“How to be calm about dying” – Radio 4 discussion

On a recent Radio 4 broadcast, how to be calm about dying, David Schneider discusses the process of dying with Palliative Care consultant Kathryn Mannix.

At Myton, we care for people aged 18 years and over, living in Coventry and Warwickshire who have a terminal illness. We believe that everyone across Coventry and Warwickshire has the right to a good, natural death, the way they want it to be and that this should be completed in a respectful and dignified way. We provide expert care and support for patients and their loved ones through and after this difficult time with a range of support services for children and adults.

Kate Lee, Chief Executive Officer of The Myton Hospices, says, “Here at Myton, we know how precious every moment is when you or someone you care for has an illness that can’t be cured. That is why we work to ensure those final months, weeks or even hours are as good as they can be.”

During this process, each person’s experience is different. Here at Myton we are dedicated to valuing and understanding each individual and their physical, psychological, spiritual and social needs.

If you would like to obtain more of an understanding of death or dying, particularly the process of dying, we recommend you listen to this particular Radio 4 broadcast.
