In addition to care from our doctors and nurses, our specialists provide a range of group and individual services designed to keep you active, independent, mobile and well for longer – emotionally, physically, practically and spiritually.

Our team includes counsellors and social workers, benefits advisors, occupational therapists and physiotherapists, complementary and arts therapists who can help address what is troubling you. All of our staff are experienced in supporting people with life-limiting illnesses to manage the challenges that you and your family are facing.

This might include things like the effects of your illness and treatment, difficulties at home and at work, challenges with living independently and getting around, communicating with those close to you or facing and making decisions for the future. 

Inpatient unit

Our inpatient unit has been designed to give you the comfort, flexibility and privacy you need during your time here. Around 40% or our inpatients come for a short stay and then go home as they find that a relatively short period of inpatient care makes a real difference.

Outpatient groups

We have group activities happening everyday in our outpatients department. Whether you want to be creative, active, social or just relax you are sure to find something for you. Many are open to friends, families and carers too.

Emotional and spiritual support                   

It’s natural to experience a range of emotions when you are diagnosed with a life-limiting illness. Coping with the stress and uncertainty of your situation can be difficult and sometimes it is easier talking to a trained professional. Our specialist staff are used to providing emotional support to patients and families or carers, and we also offer counselling if you need it.

Practical support

Dealing with the practicalities of adjusting to a life-limiting illness can be stressful. Our team can work with you to help you to live independently and stay active and mobile for longer. We will work with you through group or one-to-one sessions and can loan you equipment such as wheelchairs if they are required.

If you are worried about money and how your illness might affect your income and finances, we can provide you with information and advice about the benefits and financial assistance that you may be entitled to and help you to apply. 

We can also give you information about Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and other practical matters such as setting up third party access on bank accounts. 

This support is available to all Trinity patients and most is also available to your family, friends and carers, including children.
