Individuals living at Ty Machen are encouraged to be a part of their local community and to utilise the local amenities, either on their own, with support, or in groups. This includes swimming, bowling, cinema visits, eating out and trying new activities of their choice. The focus is very much on supporting people to achieve their goals and aspirations and to have positive outcomes.
To increase confidence and to get involved in daily living skills, individuals at Ty Machen are actively involved in cooking and general household duties. There are also opportunities to learn new skills by attending colleges, day services or by pursuing local work opportunities.
Careful attention is given during the sensitive transition process to ensure individuals feel settled and happy in their new environment. This is gradual process for some individuals e.g. a visit for dinner, a day visit or perhaps an overnight stay to help them gain a rapport with the staff and other supported individuals before they move in.
