Grŵp Cynefin appoints scheme manager for Awel y Dyffryn in Denbigh Friday 2 July 2021

As the construction of Awel y Dyffryn, Grŵp Cynefin’s latest extra care housing scheme in Denbigh nears completion, Manon Jones, originally from Bala, has been appointed manager of this exciting scheme for older people. Manon, who now lives in Denbigh, has started in her post and is pleased to see that people are already registering for homes in this purpose-built building that opens this autumn. The scheme is the result of collaboration between Grŵp Cynefin and Denbighshire County Council and has been built on the former Middle Lane school site in Denbigh town centre.

The scheme promises residents a homely atmosphere and the best in services and resources. Unlike care homes, extra care housing offers flats for one person, a couple or two people to create their own home with their choice of furniture and decor, their own front door and complete independence.

At the beginning of her career, Manon worked at Grŵp Cynefin’s other extra care housing scheme, Awel y Coleg in Bala, and is looking forward to creating a similar warm and supportive community in Awel y Dyffryn.

“Awel y Dyffryn offers a place where home, support and care happen together,” said Manon. “It offers people a home to come and go, as they want, freedom to receive and visit friends and family as they please and opportunities to attend social clubs and events and continue with their lives as before. And if there is any need for care after they move here, it’s available on-site in their own homes.

“I look forward to seeing a community being created, and people in similar situations coming together and supporting each other.”

According to Noela Jones, Grŵp Cynefin’s Head of Neighbourhoods: “Manon will be a great asset to Awel y Dyffryn. She has the experience and character to ensure that every resident who moves here gets the best care. Manon will be instrumental in creating a close and warm community, supporting residents to enable them to live as independently as possible and working closely with the care providers, giving families and friends complete peace of mind that the older members of their family are part of Awel y Dyffryn’s caring family. ”

Awel y Dyffryn was developed in partnership with Denbighshire County Council and is Grŵp Cynefin’s largest extra care housing scheme, offering 66 modern and comfortable apartments. Although substantial, it is designed around a communal garden, creating a sense of community and closeness. A sociable daily lunch in the restaurant and a choice of communal areas will ensure that the tenants get to know each other well, forming friendships and support.

Other posts within the scheme will soon be advertised, with jobs available in the kitchen, caretaking and support staff.

Manon Jones is keen to hear from anyone who is interested in coming to Awel y Dyffryn to live when it opens or in the future.

“The most important thing if you think you will benefit from living somewhere like Awel y Dyffryn, is to apply,” she says. “We can discuss any care needs, help with arranging services and also help find benefits available if there are any worries about whether or not you can afford to live there.

“Please get in touch. I’m really looking forward to the opening of Awel y Dyffryn and to meet the residents who I’m sure will all be friends in no time.”
