About Plas Bryn

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

Plas Bryn Extra Care is situated in the Fairwater area of Cardiff and enjoys stunning views over the city and out towards the Vale of Glamorgan. Our Extra Care model allows frail older people to live independently in their own self-contained apartment, with access to a home care service permanently based on site. The scheme consists of 40 apartments, 27 of which are 1-bedroomed, the remainder are 2-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.

Plas Bryn 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. Tenants are encouraged and supported to develop strong links with the local community and Plas Bryn has a particularly strong tenants group who have been instrumental in fundraising and organising events for the Plas Bryn community.

Plas Bryn 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.
