Blaenos House is situated in the heart of rural West Wales just outside the market town of Llandovery in Carmarthenshire with easy access to Brecon, Carmarthen and the surrounding areas. The home is convenient for many local facilities; shops, pubs, a library, a park/bowling green and bus and train routes.
The home is undergoing further refurbishment to improve the accommodation offered in our single bedrooms. Works are well underway to make it more Dementia friendly and to provide greater sensory stimulation for the residents living here. A conservatory has also been added with stunning views of the Brecon Beacons.
We have a total of 38 beds, the home offers a range of assisted bathrooms and toilets, including a shower room.
Outside we have a patio and garden where meals and drinks can be served and the building is accessible by ramps and a lift.
Approximately two thirds of our residents are from the West Wales area where Welsh is the first language. Many of our staff also have Welsh as their first language.
Blaenos House is staffed by both registered psychiatric nurses (RMN) and registered general nurses (RGN). We provide Dementia nursing care for people with dementia and long term mental health issues within the elderly population.
We welcome referrals for private clients.
Our cooks offer a varied menu, with a choice of alternative dishes always available. All our food is prepared on site using fresh local ingredients and, if a specialised diet is required for any reason, our cooks will be pleased to accommodate any individual requirements.
Food and drink are always available.
Activities are provided by Marcin and Cath as well as external entertainers and therapists; including the local college. We work with our residents to help provide structure and leisure within each day.
Some of the activities that take place include day trips, fishing, visual sensory therapy, arts and crafts, nail care, hand massage, interaction, quizzes, reminiscence, watching films, music and gardening.
We also have our own minibus which we use for trips including the Royal Welsh Show and Ffos Las Race Course.
Blaenos House provides a specialist service and is one of just a few homes in this part of Wales providing Nursing Care to those living with Dementia.
Blaenos House has also achieved Investors in People accreditation
