Dementia and Mental Health with Nursing Care
Cae Bryn, Wrexham, was our first dementia care centre 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...
Cae Bryn, Wrexham
At Cae Bryn our expert team of specifically trained Nurses and Care practitioners are very experienced and are chosen for their caring understanding nature, empathy and cheerfulness. A holistic approach to care has a strong emphasis on individuality, treating people with dignity and respect in a safe and caring environment. Our excellent staffing levels assist our clients to have as much independence and personal support as possible.

We often look after residents with high dependency needs, rest assured, we have the facilities, experience, training, understanding and patience to properly and sensitively care for residents. Pastimes and activities are an important part of life at Cae Bryn and we offer many therapies and activities to enrich lives.

Bodlondeb is designed around safe central gardens, in a tranquil setting surrounded by gardens and countryside, each 8 bed unit is individually
staffed enabling us to focus on a wide range of dementia and mental health needs (including functional, organic and affective disorders).
We recognise different specialist needs, gender and age. And with lounges in each for relaxation, stimulation and communal living there is a family feel to each unit.
It is a therapeutic community, with a wide range of enrichment therapies and activities to enrich lives and support people to have as much independence as possible, and achieve their goals.
