Thought about a short stay this summer?
Speak to us today about respite care
Located in Maesteg, Bridgend, Bryn Celyn is a popular care home with an outstanding reputation. Providing a high standard of nursing and residential care. We have 56 single rooms, all of them en-suite, and many of our residents have chosen to live with us after recommendations from friends and family.
At Bryn Celyn, we pride ourselves on offering relationship-centred care which encourages and enables residents to continue living an active and independent life and carry on the all-important daily routines they cherish.
Life at Bryn Celyn
We work hard to foster a friendly and supportive sense of community and many residents’ relatives have told us their loved ones see Bryn Celyn as a real home from home. We are well known for our varied and stimulating activity programme, which is tailored to the individual preferences of our residents. As part of the activities on offer, residents can cook, take part in gardening or arts and crafts, with the support of our highly trained care team. On sunny days, residents can enjoy a walk in our gardens or a visit to our resident pet chickens. Every room has a phone and television point and we have two lounges where residents can relax, watch TV or meet up with their family and friends. We also organise regular trips to the local shops and days out to events in Bridgend and the local surroundings.
Moving from a familiar environment to an unfamiliar one can be unsettling. In order to help our residents feel at home more quickly, we ask them to fill in an ‘About Me’ book in conjunction with their family. In this book, they can tell us about their normal daily life: what their likes and dislikes are, what they like to eat, and what they don’t. They can also talk about things they are interested in and how they like to spend time – all of which will help us to tailor activities and events to make their stay with us enjoyable and comfortable.
Why Choose Us?
Our dedicated and experienced care team work collaboratively with residents to ensure their needs and expectations are met. And as well as residential care, we also offer 24 hour nursing care for residents with both simple and more complex requirements. Furthermore, as part of our relationship-centred approach and adherence to the Hallmark Care Homes Charter, we work closely with local multidisciplinary teams of doctors, dieticians and physiotherapists to ensure we put in place a care plan that is right for each resident.
