Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Surrey and South-West London

We are currently experiencing what is a significant and unprecedented public health situation with COVID-19. It is our duty as one of Surrey’s leading homecare providers to update the community on what you can do to stay safe and vigilant. This is also an opportunity to share what Trinity Homecare are doing to help ourselves and those around us in Surrey and surrounding areas. 

At Trinity Homecare, our number one priority is the safety and well-being of our employees, clients, their families and the wider community. However, we do also understand that for some, regular assistance is necessary; which is why our companionship care service is still running with extra precautions in place. 

We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that we are doing all we can to keep our clients safe, and we are taking our responsibility in this difficult period very serious with extreme precautions put in place.

Our COVID-19 Policy

At Trinity Homecare our policy is to:

  1. Follow the latest government guidance.
  2. Maintain and regularly review our business continuity and COVID-19 plan.
  3. Work together with the United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA), local care associations and our local health and social care partners to ensure our processes remain as safe as possible.
  4. Be transparent and communicate regularly with our clients, employees and wider stakeholders.

Our Business Continuity & COVID-19 plans

Our business continuity plans include details of the steps we will take if our capacity to deliver care is reduced. We will prioritise visits to ensure all critical care visits are covered first, using a tried and tested methodology that our staff have experience in following. 

We recognise that Live-in Care services can significantly reduce the number of interactions between employees, members of the public and our clients. For this reason, we are working to increase our live-in care capacity in Surrey to keep our staff and clients safe whilst providing the care that is desperately relied upon. Please contact your local care manager if you would like to discover more about this service.

We need our voice to be heard

We will continue to maintain a strong media presence to ensure that our messages are heard by the government and the public. We will pay particular focus to:

  • Highlighting the value of the care workforce and the importance of high-quality care for those who rely on us
  • Emphasising the need for greater public health guidance and availability of PPE
  • Ensuring that urgent measures are put in place to ensure the financial sustainability for health care providers and care workers
