Ty Gwyn in South Wales was refurbished in December 2006, having first been opened as a privately owned nursing home in 1972. MHA looked for ways to enhance and improve the home to its full potential when it acquired it in 2003. It now has facilities including a number of en suite rooms and double bedrooms for couples.

The new furniture, fixtures and fittings completely transformed Ty Gwyn. Each of the three floors has a lounge, dining facilities and even a spa bath, and all bedrooms have electric profiling beds offering the very latest in comfort. "The en suite bedroom has enhanced my well-being and independence," observes another resident. "It's like a hotel."
