Rebecca’s Success Story living at Ty Hendy, The Laurels

August 28, 2020

Rebecca, a 27 year old lady with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS), moved in to one of the five self-contained flats within Ty Hendy, an innovative residential setting for individuals with learning disabilities and complex needs, based in Carmarthenshire Wales, after a previous placement at another learning disability service broke down.

Since moving to Ty Hendy and being supported to manage her PWS, Rebecca has grown in confidence, only has minimal behaviours and has become an active part of the local community.

“Rebecca is a really lovely lady with an infectious personality – she is very popular here. The team know her very well and understand what can trigger a behaviour for her. In this way, we can manage the environment and her support so behaviours are kept to a minimum and she can focus on living a happy and fulfilling life.” – Lorraine Jackson, Operations Manager and former Manager at Ty Hendy
