Service Overviews

Glyn Rhosyn

Glyn Rhosyn is a residential nursing service for individuals living with a learning disability who are looking to step down from acute services or step up from community based services. This will provide a more robust, durable and sustainable nursing provision for a period of care and rehabilitation.

We work with individuals using active support, person centred planning (PCP) and positive behavioural support (PBS) to achieve positive outcomes, enhance well being, independence and quality of life.

Glyn Rhosyn Villas

Glyn Rhosyn Villas offer community based residential living for individuals with a learning disability.

By working together, we develop pathways for individuals that enable them to achieve positive outcomes. We empower individuals to make decisions and achieve fulfilling and rewarding lives using active support, person centred planning (PCP) and positive behavioural support (PBS).

Philosophy of Care

Philosophically, we believe in understanding the needs of the individual through robust assessment in order to provide person centred support to enable individuals to lead fulfilling lives as part of their local community.

We do this through:

  • Psychologically informed environments that encourage staff to reflect on practice and how to support the individual.
  • Person centred plans to develop positive behaviour support, enabling individuals to maintain and develop skills leading to greater independence.
  • Providing services that represent good value for money by demonstrating measurable, effective outcomes and progression.
  • Ensuring our colleagues have opportunities for tailored training and development to meet individual needs.
  • Ensuring that compliance and audit systems support service delivery and constantly drive improvement and embed quality in everything we do.
  • We work with a wide range of stakeholders to meet the needs of the individuals needs.
