At Myton our work centres on enhancing life, empowering our patients to achieve their goals and involving them in decisions about their current and future care. By focussing on their wellbeing and seeing them and not the illness we aim to help them reengage with their lives and give them more quality time with their families and loved ones.
We know how precious every moment is when you or someone you care for has an illness that can’t be cured, and that is why we work so hard to ensure those final years, months, weeks or even hours are as good as they can be.
Myton has two inpatient units in Warwick and Coventry. Both have teams of nurses, doctors and other health care professionals who specialise in helping you and your loved ones to get on top of difficult symptoms, deal with any physical pain and reduce emotional distress.
Many people want to have choice over where they are cared for in the last weeks and days of life. Often people wish to stay in familiar surroundings and we have a team of experienced nurses and care staff providing care for people in their own homes. This service is available in Rugby, Warwick and Leamington.
Please note; Our therapeutic days have now closed - Our ‘Drop in’ sessions will be reinstated once government restrictions allow.
The Myton Hospice’s Patient & Carer Wellbeing Service works with patients, families and carers to support you to improve your wellbeing and quality of life. Our service is available to any adult aged 18+ living with or caring for someone with a life limiting disease who needs specialist support, information, guidance, or help planning for the future, or who just needs a coffee and a chat. We aim to be alongside you for as long as possible, supporting you and your families/carers as your needs change.
Our Lymphoedema Service is based at Warwick Myton Hospice and serves both Myton and community patients of Coventry, Rugby and South Warwickshire.
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...
The programme is designed to support people aged 18 and over who have a life limiting condition, for whom breathlessness is a core symptom, but who may also suffer from fatigue and / or anxiety.
The FAB programme aims to improve your confidence in managing your fatigue and breathlessness, enabling you to reduce your anxiety and regain some sense of control.
The Myton Hospice’s Patient, Family and Carer Support Service (PFCSS) consists of the Counselling, Complementary Therapy, Spiritual and Pastoral Care, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Teams and is delivered across all three hospice sites within our Inpatient Units, outpatients* and, where the need is identified, the persons home.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we have implemented alternative ways to deliver our outpatient services and we will continue to offer these services virtually for the foreseeable future. Where it is identified that you may benefit from a face to face assessment and it is safe to do so, we will invite you into the Hospice.
Complementary therapies are a combination of both modern and ancient techniques and can offer a great deal of support to those that use them. All complementary therapies in some way are working with your body’s own natural healing processes and energy, whether on a physical, emotional or spiritual level.
Physiotherapy in palliative care aims to help improve or maintain your physical ability. It can help you to continue with your normal daily activities and maintain as much independence and quality of life as possible, for as long as possible.
Occupational Therapy is an important element of palliative care. It aims to help you to live as independently as possible, by enabling you to perform the activities of daily living that are important to you.
Spiritual and Pastoral Care
The Spiritual and Pastoral Care Service at Myton is delivered in partnership with University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust. The Chaplaincy team is made up of Chaplains and volunteers from a wide breadth of cultural and faith/no-faith backgrounds.
Members of the team are trained to be careful and compassionate listeners, and offer confidential, non-judgemental support regardless of denomination, culture or ethnicity. The same support is offered both to patients, and to any family members or friends who might find it helpful.
Adult, Children and Young Persons Counselling
Coping with a terminal illness is a huge challenge for patients, friends and family, including children. We provide support for both adults and children, either individually or in groups, to help you cope.
By providing an opportunity to talk to someone who is not directly involved in the situation and by sharing your worries and fears, you can feel less overwhelmed by them. It can also help you feel more in control even though there may be some things you cannot change.
