This year has created new challenges and ways of working for everyone and for staff on the front line responding to Coronavirus, it has been especially challenging. Myton’s services have never been more important and during the peak of lockdown we knew we had to change the way we worked so those who need us could still be supported by our amazing teams.
So what does it take to keep hospice care and services running when the entire country has come to a standstill?
Between April and July this year, during the peak of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have:
- Supported 149 patients on our Inpatient Unit at a cost of £422,143
- Supported 500 people remotely across a range of services
- Enhanced our Myton at Home service in Rugby, Leamington Spa and Warwick
- Supported 94 patients and their families through Myton at Home at a cost of £187,093
The support of our local community and businesses is vital in enabling us to continue to provide our services, and adapt to the ever-changing environment and guidelines as a result of coronavirus. But due to the impact Coronavirus has had on our fundraising we expect to see a significant drop in voluntary income of somewhere in the region of £2 million this year.
Help us to continue to be here for people when they need us most, now and in the future, this Hospice Care Week by donating here.
