Gwynfa is a specialist accommodation setting that provides care for 17 people in the quiet Llanishen area of Cardiff offering 24-hour care and support for people with mental health needs. The home is based within a large three-storey house with sizable communal areas, such as residents' lounge and gardens.
Gwynfa is close to all amenities, within short walking distance to banks, post offices, hair salons and supermarkets. The location has very good connections to Cardiff city centre by Cardiff bus and the national train link. Gwynfa enjoys a good relationship with the local community including most of the shops and banks in the village.
There are a wide variety of activities from outings to themed nights in and colleagues encourage all residents to get involved in the day-to-day activities and so enriching their lives while at Gwynfa. The home's chef prepares a nutritional and delicious daily menu of food for residents to enjoy. We believe in a homely atmosphere and all colleagues strive to give a person-centred approach to the care they provide to each individual who lives here.
