The Hospice is not just a place, it is a whole concept in care

For over 40 years Sir Michael Sobell House has been offering care and support to those residents throughout Oxfordshire suffering with life limiting illnesses.

The years since it's opening in 1975 have seen the hospice develop across a number of fronts, including the opening of the Day Centre and provision of home care and a new Triage Service.  Over the years the place of music, art and complementary therapies, chaplaincy work and social care have all been affirmed and established.

In Spring 2003 a new 20-bed hospice was opened on the current site to provide a modern hospice and improve the service to the community of Oxfordshire.  The hospice currently costs over £3.4 million a year to run, and depends greatly on the money raised by the Sobell House Hospice Charity and the generosity and support of local companies and individuals.

At Sobell House the focus is very much on the patient and the family, not the disease.  Patients with life limiting illness often need more care than those whose illness is curable or chronic.  As a result they can feel vulnerable and disadvantaged.


During the course of a typical year the hospice is involved with:

  • over 3,000 home care visits
  • over 3,000 day centre visits
  • over 500 people receiving residential care
  • over 400 families receiving help during bereavement

Those visiting the hospice for the first time often comment that it is not the gloomy and depressing place they had imagined it to be. Instead they find a place that if full of life and even joy.
