The privately owned Tyn y Graig Residential Care Home in Builth Wells is to close, the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) and Powys County Council have been told. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Senior Managers from the council’s adult services team will be working closely with the owners from Tyn Y Graig to support residents in moving to nearby care homes over the coming days and weeks. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

All residents, families, carers and members of staff have been informed of the closure and the council will be talking to residents and their families about their options, and the suitability of nearby care homes. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Cabinet Member for Adult Services, Councillor Stephen Hayes said: “Our highest priority is to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of 10 residents are met at a time of uncertainty. This change will undoubtedly cause upset, anxiety and confusion for many of the residents, and our social care staff with support from the community nursing team in Builth Wells will support and alleviate any fears residents and families may have. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“Residents will be moved to a new home in a sensitive and timely manner to avoid any further anxiety or upset that maybe caused. Our priority will be to work with the owners of the home and their staff to ensure residents’ needs continue to be met safely during the closure planning and move to an alternative home.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
