Living here 

Our 83 bedrooms, separated into five communities, are bright, airy, comfortable and generously sized. The homely units are within the safety and security of the modern structure, which aids familiarity and the creation of a personal setting.

The units support orientation with careful consideration of colour, light and furnishing based on current research into caring environments. All bedrooms have a private en-suite complete with a sink, toilet and a walk-in shower or wet room. Residents are encouraged to bring along some personal possessions so that they can really make their rooms their own.

Every unit has its own communal facilities, including spacious movement areas, lounge and dining areas, kitchens and assisted bathing facilities. Throughout Tŷ Penrhos, there are high standards of insulation and a rain water harvesting system to make the building energy efficient and environmentally friendly.

Activities at Tŷ Penrhos

We encourage our residents to make friends, have interesting conversations and enjoy group pursuits. The full activities programme is enjoyed by both residents and their families, featuring one-to-one options and social choices.

Residents can choose to take part in something everyday so that there is little chance of becoming bored. Regular activities include games, shows, sing-alongs, church services, gardening, craft-making, quizzes, shopping trips, beach and countryside excursions and visits to local attractions. There’s also an on-site hairdresser if you fancy a spruce-up.
