Gwynfa Care Home

About

Gwynfa Care Home is a large, detached, three-storey care home for over 18s in Llanishen, Cardiff. We focus on giving a great quality of life to our residents, whatever their abilities and needs are.

Our team of specially trained staff provide tailored care and support to all of our residents who have experienced poor mental health.

We pride ourselves on providing a happy, friendly and warm environment that lets residents be as independent or involved as their needs and wants allow.

What relatives say about Gwynfa:

Our staff

We strive to provide high quality mental health care in a residential setting. Our round-the-clock care and support package is provided by our highly motivated, fully qualified and friendly staff. They do what’s necessary to meet the care needs of our residents, taking into account each individual’s situation and personalising the care to suit them.

So that our residents can access the same services as if they lived independently, our staff can arrange visits to doctors, nurses, chiropody services, dentists, solicitors, hairdressers, beauticians and other professionals as required. We can also arrange daily newspaper deliveries, so there’s no need for residents to worry about missing the latest news or having to give up the habit of reading the broadsheets over breakfast.

Living here

We have 17 bedrooms in total which are divided across three floors, with a toilet and bathroom on each floor. All of our bedrooms are bright, airy and comfortable, and include a wardrobe, a lockable chest of drawers, a bed, a bedside cabinet, a chair and a sink basin.

We are very happy for residents to bring some personal possessions with them so that they can make their rooms their own. The home has a large lounge area for relaxing in while enjoying TV, radio or films.

We have an on-site professional kitchen where our trained chefs prepare three home-made meals each day for our residents. The menu operates on a four-week programme, with multiple options at every mealtime reflecting on seasonal trends.

Activities

Gwynfa has break-out space where residents can participate in hobbies, catch up over cups of tea and spend quality time with their new and old friends and family. Our activities coordinator make sure that there are plenty of activities to keep our residents occupied and help them make friends, regardless of their abilities.

We want our residents to be able to have visits from friends and family as and when they like, so we don’t have set visiting times. We are very happy for relatives and friends of residents to join in with our activities too, if they wish.
