Plas-y-Garn is an elderly care facility that specialises in providing residential and dementia care for people aged 65 and over.
The home has three self-contained areas accommodating 26 dementia residents, (two of the dementia rooms are available for respite care) and eight residential residents made up of six reablement beds and two general residential respite beds. Three of the units consist of a lounge, dining/kitchen area, bathroom with bath hoists, two toilets and eight single bedrooms, which residents are able to lock if desired.
All residents’ individual accommodation is fitted with a wardrobe, lockable chest of drawers, bed, bedside cabinet and sink unit as standard. Each room has a light fitting located over the bed, a vanity mirror and a ceiling light with dimmer. All bedrooms are fitted with room call systems and each resident can be given a neck pendant if they feel the need to wear one.
The home looks to contribute to local community life in any way it can, to the benefit of those residents who wish to pursue a fully independent lifestyle. In-house events and outings are also popular amongst residents, including the weekly Zumba sessions.
Staff undergo specific dementia training to ensure each person is treated as an individual and their desires are understood and carried out.
