We support our patients and their families in Cardiff, to ensure they receive the additional support they need during what can be a very difficult time.
We strive for the independence and dignity of each person under our care, along with their carers and families. We work with local Social Services departments and voluntary agencies to make referrals for formal packages of care, respite care and holidays. Other referrals can relate to housing issues. Guidance and advice is also given concerning admission to residential or nursing care homes.
