What relatives say about Plas y Garn:


Our colleagues

We strive to provide high quality residential, dementia and respite care. Our round-the-clock care 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.

On joining us at Plas y Garn, we assess each new person so that we can ensure their current needs are identified and met. Throughout their stay, we monitor them closely so that we can increase the levels of care they receive over time, if necessary. We genuinely care about and value all of our people, so we make sure that they are as happy and healthy as possible.

Living here

We have 32 bedrooms in total which are divided into two self-contained areas. 16 of these bedrooms are for residents with dementia and the other 16 bedrooms are for general residential places.

All of our bedrooms are bright, airy, comfortable and roomy, and include a wardrobe, a lockable chest of drawers, a bed, a bedside cabinet 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.

We have an on-site professional kitchen where our trained chefs prepare three home-made meals each day for everyone. The menu operates on a fortnightly programme, with multiple options at every mealtime. Our experienced culinary colleagues can cater for specialist diets and individual needs as required. Meals are usually eaten in our dining rooms.


We encourage and give those living at Plas y Garn many chances to make friends, have interesting conversations and enjoy group activities.

Every day there is something different for everyone to take part in. Regular activities include quiz nights, sing-alongs, dancing, gardening, theatre, craft-making and much more.

Plas y Garn has lots of break-out space where people can take part in hobbies, catch up over cups of tea and spend quality time with their new and old friends and family. Our activities organiser makes sure that there are plenty of activities to keep everyone occupied and help them make friends, regardless of their abilities.
