Within our luxury care home in Plymouth, you'll find the superb features that set our care home apart from the standard care home, such as our wellbeing and beauty salon, which offers hairdressing, manicures, pedicures, and other luxurious treatments as part of our Wellbeing and Lifestyle personal programme.

Our home has so many delightful and distinct areas to relax in; whether you prefer to socialise with fellow residents or engross yourself in your favourite novel, you're sure to find the perfect spot.

Ernstell House benefits from an elegant café where residents can sit down and enjoy a cappuccino at any time.

We have a number of light and airy living spaces on every floor—places to relax in comfort or enjoy a conversation with others—the choice is yours.

Specialist Neurological Care Services

A dedicated neurocare suite within Ernstell House provides care and support for adults of all ages who live with a neurological diagnosis.

Providing specialised care with a focus on rehabilitation and independence, Ernstell House Neurocare elegantly combines style and function to create an environment of comfort, possibility, and potential.

The 16-bed neurocare suite has been developed to meet the unique needs of residents with neurological conditions. Team members include registered general nurses, mental health nurses, and specialist carers, with therapeutic provision provided by physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

A neurological diagnosis can cover a wide range of specific conditions with an even wider range of symptoms. Our dedicated neurocare suite at Ernsell House provides specialist care and therapeutic treatments for people affected by neurological disorders, including:

  • Neurodegenerative (progressive) conditions include motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntington's disease, brain tumours, and Parkinson's disease.
  • Sudden-onset conditions, including traumatic brain injury and acquired brain injury,. These injuries can be sustained through trauma, lack of oxygen to the brain, stroke, tumours, viruses, or infections.
  • Early-onset dementias, including Pick's disease, frontotemporal dementia, and Korsakoff's syndrome.
  • Neuro-palliative or end-of-life care for people with a neurological diagnosis.

Dementia care

At Ernstell House, we provide dedicated care and support for people living with dementia.

We focus on the unique needs and life histories of our residents so that they continue to enjoy the quality of life that they are used to. Our team is trained to support all our residents as individuals, responding to their unique needs. Our Wellbeing & Lifestyle Coach creates a stimulating environment with a range of reminiscence activities that promote social interaction and prompt conversation, such as an afternoon watching a classic film. Our luxury environment has been carefully designed with well-thought-out features to support our residents living with dementia to live as independently as possible, with lots of bright living spaces with good natural light and dementia-friendly signage to support wayfinding.

We support the Alzheimer's Society's Dementia Friends campaign to make our local communities more dementia-friendly. Our team holds virtual Dementia Friends information sessions for schools, businesses, and community groups and takes part in fundraising events to support the cause. If you'd like to attend one of our virtual Dementia Friends information sessions, please get in touch.

Person-Centred Care in our Plymouth care home

All of our residents are treated as the individuals they are, and naturally, each individual has different needs. Our approach to care is bespoke and person-centred. We strive to provide each resident with as much or as little support as they need.

Our all-encompassing care approach starts before residents even move into Ernstell House; our leadership team will take great care to find out everything they need to know from our new residents and their families.

From this stage, we can make sure that we completely understand what level of support is required and can make sure that everything is ready upon our new resident's arrival.

At Ernstell House, it is crucial to us that every resident feels at home here. We understand how challenging a transition into a care home can be, so we do everything we can to cultivate a comfortable and relaxing environment.

Our clinical team is always ready if resident's care needs start changing, and residents and their families can rest easy knowing that the team will help them through any short- or long-term challenges.

Better yet, our frontline staff, including our award-winning homemakers and fantastic wellbeing and lifestyle coach, are always speaking to and engaging with residents. This means that they can identify changing care needs as and when they might occur.
