"My father was one of the first residents in this home, admitted in the week it was opened. He is 89 years of age suffering from dementia. Prior to his admission he was in hospital for over 3 months, where his general health, dementia and demeanor were all suffering as he was becoming institutionalised. Since being admitted to Bryn Ivor all aspects of his life have improved and whilst I accept that his dementia cannot be reversed he is very happy and almost back to the Father of 10/15 years ago, long before the onset of his illness. He now has a new family, consisting of the staff who happily care for his every need and the other residents. My Husband, myself and all members of our family, young and old are always made very welcome by the staff and we now view a visit to see Dad as we did when seeing him at home.
Sadly my Mother who was also due to go to Bryn Ivor Lodge became to ill too be admitted with Dad and passed away last month. I truly believe that had she been able to go to Bryn Ivor she would still be with us today and I suspect for a few months more."
