About Us

Who We Are

Ty-Golau is a group for people who have slight memory problems, Alzheimer’s or dementia type illnesses.

Ty-Golau opened its doors in Llanelli in 2009 and in Kidwelly in 2011 with 1 service user. We are almost now at full capacity with 30 service users at Kidwelly plus 10 family / carers attending on a weekly basis. We run sessions in Llanelli where 15 are currently attending in the morning sessions with 10 carers and 12 attending the afternoon sessions with 7 carers. We receive new referrals on a regular basis.

Our Purpose

Is to work with people with memory problems / dementia type illnesses and offer a safe environment where they can engage in mentally stimulating activities, which has ben shown to slow down the ageing process.

Support

Ty-Golau offers support and respite to family / carers as they can leave the person they care for with in the group in the knowledge that they are safe, well looked after and having a good time.

Intervenion

We measure our success by the feedback and comments we receive from both service users, care homes and family members, who notice marked improvements in mood, motivation, engagement and social skills.

Referrals

We welcome personal enquires and receive direct referrals from Local Health Boards and other partnership organisations, eg: care homes and Alzheimer’s Society, Age Cymru and Crossroads.

Specialist Care

The sessions provide specialist care with interesting and stimulating activities for the service users. These are designed to enhance the skills required to perform everyday tasks.

Attendance

Numbers attending our sessions have increased so dramatically over the past few months. As from 6th Sept 2018, we started facilitating afternoon sessions at Llanelli. A huge commitment but necessary as numbers continue to increase.

What it Costs

To generate income, we charge £5 per session. Family and carers just pay £1 for tea/coffee and cake. This small charge covers the cost of hiring the halls, resources needed for each session eg. FREE prize draw, stationary, IT resources and publicity etc.
