97 per cent prefer to stay in their home
A One Poll survey* in July 2014 found that that 97 per cent of adults would prefer to stay in their home rather than move into residential care.
At Trinity Homecare, we have invested in pioneering technology and our new digital system called TrinityConnect will enable us to provide the highest standards of service to all of our clients – a service that is personal, trusted and caring. Here, you can find out more about our latest initiative, which will help our transition to paperless records in 2018. There will be many benefits for our clients, their next of kin and our care staff.
We also encourage you to read on and visit the Trinity Homecare YouTube channel to see some practical videos of how our new technology works. If you have any questions, please contact your care manager in the first instance.
“I live overseas, thousands of miles away from my elderly mum. As she has Alzheimer’s, I understand that whenever I ring her for a chat she may be unable to express how she is doing. I now have access to TrinityCarers’ notes, it has helped me to feel so much more connected. I appreciate their honesty, they make a note of her more confused days. They also record specific problems like her arthritis pain, lost spectacles, washing problems etc. Most of all I feel as if my mum is getting daily contact with the Trinity girls, I do so appreciate that. The notes are a wonderful method of somehow having a view across the miles of how my mum seems.” TrinityConnect Next of Kin User
TrinityConnect is available for our managed services (Daily home care and Trinity-managed live-in care) our digital system which will act in the same way as the paper records previously contained in the ‘Personal Care Plan’ folder. Your personal care plan, emergency contact information, important documents, care notes, medication records and medical information will be stored digitally, and your TrinityCarers will update it via an app on their tablet or mobile phone. As TrinityCarers record information using the app, your care management team will view these updates as a live feed and they will be able to monitor events in real time.
You are able to access your records via the app, which your care management team will be able to arrange for you. At Trinity Homecare, we are passionate about fulfilling our commitments to transparency and ensuring that both you and your loved ones feel confident and reassured. We have developed next of kin access as part of our TrinityConnect service which will enable both you and your loved one to remotely access:
Please note: access for anyone other than yourself and your Trinity Homecare team will only be given upon your request and after we have received your consent.
At Trinity Homecare, we’re committed to supporting everyone through life’s journeys. Your wellbeing and peace of mind are of fundamental importance to us, and by usingTrinityConnect, we are able to provide both you and your loved ones with transparency and consistency.
TrinityConnect will enable us to improve communication between your TrinityCarers and your care management team by sharing information as a live feed. Having this live screen in the office will enable your Care Manager to monitor visits in real time and respond faster to any issues, missed visits, or alerts raised by your TrinityCarers.
Your safety is our absolute priority and switching to this paperless system is another way that we are helping to increase security over your information, and adding another measure to comply with the Data Protection Act.
TrinityConnect will also allow our TrinityCarers to record notes more efficiently rather than writing them out by hand, which will enable them to spend more quality time with you.
We’re also always looking for more ways to reduce our impact on the environment and switching to the TrinityConnect software will also help us to reduce the amount of paper we use.
Your Personal Care Plan, medication records, day-to-day care records, medical information and emergency contacts.
