There are many common misconceptions regarding end of life care: and people are often surprised by what we can offer and how we can help.
Myton is not just about end of life care
We are about living well for longer with a terminal illness
40% of patients are discharged from Myton after a stay in our inpatient unit.
The average length of stay is 14 days.
Not all patients have cancer
We provide care for people with a wide range of terminal illnesses including Motor Neurone disease, heart failure, Parkinson’s disease and dementia.
We do not just provide care for the elderly
We care for anyone aged 18 years and over with a terminal illness.
Our hospices are relaxed and peaceful
They can also be happy places filled with the sounds of talking and laughter.
Everyone is welcome
Family, friends, the family dog – everyone is welcome at Myton.
All of our services are provided free of charge
Thanks to our supporters for making this possible.
We have to raise over £9,600,000
Each year to provide our services.
