What is Nursing Care?

Nursing care is for individuals who require 24hr assistance with medical needs as well as personal living needs. This may include individuals who need intensive rehabilitative care, for example; following a stroke, requiring PEG feeding assistance or with long term health conditions.

Residents have access to qualified on site nursing staff throughout the day and night. We have specialised beds to cater for residents with medical needs and a range of equipment to aid mobility.

Promoting active lives

At Ysguborwen, we are fortunate to have a glorious outdoor environment. We are surrounded by trees and woodland giving our residents the perfect space to relax and have fun.

For those with lots of energy we have several areas with sports equipment, like tai discs for the wheelchair residents to use and a grassed area for boules and skittles. We have chickens running free, a stunning woodland walk for the more ambulant to enjoy, as well as an accessible path for wheelchairs around the water area. For the green fingered, we have a poly tunnel with plants and vegetables while the residents can also enjoy our stunning orchards.

Nursing Care FAQ’s

Ysguborwen is all about what is normal for you. We are entirely flexible. Some residents like to remain in their room for comfort, some like to socialise and participate as much as they are able in the daily activities and some like to go back to bed in the afternoons.

Every resident has a trial period of 4 weeks. We then hold a general review with the resident being the most important person plus social services (where involved), family and staff. We realise this transition is a very difficult step and do our utmost to ensure the settling in period is successful.

A relative shares their thoughts

'My mother arrived at Ysguborwen following a long stay in hospital. Her general physical condition and mental health were were low from illness and isolation from family due to Covid restrictions. After 6 months she has flourished and is the happiest and healthiest I have seen her for years. She has started to enjoy life again after years of loneliness thanks to the fantastic care and entertainment at Ysguborwen. The sparkle is back in her eyes.'

Debbie and her team have spent a great deal of time and effort in developing the home since he started his visits and we have been so impressed with the service that, when the time came for full time care, we had no hesitation in seeking permanent accommodation there for him.'
