Pentwyn House Nursing Home is a well respected Dual Registered Nursing & Residential Care Home with an excellent reputation for high standards of care. Registered and inspected by the CIW (Care Inspectorate Wales), we provide care for Residents who are frail and also for those with nursing needs, however specialised.
We are experienced in caring for those residents who require palliative and terminal care. We also cater for those in need of respite care or for short term convalescence.
We encourage new residents to retain their own GP where possible otherwise alternative arrangements can be made with a local GP practice.
We liaise with local Health Support Services where appropriate and seek help and advice from the Wound Research Team of UHW, the Palliative Care Team at St Davids, and the Marie Curie Centre, Holme Towers when necessary.
Care is provided for the residents by Three Teams – each team is led by the Team Leader who is a qualified nurse, and consists of a senior and junior care assistant.
The policy of the home is to avoid the use of agency staff, as continuity of care is of paramount importance to us.
All our staff have ongoing training, which is relevant to their induction, experience and future development. The Home’s total staff compliment is approximately 48 at any one time, of whom 36 have duties involving direct care for residents. We aim to meet the CIW target of 50% of care assistants to be educated to NVQ Level 2 in care by late 2007.
