Specialist services and facilities

Ty Newydd specialises in working with people who are often found to display a level of behavioural and/or complex mental health need that sometimes precludes them from being able to live in non-specialised mainstream social or nursing services.

We aim to deliver a provision of the highest quality to individuals who suffer with all types of Dementia, Acquired Brain Injuries (through trauma, stroke, or other neurological events), Learning Disability, Complex Behavioural Needs, Chronic Neurological Conditions such as Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Motor Neurone Disease, plus support for people with serious and enduring Mental Health conditions. We also aim to provide highest quality care needs associated with Palliative Care at the End of Life.

We aim is to maintain and where possible, improve, the overall independence levels for people in our care through rehabilitation (if appropriate), outcome focused goals, stimulation and social integration in order to maximise potential, optimal functioning and to enjoy a high quality of life.

We appreciate that the care and support needs of our service users are unique, individual and can change over time, therefore we provide a flexible and responsive approach to meeting their everchanging needs. This is achieved through identification of training needs for staff, and our managers take the lead with clinical input of our service users at monthly internal Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) evaluations at Ty Newydd, this is to assist and support placements and referrals to external agencies should further assistance and support be required.
