The Rhallt Care Home in Powys

At The Rhallt we provide high quality 24-hour nursing care alongside expert care for people with dementia in our Memory Lane Community. We also provide support for people with MS and Parkinson’s.

Our team of highly-qualified and attentive staff really focuses on the individual needs of the people we support with a personalised care plan in place for each person.

Our dedication can be seen across all of our departments - in our cooking, hospitality and organised activities for our residents.

Our purpose built 82-bedroomed home, which is surrounded by beautiful gardens, is located in a semi rural position on outskirts of Welshpool. We are close to local amenities and within easy reach of Shrewsbury, Oswestry and Newtown, and just a few short miles up the road and you are in the beautiful Welsh countryside.

We think you'll find that we're ideally suited to meet your needs now and in the future to ensure you get the most from your retirement years.

Renowned for our quality of care and friendly, welcoming atmosphere The Rhallt invites you to call in for a coffee and chat at any time.

Types of care

We always aim to deliver bespoke care to those who live at our home. We tailor our services to meet the unique requirements of each person and in a way that celebrates their individuality, whilst also helping residents to maintain as much independence as possible and treating them with dignity at all times.

Sharon Herbert

General Manager

Hi, my name is Sharon and I am the General Manager here at The Rhallt.

I Joined Barchester Healthcare in January 2015 as a Head of Unit, and became a General Manager in January 2016. I have undertaken my Registered General Nurse training and qualified in 1994. The majority of my nursing career has been spent in the community, supporting individuals with complex care needs and management of a diverse team of care workers and nurses. I am very passionate about care delivery and strive to deliver the highest standard of care to all our residents.

My role here at The Rhallt is to ensure that the residents that we support are treated with individuality, dignity and respect whilst ensuring a safe, comfortable and homely environment. To enable me to do this, I also have to ensure a happy, motivated and highly skilled team who share the same passions as myself.
