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 everyone, whatever their abilities and needs are.

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

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

What relatives say about Gwynfa:

Our colleagues

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 team members. They do what’s necessary to meet the care needs of our people, taking into account each individual’s situation and personalising the care to suit them.

So that everyone can access the same services as if they lived independently, our colleagues 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 those living at Gwynfa 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 individuals 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 people can participate in hobbies, catch up over cups of tea and spend quality time with their new and old friends and family. Our colleagues make sure that there are plenty of activities to keep everyone occupied and help them make friends, regardless of their abilities.

We have lots of activities for our people to get involved with, including:

  • Summer gardening club
  • Arts and crafts
  • Theme nights
  • Residents committee

We want those living at Gwynfa 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 to join in with our activities too, if they wish.
