Coming to The Myton Hospices as a family member or friend

If you are visiting a friend or loved one, you may be a little unsure about our facilities and the services we provide. With this in mind we have put together the following information which we hope you will find useful.

Car parking is available and is free of charge at all Myton Hospice sites.

At Coventry please ask at reception for a token for the exit barrier before you leave.

Children of all ages are welcome. There is a family room with toys, DVDs and a computer for children to use whilst visiting, and a garden area to play.

There are also baby changing facilities.

You are welcome to visit anytime. However, between the hours of 2pm and 3pm and at night we have a quiet period where we ask visitors to keep the noise to a minimum and of course at night.

We know for many families it is extremely important that you remain the main carers for your loved one. Some families wish to continue to wash, cook and feed patients, which we will always try to facilitate.

Two relative rooms are available in Coventry and two en-suite rooms in Warwick for those whose loved one is receiving end of life care. We will try our best to accommodate family requests within the limits of our facilities’ .

There may also be the option of staying with your loved one in their room but you would need to liaise with our nursing team regarding this.

Yes, we have bistro areas and here you will find vending machines offering a selection of sandwiches, snacks and cold drinks alongside a hot drinks machine.

You will also be able to get a hot drink from one of our lovely volunteers too! You can also purchase a hot meal at lunch or dinner time and a small breakfast selection is also available.

No, Myton is not a nursing home and we cannot take patients long term. If your loved one comes in for respite care or symptom control and decide they don’t feel able to return home, we will help them sort out longer term nursing care or assist them to get extra help and support from home.

Yes, even pets are welcome at Myton. We have had all sorts over the years, even a horse!

However, pets other than guide dogs cannot stay overnight.

We have hosted weddings, a stag do, many birthdays and even a Harry Potter themed party!

Patients have had their pets visit, including a horse! We have also arranged visits home for people to say goodbye to their cattle or gardens.

Whatever you need, just ask and we will try our best to accommodate any reasonable request.
