Review of Glais House Nursing Home

A quality nursing home
Following a decline in her health in 2012, my mother needed to be looked after in a nursing home. My brother and I researched and sought advice on nursing homes in the Swansea area. We then visited 12 homes to make an informed decision on where she should be cared for. We were both immediately impressed by the facilities at Glais House and moreover by the warm, family orientated atmosphere generated by the management and staff. As difficult a time as it was to see her go into care, we both felt comfortable and confident in choosing Glais House as her next home. Undoubtedly this choice has been the right one as the level of care provided, and the attention to detail to match her needs has been more than we could have expected. She is happy, stimulated, eats good food and is well looked after by the nursing staff. Communication between the staff and us as a family is open and honest, and we are readily informed about her well being. The facilities have been upgraded to a very good specification in the time she's been there, and the quality of care provision is thoroughly monitored to ensure high standards are maintained. I strongly recommend this home to others.

Review of Glais House Nursing Home

We have recently transferred my grandfather from another nursing home as the standard of care was very poor in the previous home. It was a very difficult decision to make to move him as due to his dementia he is often confused, we were concerned that he may get worse if we moved him. Since moving him he actually appears to be much happier, more alert and has settled in very well. The staff at Glais House are constantly interacting with him and getting him to take part in activities, and the freshly cooked food is going down a treat as this is the first thing he will comment on when asked if he likes it at Glais. The management & nursing team are great, very supportive and always keeping us as a family up to date with any changes and also involving us with his care planning. The care staff are always promoting independence and encouraging him to do tasks himself, at the same time making sure he is well kept. The housekeeping team are fantastic they keep the home clean, tidy and smelling fresh!! As a family we have no doubt that we have made the right decision and would definitely recommend the home to others.

Review of Glais House Nursing Home

Glais House
After visiting a number of different homes we found that Glais house was best suited to us as a family due to its family orientated running. The staff always go above beyond to involve us as a family with all activities going on within the home for example parties at occasions such as Halloween Christmas etc Staff are always willing to help and always keep me informed on the progress of my mothers health.

Review of Glais House Nursing Home

inside out
This is my 4th year of visiting Glais House where my wife is a resident, there as been a complete turnaround, inside and out, it must now rank as one of the premier homes in West Wales and still work in progress. Owners and staff put a lot of effort and time into making Glais House a place where you can leave a loved one knowing they will be well looked after and cared for.

Review of Glais House Nursing Home

Having visited a number of homes prior to making a final decision I was very pleased that we were able to get a placement here for my mum. I honestly believe it is one of the best in the local area. From the moment you arrive at the car park you are made to feel welcome as the gardens are beautifully landscaped and in all my dealings with the management and staff they have been extremely helpful and supportive.

Review of Glais House Nursing Home

having been visiting for the last three years,I have found major changes since the new ownership have been involved, all for the benefit of the residents, matron,nurses,carers and all the staff appear to enjoy their duties, and all are approachable and friendly, and will go to any lengths to help both residents and relatives. Well done to Ken and and all his staff for turning Glais house into one of the best homely homes in Swansea and the surrounding area.
