Kernow House Care Home at a glance
Here at Kernow House we pride ourselves on offering person centred care to adults of working age or older who are living with the challenge of complex mental health conditions, many with physical health challenges too.
We specialise in 2 areas; caring for people living with Huntington's disease or advanced dementia who need specialist support to get the most out of life.
Trips out in the mini bus, local shopping, and community events are combined with a comprehensive in-house programme of events, activities and services including hairdressing, aromatherapy and chiropody, to keep life stimulating and interesting.
