Respite nursing for Oxfordshire’s sick youngsters.

A charitable support group operating under the umbrella of Oxfordshire Primary Care Trust Charity, this is dedicated to the provision of additional respite care to Oxfordshire’s sick youngsters who are nursed in their own homes. It is often difficult to contemplate that some children are born with life limiting or chronic conditions and others develop them early in their lives. Most can be nursed at home. It is what their families want, for it is often better for the child to be with their loved ones, their own pets, toys and familiar surroundings. This in turn places an enormous burden on their families. The demands on the NHS, often the victim of its own success, means that support for these families is understandably limited. This is where R.O.S.Y comes in.

Jordan Hennessy is delighted to be involved as their incredible work continues.
