Helen & Douglas House has the time and expertise to care for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions and support their families. The two hospice houses offer specialist symptom and pain management, medically-supported short breaks and end-of-life care, as well as counselling and practical support for the whole family.
Helen House opened in 1982 as the world’s first children’s hospice. Douglas House opened in 2004 specifically for young adults aged 16-35.
Our aim is to help every young person – aged from birth to 35 – who visits us from Oxfordshire, Berkshire and surrounding counties, live life to the full….even when that life is short.
