Moore Blatch is proud to announce that Oakhaven Hospice in the New Forest is one of only two official charities that the firm has selected to support in 2008.
Our association with the charity, which provides specialist palliative care and support to those facing life-limiting illness, goes back to the very beginning and we have been taking part in fundraising events on behalf of Oakhaven for the past seventeen years. Indeed, for the past two years, we have sponsored Oakhaven’s showcase summer event, the Oakhaven Opera, which takes place in the chapel and grounds of Hordle Walhampton School in Lymington.
The Oakhaven team of specialist nurses, doctors, counsellors and physiotherapists ease physical symptoms and offer psychological, spiritual and social support for sufferers and their loved ones in both a home and hospice setting.
Since its foundation in 1992, Oakhaven's free of charge services have grown to provide comprehensive palliative care to 100,000 residents in the New Forest and Waterside area. Their care is tailored to suit the needs of each individual and, with a blend of expertise and compassion, the team offers support for people when they most need it.
Oakhaven supports over 120 patients, their families and carers each week in their In-Patients Unit and Day Hospice as well as out in the local community.
Oakhaven Community Nurses make 2,500 contacts every year, through 'one to one' visits in the patient's home, working with local GPs/hospitals or by telephone.
The Oakhaven Day Hospice is a well used facility, appreciated by patients and their carers, with more than 1,000 attendances by patients annually.
Oakhaven’s Senior Physiotherapist makes 500 consultations and treatments each year in the hospice and community.
Oakhaven’s range of services is set to expand further during 2009 when a major expansion project kicks off. There will be an additional four bedrooms added to the In-Patient Unit and the Day Hospice will also be refurbished and extended with many new facilities added.
