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 3 Extra Care Schemes, Penucheldre in Holyhead, Llys Awelon in Ruthin and Awel y Coleg in Bala. We are also developing another scheme in Porthmadog, Hafod y Gest, which is due to open in spring 2018.


What does an extra care scheme have to offer?

  • A sense of community with various recreational facilities
  • Flexible care and support service for each individual

Independence - Community - Support

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.
