The aim at Maes-y-Dderwen care home is to meet the individual needs of every resident. To achieve this we use a person centred approach to care where the focus is on the strengths of the service users rather than pathology. Within the home there is a strong emphasis on the therapeutic relationship between service user and care staff. We recognise that the service users, despite the fact that they are suffering from a mental illness, have the capacity to learn, grow, change and enjoy their lives. All of them are supported to integrate fully with the local community and to take advantage of its social, educational and recreational opportunities. It is the challenge for those working at the unit to maximise those opportunities. Maes-y-dderwen is a dynamic and exciting place for both the service users to live in and for our staff to work in. The service we offer is diverse and specialised. All our practice is evidence based and reflects the key principles of the National Service Frameworks for mental illness.

Moving into residential or nursing care can be a difficult decision but is often necessary for older people who can no longer manage on their own or with the help of relatives, friends or other carers. But in Shaw care homes our friendly professional staff are trained to make the transition hassle free and ensure that independence and the key components of daily living are maintained as much as possible. We aim to provide you with choices - over your personal care, what and when you eat, whether you want some peace and quiet or to join in a range of social activities. All this is provided in homely and comfortable surroundings - and with your own private bedroom. There are two types of care home, those which provide personal care only and those which also provide nursing care. All homes provide meals, laundry service and personal care such as help with washing, dressing, general mobility and day-to-day tasks. Nursing homes provide all of these services but additionally they employ registered, trained nurses who are able to provide health-related care. Government assistance with the cost of this nursing care is available to everyone and is not means-tested.
