Greenfields Care and Support is holding an open day on Thursday, November 5, at Fringford Village Hall.
If you, or someone you know, has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, the Greenfields team can offer you a place to relax, unwind and obtain support.
Greenfields is committed to helping patients and their families and carers to overcome stress, anxiety, depression and pain through the healing powers of complementary therapy.
It was set up by Becky Fletcher, who co-founded The Hummingbird, a cancer support centre in Bicester.
She then moved on from the cancer support centre to focus her energy on setting up an organisation to support people suffering from any terminal or life-limiting illness or condition and their familie and carers – and the idea for Greenfields was born.
Complementary therapy is not considered to be a cure or a replacement for medical advice or conventional treatment methods. The idea is to work alongside conventional therapy to improve symptom control and quality of life.
Many complementary therapies concentrate on relaxation and stress reduction.
Greenfields operates on a not-for-profit basis and is able to offer most of its services free of charge, due to the support of the local community and businesses.
It offers regular outreach drop-in days from noon to 4.30pm on Tuesdays at Bucknell Village Hall.
From next week, there will also be regular outreach days from 10am to 2.30pm on Thursdays at Fringford Village Hall. New patients, families, carers or any members of the public who want to find out more are invited to pop along.
Therapists and volunteers will welcome you for a chat and answer any questions.
