How we help Common questions Who is Trinity’s inpatient care for? There may be circumstances when spending some time at Trinity as an inpatient might benefit you. You might, for example, have difficult symptoms that we can help get under control enabling you to return home feeling more comfortable. Your illness might be at an advanced stage, you may benefit from rehabilitation to enable you continue to live independently. People can stay at Trinity for as long as it takes to resolve their symptoms. Many people find that a relatively short period of inpatient care makes a real difference to how they are feeling. Trinity is not a permanent alternative to care in your own home or a care home or nursing home. If while you are with us your symptoms have been resolved but it would be difficult for you to go back to your own home, we will help you, your family, friends and carers to look at and find other places where your care can be continued.
