Myton celebrate staff and supporters in Hospice Care Week

MYTON HOSPICE is one of more than 200 hospice care providers throughout the UK taking part in Hospice Care Week, which has been taking place this week (October 5 to 11).

The theme for this year’s event – the fifth since it launched in 2010 – is ‘Connecting Care’.

Myton is using the week as an opportunity to highlight the many different individuals, groups, organisations and businesses the charity connects with on a daily basis through its three hospices in Coventry, Warwick and Rugby, its patient and family support services and Myton at Home.

It is this ‘connection’ with communities throughout Coventry and Warwickshire that Myton’s CEO, Kate Lee, feels is key to the charity’s continued success in providing respite and end of life care for terminally ill patients aged 18 and over. She said: “Hospice Care Week is a great platform to get people talking about end of life care and the right that all patients have to make the most of their lives while terminally ill.

“It’s also an opportunity for us to say thanks to everyone throughout Coventry and Warwickshire who is ‘connected’ to Myton Hospices and plays a vital role in enabling us to work with up to 1,000 patients and their families each year across the region.”

Kate added: “Each day during the week our website – www.mytonhospice.org – will highlight the stories of our incredibly brave patients and families, the work of our inspiring medical staff, support staff and volunteers and, of course, the fundraising efforts of our fantastic supporters throughout Coventry and Warwickshire.

“There’s never an easy time to talk about terminal illness and end of life care, but national Hospice Care Week is a great chance for us to raise awareness and dispel some of the preconceptions surrounding this very emotive subject.”
