Tŷ Heulog Independent Living

About

Tŷ Heulog is situated in the heart of Talbot Green and provides affordable independent living for people over 50.

Opened in 2016, it has 40 self-contained apartments (16 one-bedroom and 24 two-bedroom) located across three floors.

Extra Care can be a viable alternative to sheltered accommodation or residential care by encouraging independent living and providing a home for life with care and support services that can increase or decrease as a tenant’s needs change. It is suitable for single people or couples, where one or both have need of more supportive accommodation.
