Katharine House Hospice is an independent hospice supporting people and their families facing life-limiting illnesses. The charity cares for around 300 people at any one time in their own homes, in care homes, at the hospice in Adderbury or in the Horton hospital, and is available to 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 be given the opportunity to live as fully as possible with their illness, and supports 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 the services are free of charge to patients and their families. The specialist palliative care services offered include:
- a 10-bed inpatient unit for symptomcontrol and end-of-life care;
- a Living Well Centre, providing a range of activities for patients and families;
- a seven-day per week community nursing service supporting people in their homes;
- outpatient clinics such as lymphoedema and physiotherapy, social worker support, and bereavement support for children, teenagers and adults
