Trefula House was the first home purchased by the group in 1991. Originally an old farm manor house, it sits in 16 acres of its own land – with beautiful views and ample outdoor space. Nestled in the beautiful countryside of St Day village, which is approximately one and a half miles from Redruth, the Home enjoys fine views over Lanner and Redruth and the rear looks out over Scorrier Woods and St Agnes Beacon on the North Coast.

The original house has been skilfully extended over the years to provide accommodation for 44 residents who require specialist nursing and dementia care, which often results in various emotional and behaviour changes. To ensure that we accommodate the varied physical, mental and psychological needs effectively, our home is divided into two distinct areas. The home’s 22 bedded secure dementia unit, which caters for adults with complex dementia and mental health needs and are supported by trained staff.

Our aim is to provide a high standard of care and we do this by employing a high level of staff. Our team of staff strive to provide an environment where each individual’s care and comfort is tailor made to their own unique needs. We understand the complexity of needs associated with dementia; chronic illness and age related disorders and work collaboratively with all agencies, so ensuring a high quality of care and condition management.

We constantly strive to provide an outstanding standard of care that enables each resident to live their remaining time to the full and respect their needs to continue to enjoy the aspects of life that give them pleasure, meaning and value. Each Individual and their needs are unique, so we work closely with family and friends to ensure their life held wishes and beliefs are upheld and respected.

We recognise the importance of meals and provide a varied and nutritional menu. Specialist diets are catered for with the support of our dedicated chef.

Social stimulation is very important to us. We currently employ activity co-ordinators to support our residents with pass times and hobbies. We are very lucky with our external space and encourage outside activities where possible. We have visiting entertainers and staff participate in providing stimulation with residents with craft work, baking, singing and exercise activities.

We are currently working toward Gold Standard Framework award for recognition of high standards of End of Life Care using our knowledge and experience to ensure each resident has a peaceful, dignified and pain-free death, offering sympathy, understanding and support to close family and friends.
