.

Our skilled carers help to support patients to remain at home surrounded by the people they know.

About our care

We offer a range of support, including inpatient care, a seven-day community nursing service and day services, which help people stay at home and provides respite to carers.

Our expert care team includes doctors, nurses, care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational and complementary therapists, social workers, bereavement support workers and volunteer befrienders.

Whether we’re supporting people in hospice or their own homes, our focus is on quality of life – giving every patient the care and support they need to spend the time they have left in the way they choose.

Who provides the care?

The service is delivered by a dedicated team of registered nurses and nursing assistants employed by Sue Ryder. They provide assistance with personal care e.g. assisted washing, toileting and monitoring of symptoms.

When is it available?

The service is available Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.

How do you access the service?

Referrals to the service must be made via GPs, district nurses or other healthcare professionals.
