Dementia and Mental Health with Nursing Care
Cae Bryn was our first dementia care centre providing nursing care and support for those with memory problems such as Alzheimer's Disease and in 2010 we opened Bodlondeb to focus on a wide range of dementia and mental health needs for those with higher dependency. We would like to tell you a little about each …
At Cae Bryn our expert team of specifically trained nurses and care practitioners are very experienced and are chosen for their caring understanding nature, empathy and cheerfulness. A holistic approach to care has a strong emphasis on individuality, treating people with dignity and respect in a safe and caring environment. Our excellent staffing levels assist our clients to have as much independence and personal support as possible. First class accommodation is purpose-built, homely and surrounded by beautiful countryside with well-maintained and safe gardens including a multisensory garden.
We often look after residents with high dependency needs, rest assured, we have the facilities, experience, training, understanding and patience to properly and sensitively care for residents. Pastimes and activities are an important part of life at Cae Bryn and we offer many therapies and activities to enrich lives. Cae Bryn also has the benefit of a very active Family Support Group for families who wish to share their experiences.
Bodlondeb is designed around safe central gardens, in a tranquil setting surrounded by gardens and countryside, each 8 bed unit is individually staffed enabling us to focus on a wide range of dementia and mental health needs (including functional, organic and affective disorders). We recognise different specialist needs, gender and age. And with lounges in each for relaxation, stimulation and communal living there is a family feel to each unit.
It is a therapeutic community, with a wide range of enrichment therapies and activities to enrich lives and support people to have as much independence as possible, and achieve their goals. You will often be greeted by the smell of homemade bread as residents enjoy making bread and soup for lunch! And there is even a gym for residents and staff.
Our friendly and understanding staff are highly trained and qualified in a diverse range of mental health areas. We were delighted when Bodlondeb won an international award for the most outstanding dementia care innovation in the world in 2013. The honour was bestowed at the Globals, an international awards ceremony organised by the influential Over 50s Housing group.
