"When my cousin's cancer took a sudden spiral downward, I needed help with her care. Trinity at Home not only offered solutions for the day-to-day physical issues of care but provided support and professional assistance in making the connections needed as her condition deteriorated. They met the need for 24/7 care in her home for as long as she was able to remain at home.
They provided everything from laundry service to getting her to and from important medical appointments. Caregivers placed with our family were well-trained and willing to go the extra mile for her comfort. Not only did they manage her overall routine for a given day but they quickly learned her personal preferences for food, television stations, snacks, and other details that made her happy. They even helped with the care of her 25-pound cat!
I am convinced that her last days in her home were the best they could be because of Trinity at Home."

"Thank you to all the Trinity at Home staff who helped me and my mother. I was so overwhelmed, and you made her transition from the apartment to the nursing home much easier on me. The last week in her apartment before the move was almost unbearable for me, and I could not have gotten through it without the help from the wonderful ladies who stayed with Mom. I had no idea that she would only live three weeks after moving to the nursing home. Thank you again!"
