Each of our homes are registered with the Care Quality Commission and focusses on looking after the individual, offering a unique and loving environment to live in.
At Cornwall Care we believe that individuality and activity are important.

Everyone needs a break sometimes and with our day care you know your loved one is in safe hands. Caring for someone you love, while incredibly rewarding, can also be both mentally and physically draining, so it’s important to take a well-deserved rest.
Our care homes offer day care options, giving your loved one a change of scenery and somewhere safe, stimulating and comfortable to visit.
With care plans tailored to residents' individual needs, delicious home-cooked meals, and companionship; day care can provide the break that everyone needs to recharge their batteries.
As a carer you can relax knowing that your loved one is being cared for by a kind and experienced team who pride themselves on treating residents like members of their own family.
Many of the people who join us for day care enjoy being given the opportunity to meet new people, rekindle old past times, try new things and sample delicious home-cooked meals, whist retaining their independence.
Our day care packages can be tailored to individual needs, so please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Our Training and Development
We are nationally recommended and awarded for our training and career development and we are committed to helping our staff achieve the qualifications they need to reach their career goals and provide the very best care possible.
We know how important it is to understand our residents and their illnesses, particularly dementia and mental health which can so often be misunderstood, which is why we ensure that not only are our staff fully trained to take on their own role, but we ensure that all staff – carers or not – are trained in dementia care and ethics.
We have recently introduced our Dementia Friends sessions to our induction for new staff, following our drive as an organisation to train as many people to be Dementia Friends and Dementia Champions as possible.
We are committed to creating a dementia friendly community in Cornwall and to having the most up-to-date knowledge on how to achieve this.
We are dedicated to providing equal opportunities at Cornwall Care.
Our staff are as diverse and individual as our residents are. We have nurses and carers from all across the world and enjoy a variety of personalities and characters within our teams. We encourage our employees to treat one another and those we care for with honesty and respect, ensuring they are all given choices of activities and entertainment to suit their individuality, ensuring nobody is left out.
Our teams promote individuality and independence, providing caring support for our residents and clients with dementia, tailoring their care to the individual’s needs and desires and encouraging them to take part in the various activities we have available that aid in the development of memory, communication and cognition techniques.
It is important to us that our residents and clients with dementia can keep as much individuality as possible, which is why we use techniques like life story books to help.
We are committed to helping our clients live well with dementia.
