About Glyn Anwen

A high quality Extra Care housing scheme for older people with individually tailored care & support.

Glyn Anwen Extra Care is situated in the St Julians area of the City of Newport and enjoys stunning views over the beautiful Usk Valley. Our extraCare model allows frail older people to live independently in their own self-contained apartment, with access to a home care service that is based on site. The scheme consists of 41 apartments, 26 of which are 2-bedroomed, the remainder are 1-bedroomed. The scheme design is in line with Linc’s high standards, and includes some features aimed at assisting residents with sight loss or memory loss to enjoy full access to the building.

Glyn Anwen includes a hairdressing salon, communal space for social activities, assisted bathing and restaurant facilities. Each apartment has an ensuite bathroom, fitted kitchen and either one or two well sized bedrooms. A Scheme Manager and Care Manager work closely to ensure that a high quality service is provided for the tenants. Our Scheme Managers also encourage and support the tenants to organise social activities and develop strong links with the local community.

Glyn Anwen is not residential care. This difference is important to tenants as it means that rent and a high proportion of the service charge is eligible for housing benefit. The rent and service charge include the provision of a midday meal seven days a week.
