Cartref Annwyl Fan is a specially designed, purpose-built care home in a beautiful rural location on the edge of Betws, Ammanford. We deliver the highest quality residential, nursing and dementia care, earning us an outstanding reputation locally, with most of our residents coming to live with us based on the recommendations of friends and family.
We understand the importance of good food to our residents, so in addition to our warm and friendly environment, we also offer delicious, nutritious meals to our residents from our award-winning chef, who won the ‘Excellence in Catering’ award at the 2015 Wales Care Awards. We operate a relationship-centred care approach, which is designed to promote active and independent living for all our residents according to their needs and preferences. We do this by encouraging each resident, with support from their family to fill in an ‘About Me’ booklet. This booklet is an opportunity for residents to tell us their likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests and anything else that will help us to tailor our care and activities to their individual needs and preferences.
Life at Cartref Annwyl Fan
We want our residents to feel at home here at Cartref Annwyl Fan care home, so we actively encourage and support them to do the things they’ve always enjoyed doing, whether it’s enjoying a stroll in our award-winning garden or making themselves a cup of tea in ‘The Coffee Cup’, our popular café. Because our rooms are all on one level, many of them have direct access to our cosy courtyard gardens and there is plenty of seating for when it’s warm enough to sit outside. All our rooms have television points too, and residents can bring some of their own furniture to make their room feel theirs. We also have a hair salon on site where residents can treat themselves to a regular trim.
We have a dedicated activities and lifestyle team and as part of our activities programme, residents can cook, take part in arts and crats or enjoy some gardening in one of our raised flower beds. We also put on regular trips out to local events and places of interest. And of course, family and friends can visit at any time.
