At Trinity Homecare, we are committed to supporting individuals with a range of needs and conditions. Offering both visiting and live-in care in locations around the UK, we offer heartfelt care at home for those who need it most. Palliative care is just one type of care that we are able to provide alongside other social care professionals such as nurses, your GP and physiotherapists, dependent on your individual needs.
What is palliative care?
Palliative care is one of the many care services that we offer and is designed to support those who have a long-term illness that cannot be cured. Palliative care aims to make you as comfortable as possible, through managing pain and symptoms. More importantly, palliative care offers emotional support and companionship for both you and your loved ones.
What can I expect from palliative care?
At Trinity Homecare, we are an award-winning care provider, providing palliative care for over 25 years. Regulated and rated as outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), we are able to offer heartfelt care in the comfort of your own home.
- managing physical symptoms such as pain
- support with medication
- emotional and psychological support
- personal care and help with things like washing, dressing or eating
- food preparation and assistance with eating and drinking
What is the difference between palliative care and end of life care?
Palliative care is a type of care that supports anyone living with a terminal illness or complex condition and is available from the first diagnosis through to end-of-life.
End-of-life care is a type of palliative care that is designed to provide comfortable, dignified & respectful support as a person reaches the end of their life.
Palliative care is not just for the end of life – you may begin palliative care earlier in your illness, while you are still receiving other therapies to treat your condition.
Receiving palliative care in a home environment offers a sense of security that allows you or your loved ones to be surrounded by comfort and familiarities with no upheaval and no disruption.
How much does palliative care cost?
Live-in care usually offers the most appropriate level of support for palliative or end-of-life care, but different packages such as visiting care may also be suitable.
Our live-in care service is regulated by the CQC and rated as outstanding. With this service, you will have a carefully matched care worker to live with you in your home. In addition, you will receive 24-hour support from our office team and management staff, as well as access to our online TrinityConnect portal – an online app that records all care notes. Prices for live-in palliative care starts from £1232 per week*.
Supporting the NHS with live-in palliative care
We are proud to support the NHS with hospital discharges. We can support discharge initiatives on a large scale. We have a number of live-in carers who are fully trained, qualified, with enhanced DBS certificates who are ready to support individuals seeking palliative care with immediate effect. Relieving the burden of the NHS, we are able to arrange care in as little as two days.
Recruitment process for carers
All members of our care teams begin their journey with Trinity with a rigorous recruitment process, throughout which they are assessed from their first telephone interview, through to completion of their compulsory training.
You will be pleased to know that in 2019, Trinity Homecare won the “Innovation and good practice in recruitment and retention” award at the Surrey Care Awards.
