What is palliative care?

Palliative care is a type of care which supports anyone living with a terminal illness or complex condition.

Medical professionals will support your physical condition with medication and any therapies or procedures, but the support of a home care assistant will ensure that you or your loved one receives heartfelt and compassionate care to support your overall wellbeing. Care Assistants will offer emotional support as well as practical care such as assistance with personal care and medication.

Although palliative care typically supports people living with advanced or progressive conditions, this isn’t always the case. Palliative care can be long-term or short-term and there are different care options available which accommodate for all needs and wishes.

My grandad passed away last Wednesday morning, 2nd May 2018 after receiving care from Trinity for the past year. We cannot express our thanks enough for the constant care and support we have received during this time. We would have been lost without them. They have constantly gone above and beyond what is expected and we cannot thank them enough. The have been so loving and caring and my grandads last year was made so much better thanks to Trinity.

Our Live-in care services will provide a specially trained care assistant to support you or your loved one full-time. Living with a care assistant means you’ll receive one-to-one bespoke support to help you live an enriched quality of life in your own home.

Visiting home care is available from once a week to multiple visits each day. Sometimes known as domiciliary care, daily home care or hourly care, visiting care plans are flexible to increase or decrease the frequency of visits to best suit your lifestyle. Transitioning from daily home care to live-in care is a popular and straightforward option if care needs become more advanced, and our specialist Trinity team will be by your side every step of the way.

I cannot even express in words how much Trinity have meant to us. The palliative care we have received has been outstanding. It has been a really tough week… if it wasn’t for Trinity things would have been even more stressful. I just don’t know how we would have got through it. Trinity really do have an incredible team. They deserve all the praise in the world. You hear so many awful stories and we are just so grateful for everything they have done. Nicki T
