90 Places for Residential Care

SY23 3AY

Tel: 01970 636020

Hafan y Waun opened in 2007 and provides residential and specialist dementia care for 90 people. Key to MHA’s approach is its attention to the individual and the recognition that choice is an important component in good quality living.

There are, for example, a number of lounges throughout the home, giving the residents the option of where they want to be. Kitchenettes are included within communal rooms so that residents can have snacks at any time during the day or night, just as they would at home. Residents are even involved in the process of decorating their own rooms.

Above all, MHA has developed a strong “person-centred” approach which focuses on the person and not the dementia. The activities programme at Hafan y Waun is tailored specifically to each individual. Members of staff develop a programme of activities and care that takes account of each resident’s personality, abilities, interests and preferences. It helps people to feel valued for who they are now as well as for who they were in the past.

In January 2016, MHA announced it was to close the 20-bed nursing unit at Hafan y Waun, converting the home to only providing residential care for its 90 residents. You can read about the reasons behind the decision in this question and answer document for relatives and relatives.

I have enjoyed volunteering around genuinely caring and compassionate people who hold incredibly high standards and values.They taught me that the smallest details in daily life are just as important as the basics of care.

My mother was a resident for three years and towards the end of her life. I acted as a volunteer and was a member of the Amenity Committee. Hafan y Waun was and is the most caring place. My brother and I were always assured our mother was cared for with great dignity and the very best attention. On a very basic level, the home itself is bright, modern and spotlessly clean. The staff throughout are professional, diligent and caring. I cannot thank the staff enough for the three years in which my mother enjoyed the activities provided and loved the garden. In the end, my mother died in a safe secure environment. She was shown great respect and love. I always recommend and commend Hafan y Waun to people in the mid-Wales area.

I have already recommended. Having looked around care homes and talked to many people, the whole experience became very confusing at a stressful time. Our visit and tour around Hafan y Waun was clear and addressed the relevant points regarding the care that could be offered to my father who has dementia, it was decision time and we did. It was a good decision, life-changing for all of us. Our experience is that what was said is what actually took place ... and more. Not only is the place clean and smells nice, my father does as well! which was a concern allayed. The food is excellent and I have tasted it myself. The staff are very friendly and clearly not only know what they are doing but care for their residents under testing circumstances which I have witnessed. Given the circumstances that we found ourselves in, all of the immediate family are happy (if you understand my meaning) that my 92-year-old father is having a high level of care in his very difficult time of life.

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.
