On Monday 17th October, we launched our first Health and Wellbeing Week across all three sites to encourage staff and volunteers to enhance their understanding of health and wellbeing.
Our Health and Wellbeing Week also aims to encourage staff and volunteers to explore different ways of improving their mental, physical and emotional health and wellbeing.
Throughout the week, staff and volunteers were invited to take part in a range of activities from mindfulness sessions and spa treatments from Zen Ten Spa to salsa lessons and health walks. Staff and volunteers also competed in a pedometer challenge to encourage staff and volunteers to take as many steps as possible throughout the week.
Organisations from across Coventry and Warwickshire, including Slimming World, Hilton Group, Simply Health, Fair Trade and the NHS, also hosted information stands across each hospice site throughout the week.
At Myton, we firmly believe that promoting health and wellbeing is good for our staff and volunteers in order for them to provide the very best care and support for our patients and other service users. Going forward, we plan to hold an annual Health and Wellbeing Week as we recognise the benefits of having a healthy workforce for our patients.
