A development project has been approved by Welsh Government that will increase support provided for individuals living with additional needs due to living with dementia at Hafan Deg Residential Care Home, Lampeter.
This project will include renovating four bedrooms, improved personal wellbeing and social area and a securely enclosed outdoor sensory garden.
Councillor Alun Williams, Cabinet Member for Through Age and Wellbeing Services said: “The number of those living with dementia in Ceredigion is rising and we want to make sure that we increase our current provision. This new development at Hafan Deg will enhance the mental and physical wellbeing of both residents and staff and support a reduction in behaviours that challenge. The development will also help to reduce the numbers of residents needing to be moved due to their higher needs.”
Funding has been secured through the Welsh Government Integrated Care Fund Capital programme.
Through the tendering process, J&E Woodworks Ltd were awarded the tender and work is due to commence August 2022.
