Helen & Douglas House provides specialist hospice care for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions (0-18 years). The charity also provides support to the wider family through a person's illness and in bereavement.
Helen & Douglas House works in close partnership with other health and care professionals (in hospital and community settings) to provide age-appropriate palliative care that is tailored to individual needs. This includes medically-supported respite, symptom management, supportive and end-of-life care.
Medically-supported respite at the hospice seeks to enable a quality of life for individuals in line with their capabilities and desires. Highly specialist care is provided for complex and developing conditions, including at end of life.
In-patient care is provided at the hospice located in east Oxford. Patients and families can also be supported in their own home and hospital settings.
