Brocastle Manor Care Home provides a high quality of both dementia nursing and general nursing care. It's located on the outskirts of both the market towns of Bridgend and Cowbridge. The home is surrounded by rolling scenic countryside and is in close proximity to junction 35 of the M4 motorway.
Brocastle Manor opened in 2008 and provides 24-hour nursing and dementia care. The home benefits from both a dedicated activities area, garden room, a number of communal lounges and dining areas. It's complimented by a dedicated and experienced workforce to ensure that residents are cared for to maximise a person’s independence and understand their preferences.
There are 80 bedrooms all of which are en-suite. There are plenty of activities for people who access the services to participate in, plus monthly outings. This warm and welcoming home also prides itself on the quality of its care, promoting an ethos of dignity and respect for individuals. There is a selection of tasty and nutritious meals, created by the home's talented chefs. Any special dietary requirements of residents are catered for.
