Oakhaven Hospice: making every moment matter
Oakhaven Hospice provides specialist palliative care and support to those facing life-limiting illness and their loved ones in both a home and hospice setting.
Our team of specialist Oakhaven nurses, doctors, counsellors and physiotherapists ease physical symptoms and offer psychological, spiritual and social support.
Our 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 need it most.
Information on the range of services we offer at the hospice, through our wellbeing events and classes along with practical assistance to help you live with your illness can be found within this website.
In 2022 we celebrated official 30th anniversary of Oakhaven Hospice. Three decades of care for the community of the New Forest and Waterside and more recently that of Totton and the surrounding areas. Take a look back at our history.
From small beginnings, the hospice has now blossomed into a well respected and loved part of our community providing support and care for all those with a life-limiting illness.
How can we help?
Oakhaven provides dedicated hospice care with a team of nurses, doctors, counsellors and physiotherapists to ease symptoms and offer psychological, spiritual and social support.
Our purpose-built wellbeing centre offers practical support, social activities and wellbeing classes for anyone whose life has been impacted by health issues or the loss of a loved one.
