At Blackwood we support people with dementia and residential needs. Our team like to make life enjoyable and comfortable for our residents, tailoring their care and activities to their individual needs. We want those living and working at Blackwood to feel at home, safe and loved, and we are very proud to have a team that works together to make this possible.
When residents join us at Blackwood, the first thing we do is develop a comprehensive care plan with them, setting out the care we aim to provide and how we will achieve this. We assess this plan on a continual basis, working with the resident to ensure that their needs are met. Care is available for our residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from a passionate team of individuals.
Blackwood is located in the old mining town of Camborne, with easy access to the main transport links and a variety of shops and services, including banks, a Post Office, restaurants, hotels, cafes and a supermarket. Our rooms are bright and colourful, with lovely views over our beautiful garden, and we have a variety of nice living areas for residents to enjoy. There are spaces for activities as well as quiet areas for residents to relax in.
We have the Woodlands Café situated on the first floor, which also facilitates a games room and can be turned into a small public area for residents to use when being visited by relatives. At Blackwood we also boast a large garden area, which is secure for all and provides some lovely outdoor space so our residents can enjoy those beautiful Cornish days.
Our home is lively and busy, with a passionate team of carers. Blackwood is one of several care homes owned and operated by Cornwall Care, a not-for-profit charity and the largest provider of care homes in the county. Cornwall Care has a reputation for genuine and loving care for residents and we at Blackwood are proud to share that. Our aim at Blackwood is to provide the very best care possible in a vibrant and uplifting environment, supporting our residents’ individual needs.
Individuality and activity are important to us; at Blackwood we enjoy lots of different activities and events, from sit fit sessions, arts and crafts to various entertainers and seasonal events. We like to have musicians come and perform, such as choirs and interactive entertainers. We also enjoy regular visits from our local community, and our residents’ friends and families.
Every week, our Activities Co-ordinator will prepare a list of organised trips and activities. If you wish to find out more or get involved, please speak to a member of our team at Blackwood.
At Cornwall Care we ensure that our staff are supported. We know how important it is to understand our residents and their illnesses, particularly dementia and mental health, which can often be misunderstood, so we make sure that all our staff are trained in dementia care and ethics.
We are nationally recommended and awarded for our training and career development. Our aim as a team is to provide loving support for all our residents, promoting awareness, safety and most important of all, individuality.
We appreciate that choosing the right home can be difficult. If you would like to find out more about Blackwood please contact us. We can provide you with the information you need or arrange for you to meet the Home Manager in person.
