I found the staff really caring and my husband was very contented during his stay. Very much better than a stay in a previous home. It is more like a family environment.

The original building of Amberley House was in the early 1900’s and it has seen life as a family home, offices, and a school and since the 1980’s, with adaptation and extensions, a care home.
Amberley House is conveniently situated across the road from Truro Railway Station and close to bus routes. We have a supermarket close by and the main shopping centre is within walking distance. It is on a quiet residential street. We have a pleasant garden and a veranda to the front of the house where residents can sit on fine summer days.
We endeavour to meet and assess all residents prior to them coming to stay at Amberley. This gives them and their family an opportunity to ask any questions they may have. It also enables us to be sure we have all the correct facilities in place before admission. We encourage residents to bring favourite items, pictures ornament etc to make the residents room as homely as possible.
We have both Registered Nurses and Care Assistants working at Amberley House around the clock, backed up by housekeepers, cooks and other ancillary staff.
We have a very enthusiastic Activities Co-ordinator who organises outings, parties, and games as well as booking entertainments for the home. For those that would prefer a quieter time, she will sit and have a quiet cup of tea and a chat, help with writing a letter, or read from your favourite book. Our hairdresser is here every weekday and as well as doing hair cut and sets, also carries out hand massages and manicures.
We have a variety of bedrooms, mostly singles but we do have some double rooms for those wishing to share.
