Extra Care Housing

We believe that everyone deserves a happy retirement, without stress, and time with friends around them to enjoy the pleasures of life. Grŵp Cynefin has four Extra Care Schemes, Penucheldre in Holyhead, Llys Awelon in Ruthin, Awel y Coleg in Bala and Hafod y Gest in Porthmadog. We have also just completed a brand new scheme in Denbigh, Awel y Dyffryn and are currently taking applications.

What does an extra care scheme have to offer?

  • Flexible care and support service for each individual

Independence - Community - Support
Independent Living
Our homes are modern, comfortable and safe. They are also designed so that they would continue to be suitable even if your care needs change in the future. We combine style with practical considerations to ensure that you can live a full life without worrying about day to day obstacles.
