What is palliative care?
Palliative care is a type of care that supports anyone living with a terminal illness or very 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, household tasks 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 that accommodate for all needs and wishes.
Palliative care at home
Trinity Homecare have worked in palliative end-of-life care for over 20 years and we’re passionate about ensuring you and your loved ones receive respectful, dignified home care by taking a holistic approach to care.
We will liaise with healthcare professionals to ensure that our care is centred on fulfilling all care needs and our TrinityCarers are specially trained to provide the highest standards of care for a variety of medical conditions.
“People treasure the past and being surrounded by memories at home, means you still have a connection to the life you have had – and that’s very important.” Home care assistant – John Mackay
The home environment is typically rich in memories and offers an unparalleled level of comfort and security. Receiving care at home means there’s no upheaval and no disruption for your or your loved ones.
Fast, flexible support
We can usually turn around our palliative home care services within 24 hours. From the moment you pick up the phone to call us, you’ll be supported from our compassionate team who will provide you with a comforting ear to share your needs and concerns with.
After a discussion about how we can help, a qualified team member will follow up with a care needs assessment, after which we will create a bespoke care plan and assemble your dedicated care team.
We appreciate that needs change over time and our care plans are completely flexible. We’ll be by your side every step of the way.
Close relationships with other professionals
We work closely with you and other medical professionals including GPs, district nurses and specialist palliative care nurses to make sure you are as comfortable as possible and to ensure you have the right support network and equipment in place.
Accommodating psychological, social or spiritual needs
Accommodating for psychological, social or spiritual needs is an important aspect of palliative home care. Palliative care assistants at Trinity receive specialist training and have extensive experience which enables them to provide bespoke support to you and your loved ones. Care that is respectful, dignified and entirely tailored to you.

What is the difference between palliative care and end-of-life care?
Palliative home 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 and respectful support as a person reaches the end of their life, and can be offered alongside the nursing care available from your GP. However, 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.
Why choose palliative home care?
You or a dearly loved family member can receive the appropriate care and medical support that you require without having the added stress of upheaving your life to move into a hospice or care home. We support family members in maintaining the quality of life they deserve whilst remaining in a safe and comfortable setting.
Palliative home care offers caring, specialised support based on the personal needs of the individual rather than their prognosis, therefore with private palliative care at home, you can receive specialist support in the areas that you need it most.
