Careers

Within walking distance of the pretty historic market town of Llandovery, and on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Blaenos House Nursing Home is one of the only homes in West Wales caring for those living with dementia.

The house is a former convent, and originally the Home of the Order of Carmelite Nuns.  Today, you’ll find nods to the nuns’ traditions and history throughout the extensive gardens. The home has impressive views across the Welsh countryside, and is close to local amenities, railway station and attractions in the surrounding area such as the Norman Llandovery Castle, Llandovery Museum & Visitor Gateway and the spectacular circular walk of Gwenffrwd-Dinas Nature Reserve

Blaenos House Nursing Home cares for a maximum of 38 residents living with dementia and/or requiring nursing care on a short or long-term basis. Most of our team members read and speak Welsh as their first language.

Our home is managed by Jess who has been a nurse for 14 years and Care Home Manager for the last 6 years.

Care

At Blaenos House, we support your loved one with residential dementia care, simple and complex dementia nursing care, and respite stays. As well as specialised memory care, we also provide our residents with comfort and companionship. Most residents are Welsh and many of our staff, from care-givers to housekeepers, speak Welsh fluently.

We understand caring for loved ones living with memory loss can be upsetting. Our trained and qualified team are here to support you too, updating you whenever you need them to with compassion and empathy. You can also rest assured in our 24/7 electronic care system, which records and updates all your loved one’s care 24/7.

Bedrooms & Facilities

Blaenos House Nursing Home has 34 bedrooms over two floors. Almost every room overlooks the garden and the surrounding Welsh scenery, and every one includes 24-hour call button and/or floor sensor mat.

For our dementia and memory care residents, the home-from-home feeling is crucial. We comfortably furnish every room, but we invite your loved one to bring their own belongings. That way, their bedroom feels recognisable, comforting, and personal.

Dining

If your loved one is living with dysphasia, they shouldn’t have to compromise on the quality of their meals. Our in-house chef prepares the same nutritionally-balanced, homemade and delicious meals for all our residents at Blaenos House Nursing Home, no matter preference or need. Foods are pureed yet presented perfectly, and every meal includes fresh ingredients, and local produce where possible including the Royal warrant of appointment, Matthews Butchers.

As well as three main meals, your loved one can enjoy morning and afternoon tea with freshly-baked cakes and biscuits. Proper hydration is essential to wellness, so hot and cold drinks are available for our residents 24/7.
