Council: Alternative care homes found for residents

Carmarthenshire County Council says that the order to remove Hafan Tywi care home's registration was made last Thursday at Llanelli Magistrates Court.

Alternative care homes have been identified for all the people living there. Some residents have already moved out and others will be moving today. It is a difficult time for residents, relatives and staff. The home has remained open over the Easter Bank Holiday and the local authority has put in staff to support the home. The commitment of the care home’s own staff is such that they have come into work despite the difficult circumstances. The county council had put in a lot of support for this care home. We regret that it was not possible to keep it open.

– Catherine Poulter, Carmarthenshire County Council
