Hafod y Parc, Abergele
Construction and development work at Abergele’s first extra care scheme has been completed, with all of the 49 one and two bedroom apartments already occupied.
‘Hafod y Parc’ is a pioneering, new concept of enhanced private apartments for over 60 year olds, within an extra care complex.
The £11million new build Extra Care scheme, on Kinmel Avenue, offers those over the age of60 an enhanced choice, providing independent living, with a care and support programme that can be adapted as assessed individual needs change.
Hafod y Parc includes a host of internal and external communal areas including lounges, restaurant, recreation areas, hairdressers & pamper treatment room, snooker & games room, an IT room and much more. Set within beautiful picturesque leafy wooded parkland, tenants are also able to enjoy landscaped & themed gardens with pathways and paved patio areas.
Paul Diggory, Chief Executive of NorthWalesHousing said: “Hafod y Parc is an exceptional scheme and it is easy to recognise the appeal of the development.
“Older persons deserve more choice in later years and Hafod y Parc offers a very enhancing alternative to home living and residential care. For us, extra care is all about enabling people to make considered housing and care choices with the freedom of flexibility as their own needs change.”
The new scheme, built in partnership with Conwy County Borough Council, is of contemporary design, which excels in sustainability requirements. It is set in a peaceful and tranquil setting and has been developed to an exceptionally high quality with modern amenities throughout. On site, care and support is provided by AKC Home Care Services, an experienced local company.
Hafod y Parc resident Betty Fraser said: "Hafod Y Parc is the finest place I have ever had, I have never felt so happy and contented in all my life. There is wonderful food and unconditional support from the staff, It is out of this world!"
Cllr Chris Hughes, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Social Care and Health said, “I’m delighted to see this impressive new Extra Care Housing scheme completed in Abergele. This partnership between Conwy County Borough Council and North Wales Housing clearly demonstrates what can be achieved by working together for the benefit of the local community. We want to provide the best possible services for local people; we’re all very proud of this facility and I sincerely hope that all the residents will be very happy at Hafod y Parc.”
