Dementia and Mental Health with Nursing Care

Cae Bryn, now part of Highfield Care Home Wrexham, was our first dementia care centre to open in 1997 providing nursing care and support for those with memory problems such as Alzheimer's Disease and in 2010 we opened Bodlondeb also in Wrexham to focus on a wide range of dementia and mental health needs for those with higher dependency. In 2015 we opened Bryn Seiont Newydd in Caernarfon, meaning we can offer services across the whole of North Wales. We would like to tell you a little about each...
