Lying just north of the Black Mountains in Hay-on-Wye, Cartref Residential Home is purpose built to meet the needs of its elderly residents. This home is a Bupa partnership home run on behalf of the local authority.
The home provides professional 24-hour care and support for those requiring residential, convalescence, palliative and respite care, as well as care for those with dementia or Parkinson’s disease. Our dedicated and highly trained carers ensure that each resident has the personal support they require. A number of other services can also be arranged for residents such as chiropody and physiotherapy.
At Cartref, resident input shapes our menus. The available choices constantly evolve to meet residents tastes, preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef creates a wide range of balanced, nutritious dishes, prepared daily using fresh ingredients. All our menus are nutritionally balanced.
We aim to fully understand new residents' nutritional needs, tastes, special diets and preferences shortly after their arrival, and we check regularly that such needs are being met. We also continually look for feedback so we can continue to improve our food service.
As well as our everyday menus, we make sure that on their birthdays each resident receives a birthday meal of their choice and a personalised birthday cake.
At Cartref, our dedicated activity co-ordinator ensures there’s always something enjoyable for residents to take part in. As well as many daily activities, there is a different special event each month. These are designed to allow residents of all abilities and levels of mobility to join in. All have different themes depending on the month and the season such as Halloween, Mothers Day or Wimbledon.
We organise regular trips to local places of interest, including the seaside, garden centres and the Brecon Mountain Railway. The home is within walking distance of amenities such as a shop, post office, chemist, library, GP and a bank. In May and June every year the Hay-on-Wye literary festival takes place locally.
Residents can enjoy some on-site pampering at the home’s hairdressing salon. Regular visits to the home include a variety of local entertainers.
