Success Stories

Faerdre is an attractive spacious detached country house near the market town of Llandysul. Faerdre comprises of 8 bedrooms for single occupancy, two of which are located on the ground floor. There is a spacious sitting room, a cosy quiet room, a separate dining room area and a large kitchen.

Due to its agricultural setting, Service Users are afforded the opportunity to care for animals and they currently look after a cat and fish. Service Users are active in their vegetable garden producing potatoes, beans, peas and many other crops.

Faerdre provides a wide ranging, holistic approach to working with adults with learning disabilities:

  • An experienced, well-trained and extremely motivated and enthusiastic team
  • 24 hr support (with waking nights) inc. 1:1 specific support for individual requirements
  • An excellent life-skills training service (responding to individual needs)
  • Support to access full range of activities, courses, skills training events

These plans encourage and enable individuals to take responsibility for their own personal care, laundry, menu and food production. They ensure that service users contribute to the day to day running of the house, attend house meetings and that they are more accountable for planning their own activities. Service Users supported to attend work placements, “have a voice in the community” and understand the world around them and their part in it.
