Situated in the village of Thomastown, South Wales, the home is half an hour’s drive from Cardiff. The village is largely residential but there are plenty of shops and amenities, including a theatre, in the adjacent village of Tonyrefail. There are opportunities for walks in the nearby Tyn-y-Bryn park and surrounding countryside.
Every single bedroom has en-suite facilities. The home is brightly decorated and airy and features sociable lounge and dining areas, an activities room and a garden with a patio.
There are daily activities with the goal of promoting a healthy social life and stimulating entertainment. The activities coordinator also arranges visiting entertainers and groups from the local community to engage with residents.
The home’s kitchen staff prepare weekly food menus, taking into account people’s preferences and dietary needs.
Ty Eirin delivers residential and palliative care to up to 87 older people.
Obviously, COVID-19 has impacted on the way in which activities are delivered. Activities remain a priority within our homes ensuring that both communal and 1:1 activities take place as appropriate and our residents continue to be happy and occupied.
Garden visits are also COVID dependent but we ensure residents and family members maintain contact through the wonders of Facetime and Skype.
We are investing in new technologies to enhance the activity provision within the home, encouraging residents to experience new things including Virtual Reality.

Words cannot express the thanks that I have for the staff in Unit 2 for their continued kindness and professional care that they have given to my mother especially so during this Covid crisis which has been exceptionally challenging for all. The staff are always willing to go the extra mile, for example providing video links via the telephone for me so see my mother, which has meant such a lot to me. We are kept well informed of any problems etc which is reassuring. They are absolutely wonderful, I'd just like to say thank you very much.
