About Sobell House
Every day, Sobell House cares for around 150 people in their own homes, in its Day Centre, Inpatient Unit, and on the wards of the main hospitals. The focus of care is centered on the patient’s immediate needs.
The help Sobell House provides takes on many forms, including pain management, pastoral care, advice on accessing financial help and help with maintaining independence. The staff accompany patients and their families on what is undoubtedly the most difficult journey that can be taken. As a patient’s condition changes, the staff adapt the care they provide and work with the patient and their family to ensure that the appropriate care package is in place.
Both before and after the death of a patient, Sobell House’s Bereavement Team helps family members to cope with their loss. This has enabled many people across Oxfordshire to adapt and pick up their lives again.
How income from Local Hospice Lottery helps
All of the care that Sobell House delivers to patients and their families across Oxfordshire is completely free of charge. Although Sobell House receives a percentage of their income from the local NHS, they could not continue to provide their services without the ongoing support of the individuals and organisations who contribute through the Sobell House Charity.
Sobell House needs to raise in the region of £1.6 million each year from voluntary sources, to run the Hospice and carry on providing care to the people of Oxfordshire.
Profits from the Local Hospice Lottery help Sobell House to meet its running costs. More importantly, the Lottery helps to provide Sobell House with a regular and dependable stream of income, each and every month.
