Permanent placements are available as well as shorter respite breaks, this would be ideal for someone who may need some TLC or maybe their family is going away on holiday. Shorter breaks also allow an individual to sample life at Kenwyn prior to making what can be quite a daunting and big decision to move into a care home.

Activities are led by the Wellbeing Coordinator and are a key factor at Kenwyn, there is a varied and interesting schedule of activities and events for the residents. Kenwyn understands that mealtimes are important therefore there is a talented chef who offers a nutritional and tasty menu meeting all different taste buds and nutritional requirements
