Bryn Celyn

My sister goes into respite care several times a year, and over the last 15 years has been to quite a few residential nursing homes. Some are good, some are awful. However being given the opportunity to receive respite at Bryn Celyn in Maesteg has been the magical answer for us all. When we take my sister into the home we are all greeted with smiles from everyone we see, and they all make a big fuss of her never failing to call her by name and treating her like a family member. The care she receives is A1, her room is lovely, the main lounge is light, bright and very spacious (people are not sitting in a circle and right up next to each other), clients are encouraged to take part in quizzes etc and the food is excellent. This all makes for peace of mind for me to leave my sister there knowing she will be well looked after in a very well run home, with very friendly and exceptional caring staff.

Our mother is well looked after by excellent caring staff. She suffers from Dementia and she was in very poor condition after being discharged from hospital - her condition has improved immensely since she has in Bryn Cellyn and she is as happy as we can hope for considering her quite severe problems. She likes the food and the staff always have a kind word and a smile for her. The management are also good, caring and compassionate people.

It's good here at Bryn Celyn, but however good everyone is here. it sill is not the same as home. I appreciate everything that is done for me and I need so much help these days. There are plenty of things going on in the home, enough to keep us entertained most days. The carers and nurses are very good to me, so a big thank you to them all.

As a result of loosing he head of the humerus in each of my hips, my future is now confined to bed hoist and chair. Living alone became impossible and so I have been cared for by the "girls" of Bryn Celyn since. My needs have been met in every way with both jollity and dignity, despite their workloads and it has been comforting to my relatives (who have their own commitments to know that my security is provided by my "buzzer" 25/7. Who could want for more.

My mother transferred to Bryn Celyn after several months in hospital care. She has been here a short while and seems to have been transformed! mam is awake, prefers to engage in conversation enjoys the interaction with all the staff who meet her. The staff here go out of their way to make visiting members of the family welcome and this is refreshing. I am so pleased that my mother has access to activities which I never thought possible despite her dementia she is now part of a caring community I am grateful for the support and care she receives.

Very caring, friendly and very helpful staff. There are excellent facilities and their social life is better than mine, a number of excursions visiting local amenities i.e., concerts, films and local shopping centres, plus in the summer occasional trips to the seaside. I have no hesitation in recommending this care home to anyone.
