Langholme is a residential care home situated on pleasant grounds, with a view of the harbour, and only a short distance from Falmouth town centre. The West Country meant a great deal to Miss Hilda Bartlett Lang, the first Treasurer of MHA, and it was in her honour that Langholme was named.

Residents and staff enjoy regular visits from Ministers and Preachers who also conduct services on a Sunday, for all who wish to attend.

A relative commented:

"I cannot name any one person, but every time I visit my aunt her room is always clean and tidy and the carers are really kind to her. I'm sure she is happy in this home and I am reassured she is being well cared for here."
