Consultation on Care Services in Neath Port Talbot

NPT Council logo Gwalia is contracted by Neath Port Talbot Council to provide long term residential care services, intermediate care services and short break services, sometimes known as respite in the county.

A consultation began in June to gather the opinions of interested parties on proposed changes to the location and configuration of beds for these forms of care. The Council will be collecting feedback until 13th August 2015.

 

The proposed changes include:

  • Short break services - Relocating the short break services from Caewern Respite to Dan y Bryn and reducing the number of short break beds.
  • Intermediate care services - Transferring intermediate services from Llys Y Seren and the existing Caewern to Plas Bryn Rhosyn.
  • Long term residential care services - Increasing the capacity for long term care beds in Llys Y Seren.

 

The proposal aims to realign services to make them more responsive and flexible to meet the current and expected needs of older people in Neath Port Talbot. As part of the process 3 community events have been arranged, where you can discuss the consultation with members of staff.
