We have our own dedicated team of social workers who provide support to patients, and their families, staying in our Specialist Inpatient Care unit at Sobell House.

Social Workers

The social workers undertake specialist Social Work assessments on behalf of the Social and Community Services and the Continuing Health Care Service in Oxfordshire. They can assess patients on the wards and complete the relevant paperwork to obtain practical support services, and in some cases funding for these services can be arranged.

Once discharged from the hospice our social workers can provide support to those returning home and who wish to remain at home.  If circumstances exist that the patient cannot return home, as it would be unsafe or impractical, the social workers can assist with placements in care homes where support for a limited time can also be offered.
