Types of care
Kernow House is committed to the delivery of person-centred care to every individual who we support. Our home specialises in caring for working age or older adults living with Huntington's or advanced dementia. We understand that every individual we care for is on a journey - one that isn't always easy and which will inevitably lead to change. That's why our environment and staff teams have been tailored to meet those evolving needs. Our Millaton service for individuals with Huntington's disease is equipped to deal with every stage of the condition. It has an enviable reputation as a centre of specialism; we work closely with the HDA and local support groups to ensure that we offer the latest evidence-based care for this specialism. Our complex dementia facility, Memory Lane community and higher dependency dementia nursing unit, ensure that each resident can be cared for in an environment that suits their needs at that time by a team who, through training and experience, understand how to respond to the different situations that arise from people living with dementia.Read more

Hi, my name is Leigh, and I am the Deputy Manager acting as General Manager here at Kernow House. Welcome to our website!
I am a registered mental health nurse. Prior to becoming a nurse, I spent 13 years as a soldier, serving with a commando unit in Iraq, Afghanistan and other overseas operations. I became interested in post-traumatic stress disorder and decided to train as a nurse. During this nurse training, I discovered a particular interest in working with dementia and decided to pursue a career in this.
As Deputy Manager, I put my leadership skills to good use when managing nursing and care staff. I ensure we deliver person-centred care in a therapeutic manner and share my knowledge with other staff, both within the home and with outside professionals.
I am involved in all aspects of the care we provide and I am always approachable.Get in touch Meet my team
