How you wish to spend your time and welcoming visitors

At Penhellis House we have both an activities co-ordinator who encourages service users to pursue their interests and hobbies and a Lifestyle co-ordinator who liaises with residents, friends and family to ensure that we are doing all that we can to ensure the well being of our residents.

The activities are tailored around people; their needs and interests, to ensure that we provide a personalised and individual programme. We hold regular Residents meetings, where people are encouraged to express how they enjoy spending time and we can arranges events or trips around the wishes of our residents. Activities are varied and cover physical, social, spiritual and environmental needs and we encourage friends and family to participate in these as well as life at the home.

We offer Spa therapy treatments to all our residents, who love to benefit from the relaxing holistic massages or reflexology treatments. These can either be enjoyed in our treatment room or in the comfort of their own bedroom.

In addition to our in house activities, we organise for entertainers and performers to visit the home on a frequent basis. Church services are held at the home by the local churches on a regular basis and visits from other religious assemblies are welcomed. We are delighted to receive regular visits from the local Helston child minding groups where the residents and children are able to play together, working on craft projects and there is much enjoyment from the singing and story telling sessions. This is hugely beneficial for both our residents and the children and special friendships are developed between the young and old. We also take part in some of the Brownie events and even have our own Penhellis Brownie sash where our residents take pride in being awarded new Brownie badges!

We celebrate seasonal and community events such as the traditional Helston flora day dance and Bonfire night with fireworks, garden parties and a food festival menu taster afternoons. Peoples birthdays are always celebrated and we are happy to accommodate small parties and gatherings for these occasions.

Family and friends are encouraged to spend time at Penhellis at their leisure and are welcomed to enjoy our range of afternoon cakes and refreshments. Our Garden room is perfect for enjoying the outdoors whatever the weather or perhaps sit and reminisce in our memory lounge. However you decide to spend time at Penhellis staff are here to help you make the most of this quality time.
