Respite beds reintroduced at Myton Hospice Warwick

Leamington Editorial 4th Sep, 2023   0

RESPITE beds are available again at Myton Hopsice in Warwick.

The charity previously provided respite prior to the pandemic but has recently reintroduced respite beds while still providing specialist palliative care.

They are available free of charge for anyone in Coventry and Warwickshire aged 18 and over living with a terminal or life limiting illness who wishes to give their unpaid carers or families a break.

Providing an opportunity for a planned stay of one week, with a maximum of two weeks per year, patients need to be registered with a GP in Coventry or Warwickshire and being cared for by family or friends at home.




With newly decorated and furnished rooms, Myton has also welcomed activities coordinator Calley Schmitz,

While primarily focusing on respite patients, Calley’s job consists of discovering the hobbies and interests of patients, in the hope of enhancing their wellbeing during their stay at Myton.


Calley said: “We focus on all aspects of care for each patient, it’s not just the clinical and medical side of care, with my role considering each individual holistically. My aim is to create the person-centred approach to individualising activities and what is meaningful to them.”
