City and County of Swansea Care Homes

Information about Council run care homes in the City and County of Swansea.

If you are considering a move to a care home for yourself or a relative, you should first read our introductory information about residential care and about choosing a care home .  This explains more about the process.

The Council operates six care homes for older people, and one for disabled adults in Swansea. You can choose to go to a Council-run home whether or not Social Services is making a contribution to your care home fees.

Our homes are either purpose-built or specially converted to provide accommodation for older adults. All are registered as 'care homes' with Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW). This means that they provide personal care, but are not registered to provide nursing care.  Some of our homes are registered to provide care to people with dementia. All staff at our homes are trained to provide a high quality of service and care.

Two of our homes - Bonymaen House and Tŷ Waunarlwydd - include short-term Assessment Units where a specialist reablement team works with people who have experienced a period of ill health with the aim of helping them regain the skills they need to be able to return home safely.

We encourage you to visit any home you are considering, but if possible please contact the Manager beforehand to agree a suitable time. You may like to visit at a meal time, as this is a good time to meet other residents of the home, as well as a chance to sample the food. You are welcome to bring a relative or friend with you when you visit.
