Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Janina Poulter here at Ty Gwynno Care Home in Pontypridd, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Residential care

This is for those who may need some help with daily activities such as eating, washing, dressing and getting around, or for those who need a more supportive environment if they're more frail.

Nursing care

Someone may need nursing care if they have a certain physical condition or difficulties. This might include those with long-term conditions, those who need rehabilitation, or those with physical disabilities.

Dementia care

People living with dementia have different needs, so either a residential or nursing care home may be best, depending on each individual. Our experienced teams understand the challenges of living with dementia and are trained to look beyond the dementia diagnosis and to see the person, understand them, and help them live their lives as closely as possible to the way they always have.

End of life / palliative care

It's vital that everyone gets the right care and support at this important and sensitive time. Our caring and compassionate teams can give residents and their families all the time, space and help they need during this difficult period.

Specialist care

Ty Gwynno Care Home also offers specialist help for adults and young people with different needs, including:

  • Learning disabilities
  • Mental health concerns

"I chose Ty Gwynno for my Aunt as I felt the atmosphere and professionalism of the staff and manager were second to none. As soon as I entered the home I was made to feel very welcome. I hadn't made an appointment to visit - just turned up and this wasn't frowned upon like it had been at a nearby home.
I was given a tour of the home and was extremely impressed with the warmth and friendliness of all the staff. The care being given to the residents was exemplary - it seemed that nothing was too much trouble. I was even offered a cup of tea and a piece of cake!
The manager was very knowledgeable and showed great understanding of my Aunt's condition and completely put my mind at ease. It is a very difficult decision to make (having to admit that your nearest and dearest need to enter a Care Home) but Sandra made me realise that I was making the correct decision for my aunt and that she would be very well looked after at Ty Gwynno.
I cannot praise this home highly enough and thoroughly recommend it. It really is a "home from home"."
