Ty Hapus provides a homely and comfortable environment in which to relax, join in, or just chill. A
diagnosis of dementia doesn’t mean that you can’t take part, do things, laugh and have fun.
We hold themed events in the Ty Hapus Moondance café, enjoy relaxed lunches in our Halo Lounge and dining room, engage in sporting activity in our first floor activity room.
Why not join in with a quiz, do some crafting, pot up some spring plants, play skittles, pool or even basketball! There is no pressure, it really does depend on what you enjoy. If sitting with a magazine, catching up with some TV classic comedies or watching an entertainer is more your thing then that’s fine too!
We aim to support you to do the things you like, maybe even suggesting that you try something you’ve never thought of doing before. Active engagement, social interaction and cognitively stimulating activities are the key elements of support at Ty Hapus Although we have a lovely environment that does not mean that we shouldn’t explore everything that the local community can offer too.
We have been fortunate to make links locally that have meant the following are just a few of the things we have done:
Lunches out at local pubs and restaurants
Vintage tea dances
Tai Chi in the park
Pedal power cycling with adapted bikes for all
Walks at parks and beaches
Trips to museums
Running a stall
Fishing with Glamorgan anglers
Plus lots more…
Therapies and psychological support
We aim to offer therapies and treatments as funding allows. This can be anything from a facial to
chiropody. We have a small private wellbeing room and can help you to book a local mobile hairdresser if you find going to a salon difficult.
With close links to the Health and Social care services teams we are in close contact with professionals who can offer psychological and other support.
We have linked with the Counselling and psychotherapy degree at the University at Newport. As a result we are able to offer FREE counselling for unpaid carers with a third year degree student. Numbers are limited but please do speak to us if you feel this would be helpful.
