At Headlands we offer care for people who need residential support. Our team is dedicated to the comfort and contentment of the people we care for; always there to lend a helping hand, we love coming to work at Headlands and are proud to be a part of the loving, cosy, family atmosphere. Our lovely residents are a vibrant and lively group; everyone likes to have fun!
When residents join us at Headlands, the first thing that 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 team that is proud of the work that they do. Residents’ families are always welcome to visit.
Headlands is perfectly situated in the beautiful Carbis Bay area near St Ives; it benefits from wonderful panoramic sea views and has two lovely gardens, one a lovely, large, open space and the other a pretty but secure garden off one of the wings. There are also some nice, cosy social spaces inside for relaxing and getting involved in events and activities. Headlands has an energetic, family-friendly feel to it.
Our home is cosy and friendly, with a team who are passionate about the care they give. Headlands 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 Headlands are proud to share that. Our aim at Headlands is to provide the very best care possible in a loving and dignified environment, supporting our residents’ individual needs.
Individuality and independence are important to us; everyone living with us has the freedom to do what they want to do, when they want to do it. Our residents bake, play games, take part in activities and love the ‘Drummer Man’ when he visits! We also love to visit the beach, shops and nearby cafes, as well as listen to the members of the local church when they visit each week to conduct religious services. We have lots of fun things to do!
Every week, our Activities Co-ordinators will prepare a list of organised activities. If you would like to find out more or get involved, please contact a member of our team at Headlands.
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 Headlands please contact us. We can provide you with the information you need or arrange for you to meet the Home Manager in person.
