A service for people affected by dementia and their families
offering unique ‘HOME FROM HOME’ daytime support and respite
Ty Hapus offers a small-scale and comfortable ‘Home from Home’ support service in our beautiful premises in Barry for up to 10 people living with dementia per day. Ty Hapus is known as a service for support to people diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia. We, in fact, have always also supported people over the age of 65 too, with no upper age limit. We regard each person as our guest for the day.
Who are we
Ty Hapus is now an independent CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) from 1st January 2021. This means we work completely independently as a charity in the third sector. We have been in existence since 2011, so we are entering our 10th and 1st year of operation simultaneously in 2021.
Whilst our base is in Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan, we are not geographically restricted. We have always worked across Cardiff and the Vale and are at a point where we are able to further expand our support in these areas or reach out further afield. We are very happy to work co-operatively with the statutory and voluntary sector to improve the lives of people affected by dementia and their families.
… is an age appropriate and attractive house, where people living with dementia can take part in various activities, socialise with others, or just relax in a supportive and therapeutic environment. Ty hapus is small and friendly and in English means ‘Happy house.’
