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.

At Headlands we offer care for people who need residential support. Our team is dedicated to the comfort and contentment of the people we care for; always there to lend a helping hand, we love coming to work at Headlands and are proud to be a part of the loving, cosy, family atmosphere. Our lovely residents are a vibrant and lively group; everyone likes to have fun!

When residents join us at Headlands, 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, from a team that is proud of the work that they do. Residents’ families are always welcome to visit.

Deputy Manager

I have worked in care for 28 years in various homes in Leicester and in Hull.  I have worked with clients who have had varying degrees of Dementia over the years. I am very passionate about my role and the people I work with. I moved from Hull to Cornwall in 2017 and started working at Headlands as an HCA 3.  In 2018 I became Deputy Manager. I chose Headlands as the view is beautiful and has a warm homely feeling.

Activities Are So Important

Individuality and independence are important to us; everyone living with us has the freedom to do what they want to do, when they want to do it. Our residents bake, play games, take part in activities and love the ‘Drummer Man’ when he visits! We also love to visit the beach, shops and nearby cafes, as well as listen to the members of the local church when they visit each week to conduct religious services. We have lots of fun things to do!
