decadent

Here is my best explanation:

'declining' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'ten years with national trust' is the subsidiary indication.

'ten years' becomes 'decade' (I've seen this in other clues).

'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'national trust' becomes 'nt'.

'decade'+'nt'='decadent'
