Barchester Kernow House

Care for my mother during her final days could not be faulted. All staff were attentive to all her needs throughout and nothing was too much trouble. Management reacted immediately to any concerns we raised and kept us informed at all times. Either my sister Emma or myself were with her throughout and again our every need was catered for with nothing too much trouble. The care and attention shown by all staff at the end was 1st class and it was comforting to see the regard and care given by all staff members. Members of staff not on duty even made a special trip to say their farewells to our mother. The care and attention given by all staff can only be rated as exemplary and I have no hesitation in recommended this facility for anyone seeking a loving environment for their loved ones.

Kernow House staff not only care for the residents they also provide support to relatives. They have helped me understand and come to terms with my mothers dementia. They have helped me to not feel guilty about not taking care of her needs personally.

I cannot speak highly enough of the care home my son resides in. He suffers from Alzheimer's and has been in Kernow House for five years. The treatment he receives is first class and the staff are caring and considerate. All care homes in the country should be run like Kernow House.
