Care homes across the country opened their doors to the public on Friday 20th June for National Care Home Open Day for a second year running.

Jonathan Edwards MP said:

“National Care Home Day is a great opportunity to meet up with more local residents and see first-hand the services at the heart of these communities.

“One of the measures of a civilised society is how we treat our elderly citizens. The care sector therefore plays a vital role in ensuring that older people are able to live with dignity and respect.

Rhodri Glyn Thomas AM added:

“It was a pleasure to speak with some of the residents and hear how much they enjoy the activities in their home.”

“Care homes such as Llys Newydd and the many others in Carmarthenshire enable our older residents to enjoy a full a life as possible.”
