Palliative care is the active, total care of patients whose illness no longer responds to curative treatment and who wish to have the best quality of life for themselves and their families.
If a patient chooses to remain in their own home during a terminal illness we will provide specialist care, focusing on pain control and alleviating the symptoms associated with terminal illness.
The Lawrence Home Nursing Team provides palliative care through its team of professional nurses who are specifically trained in this area of medicine. Our aim is to ease suffering and enhance the quality of life, both for the patient and their family.
David Cameron - LHNT's Patron
"Sometimes I point to West Oxfordshire as a classic place where people are already involved in what I call the 'Big Society' - where many people do so much to help each other in the community. The Lawrence Home Nursing Team is a prime example of such an organisation and as their Patron I know just how important this charity is to our community.
Dr Jonathan Moore
Chairman of LHNT comments
"I have become increasingly aware of the vast number of people that contribute to the LHNT; each one in their own way is vital to our existence and continued success".
