Thames Hospicecare
Profile:

Thames Hospicecare is an independent charity, established in 2005 as a result of a merger between Thames Valley Hospice in Windsor and The Paul Bevan Cancer Foundation in Ascot which serves the local surrounding communities of East Berkshire and South Bucks. Both organisations started in the early 80s in response to the local need for a Hospice. The Windsor Hospice was opened by the Queen in 1987, with Ascot following in 1997.

Although the majority of patients have cancer they are increasingly treating other life-limiting illness such as Motor Neurone, MS, Parkinsons, and renal failure.

Services include specialist emotional/psychological support, which can be arranged at Thames Hospicecare via the counselling and psychology team. They also provide a wide range of therapies, both at the Hospice and in the community, aimed at alleviating symptoms and improving quality of life.

The Complementary Therapy Team provides massages, aromatherapy, reflexology and reiki to people attending Day Support, as an out-patient/in-patient or in the community. Qualified therapists assess each person and offer treatments deemed appropriate and safe for their particular care needs.

Specialisms:

Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Reiki.
