We provide care in Coventry & Warwickshire to people with a terminal illness aged 18+


My lovely mum died last month of Vascular Dementia; she died the day after her 76th birthday. I was my mum's primary carer, and along with my family, we managed to keep her at home, which was her wish and meant we could all be with her at the end. Palliative care was both the hardest thing I've done and the proudest. I could not have done it without my family and the wonderful Myton at Home team; they helped me care for mum with dignity, respect and care, in the last few days of her life, it was truly humbling. Whilst sitting with mum and chatting at her, I promised I would do the garden, but I also promised to run the virtual London Marathon for the wonderful Myton Hospice. So, here we go, they're funded solely through generosity, and they need all the funds they can get to keep delivering care the way it should be. Thanks for your support. JP X.
