The Myton Hospices is always looking for ways to encourage staff and volunteers to look after themselves mentally, emotionally and physically.

As part of our second annual Health and Wellbeing Week a variety of activities from mindfulness sessions and sports massages to yoga classes and health walks were on offer for staff and volunteers to take part in. Stop Smoking clinics, mental health masterclasses and health checks were also held across all three hospices, as well as pampering in the form of a mobile spa and gel nails.

When was Health and Wellbeing week...

The week was launched on Monday 16th October, which was also national Restart a Heart Day! To mark the day, Mayor of Warwick Stephen Cross visited our Warwick Myton Hospice to officially unveil a new defibrillator which has been generously donated by Evelyn’s Gift and Warwickshire Hearts. The Mayor then joined a ‘Save a Life’ session led by Tim Morris from Warwickshire Hearts where he and Myton colleagues were taught CPR and how to use a defibrillator.

At Myton, we want our staff and volunteers to be able to provide the very best care and support for patients and their families, and promoting health and wellbeing for all is a vital part of this.
