Review of Swn-y-Mor Care Centre

It is by far the best Care Home in the area that I have seen and indeed on visiting first I said that I wouldn't mind coming there myself if I was ever to need residential care! My mother has been made extremely welcome by the kind and caring staff and is gradually accepting that her mobility is not good enough to return home. The home is in a beautiful position right on Aberavon seafront and it is easy to take my mother in a wheelchair out to the promenade. My mother's only grumble is that there could be a greater variety of food with larger meat portions but I imagine that budgetary constraints are a factor here.

Review of Swn-y-Mor Care Centre

My family and I wish to express our gratitude for the care and kindness shown to our mother during her stay at Swn-Y-Mor. In the light of recent reports in the media citing poor care of some homes, I feel I must express the comfort and reassurance that we all felt that our mother was being looked after with professionalism, compassion, and dignity. The staff whom we all got to know over the three years that mam was living there were without doubt, on a daily basis, giving high quality care with good humour. It was these qualities that our mother would always remark on when we visited her. She felt cared for and safe and stated many, many times that the staff always went out of their way to make her as comfortable as possible and she appreciated this above anything else. We feel Swn-Y-Mor shoudl be a beacon of excellence to other care homes for their focus on individual care for each client and their relatives. We visited our mother at all times of the week and all times of the day and the atmosphere was always happy and vibrant, reflecting the personalities and ethos of the care staff. This includes every member of the team from front of house to behind the scenes as they all had a smile and a word of welcome for us when we visited. When our mother was dying but able to stay at Swn-Y-Mor the assurance that we felt cannot be put into words and we thank each and everyone one of the staff involved in her care. We also thank those who were able to come say farewell to mam at her funeral. We know that mam would have been touched by so many coming. I write this letter with a background of 38 years experience as a Senior Nursing Sister and I would be proud to work alongside the team at Swn-Y-Mor.

Review of Swn-y-Mor Care Centre

It's always really difficult accepting that a parent needs to go into a care home, and even more difficult to find a good one. Swn-y-Mor has been fantastic since my very first visit from quality of care to rooms and friendliness of staff. I recommend it highly.

Review of Swn-y-Mor Care Centre

I would definitely recommend Swn-Y-Mor, although my mum and dad were only residents for a short time they were looked after very well. The staff were caring and supportive towards them and also to us as a family. My dad was residential care and Mum was continuing care. We were kept informed of any changes in their health and were able to help in their care as and when we asked.

Review of Swn-y-Mor Care Centre

Very happy to recommend Swn-Y-Mor because I am sincerely glad that my husband has been able to be cared for there. When I visit my husband it is like going to my second home. The staff treat me with the care and support I had not expected and I appreciate their care and interest in me too. They always put me in the picture about the situation with my husband's care and we enjoy the activities which are put on at the home etc.
