Katharine House Hospice is an independent hospice that supports people and their families facing life-limiting illnesses. It cares 300 people at any one time, either in their own homes, in care homes, at the hospice in Adderbury, or in the Horton General Hospital. The hospice serves a population of over 155,000 people in north Oxfordshire, south Northamptonshire, and south Warwickshire.
Katharine House Hospice believes everyone who is diagnosed with a life-limiting condition should have the opportunity to live as fully as possible with their illness. It supports people with the care they need, when they need it, and where they need it.
