Hafan y Waun Nursing Home

Mum's care has been exemplary not only in practical/practice terms but also in terms of the genuine affection for her among the staff, despite sometimes 'interesting' responses on her part. In more than 6 years of being bed bound the staff have managed to maintain her delicate skin in tact and have done everything for her comfort. I am also delighted that the path to the end of Mum's life has been carefully discussed with us, Mum's family and ensured that she has not been distressed by unsuitable interventions - her dignity and comfort have been ensured at all times. The nursing and care staff and chaplain and volunteers have also been extremely supportive of me and the rest of the family. Thank you very much to all.

While my mother was a resident at Hafan y Waun she was treated with much respect and dignity. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Individual needs were well catered for and special occasions celebrated. The staff made every effort to make the center as homely as possible allowing residents to personalise rooms. Upon the difficult time of my mothers passing, which lasted several weeks, all the staff did everything to make this difficult time as stress free as possible for the family at all times. They couldn't have been more supportive.

My mother has been a resident on the nursing unit from September 2012. She is 95 and very unwell. Throughout her time in Hafan y Waun she has been treated with love, care, respect and dignity. She has a bright clean en suite room. She has enjoyed the activities, singing, exercise, painting and visits from groups offering all manners of inside activities and performances. She is known by all the staff, we are known too. My brother and I cannot speak high enough of the wonderful team provided at Hafan.

Hafan y Waun provided excellent care for my mother. The staff were wonderful. They treated her with respect and sensitivity. Placing a loved family member in a care home is not an easy decision. As a family, we soon felt confident that this was the right place for my mum. We were also welcomed at any time and made to feel comfortable when we visited. We are very grateful.

Mum took up residence in Hafan y Waun when she was no longer able to care for herself due to dementia. In the two years she was there she was given excellent care and enjoyed being able keep up her interests in music, cooking and crafts through the full programme of activities taking place at the care home. We were always made to feel welcome when we visited as a family and were able to discuss Mum's care with the staff, whom we found very helpful particularly when we came to making end of life care arrangements. With many of the staff being bilingual in Welsh and English Mum was also comfortable about discussing her needs in her own language. As we live a considerable distance away it was important to feel that we had confidence in the staff, which we did. Hafan y Waun cared for Mum's spiritual welfare as well as the physical with a chaplain and regular Sunday worship, this was very important both to Mum and the family. As a family we have no hesitation in recommending Hafan y Waun for residential dementia care in Aberystwyth.
