Woodland is a 38 bed care home for people in need of dementia and residential support. We care for our residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in a supportive, dignified and lively environment. Our staff promote independence and understand different illnesses. They are highly trained and passionate about their roles and the lives of our residents. Our lovely home sits on the outskirts of St Austell and we would love for you to see it. Visitors are welcome any time.
At Woodland we care for people with dementia and residential needs. Our staff take the time to build loving, meaningful and supportive relationships with our residents and their families, encouraging their independence and individuality. As well as full-time care, we also offer day care from Monday to Friday. There is a real sense of fun in our home and our great team and residents add to the lovely family atmosphere. Visitors are always welcome.
When residents join us at Woodland, 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 team of passionate individuals.
Woodland sits on the outskirts of St Austell, one of the largest towns in Cornwall. Designed all on one level for ease of access, Woodland has a comfortable communal dining room and three light, airy lounges for residents to relax in. There is also a gorgeous sensory garden, which we are very proud of, surrounded by beautiful trees and raised flowerbeds. It is quiet and enclosed, with fitted wooden handrails and benches that enable everyone a chance to enjoy some time in the sun.
Our home is spacious and bright, with a team who love what they do. Woodland 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 Woodland are proud to share that. Our aim at Woodland is to provide the very best care possible in a loving and dignified environment, supporting our residents’ individual needs.
Individuality and fun are important to us; at Woodland we have regular activities and events for our residents to enjoy, as well as a really strong connection with our local community and a fantastic garden space. We get involved in as many local events as possible and we regularly have visitors; we even have people bringing their dogs in, which is a favourite with our residents!
Every week, our Activities Co-ordinators will prepare a list of organised activities. If you are interested in more information or would like to get involved, please get in touch with a member of our team at Woodland.
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 Woodland please contact us. We can provide you with the information you need or arrange for you to meet the Home Manager in person.
