Wales – Cardiff
Situated in the heart of Cardiff’s leafy suburb, Penylan House has been providing residential, nursing, dementia and convalescence care for more than 50 years. The fully redeveloped modern, purpose-built facility has 75 single, en-suite bedrooms, five well-furnished lounges and two dining rooms that provide places to come together to socialise, participate in group activities, or entertain visitors.
The large landscaped garden has plants and a design chosen by our Elders garden committee, as well as an all-weather AstroTurf area for outdoor activities. The garden is fully accessible and also completely secure, maximising safety, independence, and choice. Penylan House also has a cinema room and hair salon with visiting stylists.
Registered with the Care and Social Services Inspectorate for Wales (CSSIW), Penylan House provides the highest standards of accommodation and person-centred care, with experienced Registered Nurses and Care Assistants providing 24-hour support. The whole building exceeds CSSIW requirements with bigger bedrooms, wider corridors, spacious lounges and a high staff to Elders ratio.
Owned and operated by Linc-Cymru Housing Association Limited, the team at Penylan House are committed to delivering high quality person-centred care, which is underpinned by the Eden Alternative philosophy. The team strive to combat loneliness, helplessness and boredom and provide companionship, wellbeing, dignity and choice. These care principles are at the heart of Linc Care to ensure that Penylan House is an enjoyable and vibrant place to live and the people that live here have a life that is worth living.
