Service description:
Katharine House Hospice is an independent hospice supporting people and their families facing life-limiting illnesses. They care for almost 300 people at any one time in their own homes, in care homes, at our hospice or in the hospital, and we’re available to a population of over 155,000 people in North Oxfordshire, South Northamptonshire and South Warwickshire.

Katharine House Hospice believe everyone who is diagnosed with a life-limiting condition should be given the opportunity to live as fully as possible with their illness. They support people with the care they need, when they need it, and where they need it.

Katharine House Hospice is a registered charity and all of their services are free of charge to patients and their families.

The aim of hospice care (specialist palliative care) is to improve the lives of people with life-threatening illness of any diagnosis, whose disease is not responsive to curative treatment. Hospices provide care for people from the point at which their illness is diagnosed as advanced, to the end of their life, however long that may be. Hospice care emphasises quality of life and therefore places a high value on dignity, respect, and the wishes of the person who is ill.

Hospice care provides for the patient’s medical, emotional, social, practical, psychological and spiritual needs. Care also extends to the family and all who are close to the patient. This care is delivered into the bereavement period.

The specialist palliative care services offered include: in patient, day hospice, community care at home, home night nursing, out-patients, lymphoedema treatment and bereavement support.
