About

Tŷ Gwyn Care Home is a single-storey care home for over 55s in Fairwater, Cwmbran. It has 35 bedrooms and enjoys beautiful mountain and countryside views. 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 to all of our residents, including those who require Elderly Mentally Infirm (EMI) care and those with dementia.

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 Tŷ Gwyn:

 

Staff

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 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.

On joining us at Tŷ Gwyn, we assess each new resident 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 residents, so we make sure that they are as happy and healthy as possible.

Living here

We have 35 bedrooms in total, divided into 19 general residential bedrooms and 16 dementia bedrooms in a self-contained unit within the home. The bedrooms are bright, airy, comfortable and generously sized. There are three bathrooms with bath hoist facilities to make washing easier, two shower rooms and one bedroom that has en-suite facilities. We are very happy for residents to bring some personal possessions with them so that they can make their bedrooms their own and feel at home in their new surroundings.

We have an on-site professional kitchen where our trained chefs prepare three home-made meals each day for our residents. There are multiple options at every mealtime, from hot meals to salads and snacks. Our experienced culinary staff can cater for specialist diets and individual needs as required. Residents can invite their family to dine with them for a small charge.

Activities

We encourage and give our residents many chances to make friends, have interesting conversations and enjoy group activities. Every day there is something different for residents to take part in. Regular activities include bingo games, film nights, singalongs, quiz evenings, reminiscing sessions and more.

Tŷ Gwyn has lots of break-out space where residents can take part in hobbies, catch up over cups of tea and spend quality time with their new and old friends and family. We have regular visits from local church people, schoolchildren, entertainers, members of a befriending service and ‘Care Home Ask and Talk’ (CHAaT) volunteers. Interaction is important and we like our residents to know they have people to talk to that enjoy being in their company.
