Jo ran "Seagars at Oxford" cooking school, café and kitchenware store for about ten years with her husband Ross, but it closed in 2015 after tourism decreased following the Canterbury earthquakes.

Hospice provides palliative care, a specialist medical service specifically for people who are dying. Palliative care is for people whose illness is no longer curable. The service works to provide quality of life, pain and symptom management, and cultural, emotional, spiritual and social support to enable clients to live every moment in whatever way is important to them as the end of life approaches.
