Here at Trinity we provide extensive end of life care to patients. We are THE local hospice for Blackpool, the Fylde and Wyre. We can care for up to 20 adult patients in our main hospice, alongside 15 day care patients. Our building also includes Brian House Children’s Hospice.
Our compassionate palliative care enables people to live as actively as possible from the time of their diagnosis until the end of life.
But what is palliative care? Put simply, it focuses not on cure, but on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of a serious illness. The aim is to improve quality of life for both the patient and their family, because the stress of caring for a loved one with a terminal illness can be a heavy burden indeed.
We offer our services completely free of charge for as long as they are needed, whether that is weeks, months or years.
Trinity’s care can be given in many settings: in our purpose-built hospice, in the home during the day or night, or at the hospital. We work alongside many other agencies to ensure joined up care.
The word ‘hospice’ makes some people anxious, but most people who come to Trinity or to Brian House talk about its feeling of calm and its very positive atmosphere. Hospices are not just places of sadness, but often of happiness and hope, and of astonishing kindness.
Trinity has a superb reputation for clinical and medical care and takes pride in sharing its expertise with other local health and social care providers, working in partnership to ensure that good palliative care is available to all.
We offer a rounded set of services, so it’s impossible to describe a typical Trinity patient. Many of our patients do not have cancer; we care for people with serious cardiac or respiratory issues, and those with motor neurone disease. Some of our more elderly patients may have very complex additional medical needs, including mobility problems and dementia.
Patients come from all faiths, all backgrounds, and each has a unique history. We never forget that; we see the person, not their illness.
