About Continuum Care
Continuum Care (Cornwall) strives to empower people to live to their optimal capacity in their own homes. We support people in a positive, non-judgmental way, honouring their lives and respecting their individuality. Where there are challenges, we hold firm that it is the condition, not the person, that presents the challenge. By working supportively alongside our clients and their families, we help create a safe framework for people to live with dignity and purpose.
Continuum Care is listed as one of the preferred providers in Cornwall for both traditional at-home care and supportive lifestyle care.
Continuum Care (Cornwall) prides itself in supporting people to remain in their own homes for as long as is practicable and safe for them to do so. We build our care and support packages through the following framework:
- Listening – enabling clients to tell their stories in their own words
- Understanding – receiving clients and their stories with insight and empathy
- Responding – offering support that is timely, holistic, developmental, non-blaming and tailored to the individual’s needs
- Person-centred – the person is not their condition, and if challenging, these challenges come from the condition and not the person
- Monitoring – ongoing observation and review of each individual’s progress, to ensure our processes and services remain meaningful, appropriate and effective in building beneficial outcomes
Continuum Care currently provides the following care and support services in Cornwall:

On top of the relevant training and experience we look for the interpersonal qualities that reflect our values: the capacity for empathy, respect, understanding each client’s individual needs, valuing what matters to them, honouring their aspirations, and taking pride in their journeys towards greater wellbeing. Our Management Team currently comprises seven people with extensive professional and personal skills.
