Take a look at our New Specialist Residential Service – Tegfan!

We are delighted to share with you the first look at Tegfan, our brand new Specialist Residential Support Service in Ammanford, which is set to officially open at the end of this month. We have had the pleasure of once again working with Thomas Homes West Ltd, who have exceptional experience in designing specially adapted properties.

Once a 1970’s local authority care home, this 15,000 foot site has undergone a complete transformation, from a derelict building into a state of the art residential service. Tegfan has been designed to meet the needs of those who can present with the most complex challenges, including individuals with needs relating to Learning Disabilities, Autism and Mental Health. This former elderly care home has been painstakingly converted into a purpose built, modern, spacious environment. The accommodation and support offered at Tegfan is bespoke and adaptable to the complex and changing needs of the individuals requiring support.

In likeness to our award winning Ynystawe Lodge and Ty Hiraeth services, Tegfan incorporates our flat-let model of support, offering the use of positive interventions within individually designed environments. This bespoke model has a robust infrastructure of technology, which incorporates the usage of assistive technology throughout the service, utilising sensory lighting, audio systems, and interior styling, helping to create a soothing and calming ambience.

Tegfan will provide the people we support with a nurturing environment that promotes independence, whilst providing personalised support based on their individual care needs. We look forward to welcoming and working with new colleagues, commissioners, health, social care teams, and new supported people and their families.

The team and I look forward to working with M&D Care over the coming year to deliver another amazing event in 2022!” 

The race route will, such as last year, take runners along the Millennium Costal path, where participants will be able to appreciate the magnificent views the course offers.
