At St Martin’s we look after people who need help with nursing and dementia care. We have a highly skilled and passionate team whose aim is to make each day fulfilling and special for our residents. We like to get to know our residents and their friends and family, for we believe it is them that make our home so special. There is a very loving atmosphere at St Martin’s and we are committed to keeping it that way, providing our residents with the very best care possible.
When residents join us at St Martin’s, 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. Families are always welcome to visit.
St Martin’s is situated close to the centre of the rustic old mining town of Camborne, where there is easy access to all the local shops, cafés and facilities. Our rooms are modern, colourful and spacious. We have a lovely conservatory that looks out onto the safe and pretty gardens, a perfect place to sit and look at the flowers, as well as communal areas inside where people can chat and relax. We also have lots of activities; we respect our residents as individuals and we like to make sure there is something for everyone to enjoy.
We also have two resident cats; Tigger, an 18-year-old tortoiseshell and a recent adoption, Jimmy, a 3-year-old ginger tom.
