Charity information

Kate's Home Nursing

We provide Hospice at Home care for patients in the last stages of illness. Our team of registered nurses provides specialist palliative care for patients and support for their families.

Founded 1996

  • Mission statement

    When patients have expressed the wish to remain at home where this is possible, their GP or District Nurse can ask us to provide palliative nursing care for them, working with other home nursing services.

    Our patients are generally referred to us through the GP surgeries in Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water, Northleach, Winchcombe and Moreton in Marsh in Gloucestershire and Burford in Oxfordshire.
    Kate’s Home Nursing works as part of a team with GPs, District Nurses and other home nursing services.

    We provide professional, specialist nursing care with particular emphasis on effective pain relief and symptom control.

    There is no set pattern of care. Our nursing ranges according to need from a few hours of respite for a patient’s family to all night nursing.

    All palliative nursing care we provide is free of charge and paid for from our funds as a Registered Charity. We receive some support from official sources, but have to raise most of our funds ourselves and so depend on the generosity of the people who support us through donations, legacies or by attending our fundraising events.
