You may think of a hospice as a place to do with end of life care, but a hospice is there to help anyone who has a life limiting condition, which Parkinsons is. Myton offers chances to meet up with others in a similar situation, and to chat with volunteers and experienced staff, thus gaining support , care and company. The following is their advert for their drop in sessions.
Our wellbeing ‘drop-in’ sessions take place in our Day Units at Myton and are available on one day per week on each of our sites;
- Coventry – Monday morning and afternoon
- Rugby – Thursday morning and afternoon
- Warwick – Tuesday morning and afternoon
You are welcome to stay all day but please note lunch is not provided.
These sessions are for anyone with or caring for someone with a life limiting illness; no matter where you are in your disease pathway.
We also welcome family members and friends.
We aim to provide a space for you to have a cup of tea and to chat, hear tips and share your experience with other patients and carers. You will also have the opportunity to engage in a variety of activities and group discussions.
Support for Carers
Caring for someone who has a life limiting illness can be extremely rewarding but can at times leave you feeling absolutely exhausted. Taking time out is important for your health and wellbeing. Being healthy is not only important for you, but it also helps the person you are caring for.
Sometimes family and friends may be able to sit with the person you care for, to enable you to have a break for a couple of hours and call in to one of our drop-in sessions. Alternatively, both you and the person you care for are very welcome to attend together.
9.30am – 12.30pm and 1.30pm – 4pm
