Stroke is one of the largest causes of disability in the UK, and one third of survivors are dependent on someone to care for them. At Trinity Homecare we have been caring for stroke survivors in their own homes for the past 20 years. Over that time we have seen just how much remaining at home, surrounded by familiarity and memories can give great reassurance and peace of mind. If you or your loved one has had a stroke and are keen to remain at home, one of our team would be happy to listen and understand your needs.

Specialist care for stroke survivors

Because we have been working in the caring industry for so long, we have a real appreciation for the impact a stroke can have upon you and your family. We know that stroke recovery can be slow but steady and having a one to one carer who knows and understands your condition can help support this process. Our carers can also help keep an eye on the bigger picture, looking out for any changes in condition and appreciate that fast action for any recurring strokes, including “mini-strokes” or TIA’s (Transient Ischaemic Attack) is vital.

“Faith is important to our whole family. She cares for our physical, emotional and spiritual well being.”

The Lawyan family, nominating their carer Faith for one of our care awards 

In the UK more than one in five stroke survivors are cared for by family or friends, so if you are already caring for a loved one at home and would welcome some support, our respite care service may be just the help you are looking for. This is where you get to have a well-deserved break, knowing your loved one is in safe hands and with carers who will not only provide the practical support but the emotional too.
