What is the Living Well Programme?
Living with illness can turn your world upside down and prevent you doing the things that are important to you. The Living Well Programme is an outpatient-based service aimed at enabling you to identify your most significant concerns and priorities, providing a range of support to help manage the changes in your life and to enable you to focus on the things that are meaningful to you.
Many people may not think of the Hospice as a place to provide this type of service. Through the Living Well Programme, Myton have been able to help a number of people who may not previously have accessed Hospice support.
Examples of the types of support and interventions people have found beneficial are experiencing and learning relaxation techniques, managing anxiety and fatigue, building confidence with physical activities, strengthening emotional coping strategies, learning about the care services and how to access them including the Hospice and planning for the future.
The programme is accessed through our Patient, Carer Wellbeing services:
