The Sue Ryder Palliative Care Hub South Oxfordshire supports people aged 18 and over who are living with life-limiting conditions such as cancer, heart failure and lung disease.
Hospice care is what we call the treatment and support we offer to people with life-limiting conditions. We combine specialist medical care for managing pain and other symptoms, with emotional, practical and spiritual support.
If you’re comfortable at home and would prefer to be cared for there, our Hospice at Home team can bring palliative care to you. Our team of dedicated Sue Ryder Nurses and nursing assistants deliver rapid response and planned care in the community. We also provide assistance with personal care such as assisted washing, re-positioning and toileting.
The Hospice at Home service is available seven days a week, 8am-8pm.
Other community support for day patients include services such as symptom assessment, medication review and management, and social and emotional support. We also have a befriending service that offers social support, companionship and carer respite.

The Sue Ryder community nurses were an unbelievable team providing easily accessible, honest and accurate information and support to Rod, Mum and myself. As a trained nurse of ten years working in intensive care I have often dealt with these situations from the 'other side'. Despite this I felt very much out of my depth in the environment of our own home.
