Care, comfort, dignity and respect

“The philosophy of Vale House is that of hospice care for terminal mental illness. Because of this philosophy of care, the skill and training of its staff, and the widespread local appreciation of its special role, Vale House is able to accept people who suffer dementia in its severest and most difficult forms, and support them to the end of their lives. The careful thought put into the original conception of the home, the development of its operational policy and training programme, and the approach to care, sustained over the years, that treats each resident as an individual whose life has meaning and value, has made Vale House a source of learning and example throughout the country and further afield.”

Dr Catherine Oppenheimer
Formerly Medical Director for Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire NHS Partnership Trust.
Retired Consultant in the Psychiatry of Old Age
Chairman of Vale House

Ditchley Park, Friday 13 June 2014

We are fortunate to have been given access to Ditchley Park, which is a classic Georgian mansion built in 1722. It is situated just north of Blenheim Palace.

We will be serving Afternoon Tea from 2-5pm and there will be dance displays from Step-by-Step, our Strictly Oxford professionals, live music and ‘chance to dance’, a short tour of the house and an Antiques Road Show for which Bonhams are give their time for our charity. Tickets for tea are £25 a head.

In the evening, there is a black-tie event from 7-10.30 which begins with a champagne reception, followed by supper, live music, a dance display, a dinner-for-two raffle and a silent auction. Tickets for this evening are £75 per person.
