Langholme and Abbeyfield homes in Falmouth expand
LANGHOLME Care Home in Falmouth has undergone a £1.5 million revamp to provide specialist dementia care.
And the Abbeyfield Society has added two rooms to its sheltered housing in the town.
At Langholme in Arwenack Avenue, the expansion means it can now offer 20 places for dementia care in addition to 20 for residential care.
While the work was carried out, the home continued to operate. Manager Pat Bagley said: "The project has been two and a half years in the making, but it has been worth every moment of the wait.

"Every area of the home has been revamped and upgraded, all rooms are now en suite and we now have a coffee shop.
"Not only do we have brand new facilities, but for the first time in its history, Langholme will be able to welcome people with dementia, which is great news for local families who are affected by the condition."
The home has been operating since 1969, run by the Methodist Homes Association.
Abbeyfield offers supported sheltered accommodation to anyone over 55 years old.
Lyn Orders from the charity said: "With such high demand in Falmouth we have extended our home."
A garden party was held in the grounds to celebrate the official reopening of the home, which was done by Baroness Dean.
