Residential Care

Cornelius House is a privately owned residential care home, registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and inspected annually to meet standards of quality and safety. We provide 24 hr help with mobility, washing, dressing and personal care. Medical needs are met by local G.P.’s, though residents can stay with their elected G.P.’s. Visiting specialists provide services like chiropody, hairdressing, religious support, dental and optical care. Specific needs, will be discussed in depth on arrival and integrated into the care plan.

For more information download the Standard Residents Contract.

“This small but friendly home in Fishbourne is a beacon of genuine care”

Respite care

People can stay for two weeks upwards without committing to the same terms as a full resident – ideal for those coming out of hospital, recuperating from illness or who would like to try Cornelius House first. One resident has been coming for respite for the last couple of years. He stays for two weeks, to give his wife a break, (he claims).

Call 01243 779372 to discuss the possibilities.

Food, glorious food

Home cooked and delicious, the food at Cornelius House is central to our care. Breakfast can be cereal, toast or the full monty English. Two meal options are offered every lunchtime. Meat comes fresh from our local butcher and residents appreciate the difference (Lancashire hotpot is a favourite). Supper tends to be light and easy and our home made cakes are legendary. Menus are adjusted seasonally to bring variety and colour.

“I enjoy my lunchtime glass of sherry with my friend.”



As a guide, fees at Cornelius House start at £750 per week. We are happy to accept residents funded by social services although these will usually require additional fee to cover the differential. Respite care is offered at the usual room rate plus £25.
