Meet our Activities Coordinator, Janet Williams

My name is Janet and I'm the Activities Coordinator here at Plas-Y-Dderwen.

We have everything, from a film club and arts & crafts sessions to minibus trips out and visits from entertainers. We have something for all the family to enjoy to show that Plas-Y-Dderwen is a happy and welcoming environment.

Activities at Plas-Y-Dderwen

At Plas-Y-Dderwen Care Home, our Lifestyle/Activities staff endeavour to provide a wide range of activities that suit all residents' physical and mental needs. There are regular minibus trips to nearby places of interest, including visits to local beaches and shows. We also have a film club, gentlemen's club, arts and crafts club, with musical entertainment once a week.
