Comments about Llys Enfys

What a wonderful concept Llys Enfys is and the way forward for elderly and disabled giving indepence with a wonderful safety net the facilities are excellent. What I like is the fact they can be independant but not lonely joining in as much or as little as they like so if they want company for meals they can in the wonderful resturant or choose to cater for themselves in their own kitchen. Lyses Enfys really does offer the best of both worlds care and independence. I have found the manager and all the staff at reception very helpful and accomodating. Well done. If only this idea could be rolled out across the country perhaps we could eliminate loneliness and less accidents, the fact that it is purpose built with heating included. Surely the powers that be can see this type of facility would save money in the long run, saving on less hospital admissions, less people put in the mind numbing uncaring care homes. As I said this is wonderful concept and I for one cannot sing it's praises enough, Well done! 18/06/2013victoria (relative of someone who lives/lived here)reply
