We want residents and their families to look upon our care homes as their own - from the very first day they move in. So, as a valued family member you are welcome to drop in anytime and to stay as long as you like. Our homes have active relative and resident committees to encourage feedback, to make plans and to share information.
Cornwall Care have both residential and nursing care homes. The type of home that your loved one requires will depend on their general health and care needs. Everyone with dementia is different. For some people with dementia the main problems that they experience will be dementia-related, whereas for other people with dementia their main problems may be caused by a different condition, such as a stroke.
Our residential care homes provide help with personal care such as washing, dressing and eating. In all our residential care homes staff have had specialist training in dementia care. Our nursing homes provide personal care but also have qualified nurses on duty 24 hours a day.
Inside our homes, the facilities and services are tailored to meet the needs of the individuals living there. Wings of homes are designed around themes in terms of colours and pictures on walls. These themes help people to orient themselves but they also give character and prevent homes from feeling institutional. Bedrooms must feel like a personal space and a retreat with the facilities and personal touches to match. Pets are generally made welcome.
We’re here to help in any way we can – whether that’s finding you the right support or helping you choose the best care home environment.

Some people with dementia have other illnesses or disabilities that make it difficult for them to remain at home. Some people may need to move from one care home into another. Good quality care that preserves dignity, treats people with respect and promotes independence can improve the lives of care home residents with dementia. Choosing the right care home is, therefore, very important, but we understand how difficult it can be.
