Glyn Menai, Bangor

About this project

2009 – “Care Home of the Year” at the Birmingham Care Show

2009 – Shortlisted for Pinders Healthcare Design Awards

In 2008 Fairways Care opened Glyn Menai, which was designed by DWA Architects, in consultation with the Dementia Services Development Centre at the University of Wales.

The new home incorporates the latest thinking in person centred care. The environment created has 2 main aims:

  1. to be secure without creating a sense of confinement;
  2. and to ensure interest and meaning to all areas.

To achieve this it utilises a host of design ideas both hi-tech and simple and the result achieved is calming, comfortable and completely unobtrusive.
