A Day In The Life

Wake to a clean, warm environment. Rooms are cleaned daily and a personal laundry service is provided on site. When it comes to mealtimes, the keynote is choice. So breakfast, for example, comes with options for the pickiest of eaters and like all meals, can be taken in the room, the dining room, or out on the patio.

In the course of the day, there are things to do and people to chat to as and when you feel inclined. Choose from drop in classes or pet therapy, book a new hairdo or have a hand and foot massage. ‘Pastimes’ is an informal reminiscence therapy that people particularly engage with. Equally, there’s the space for quiet moments with a choice of books, newspapers and magazines in the lounge, or a glass of sherry and time for sanctity – with visits from our local vicar and non-denominational services held regularly.

Friends and family are welcome anytime for a meal or a cuppa and we’re happy to prepare food for special occasions, like birthdays or anniversaries.

When residents have questions or concerns, staff are available and accessible.

As one family member said in our 2016 User Report “If ever she has a concern, she would speak to Pam or Jill in the office, who she feels are both brilliant.”

It’s the people that matter most. Our residents are a fairly even mix of men and women from all backgrounds and ages. We have two centenarians, a smattering of Celts, an artist with a penchant for red wine and roast beef. Stories abound from rich and varied backgrounds. What better way to spend the day than with the lives of the people at Cornelius House?
