Fairways Newydd Nursing and Dementia Care Centre in Llanfairpwll ran a competition with the pupils at Ysgol Llanfairpwll to suggest names for the three new households being created at the home.
The households will each look to cater for the needs of residents at different stages of the ‘dementia journey’. They will ensure that residents live in small communities which support the need to have family-sized groups of people being cared for in one place. They also allow residents with similar needs to live together ensuring that staff become specialised in meeting these particular needs.
Three names were eventually chosen and each of the winners took home a tablet computer. The lucky winners were:
Elis Hughes. Age 3yrs who named Marcwys
Ynyr Jones . Age 10yrs who named Hafan Menai
and Celyn Bebb. Age 5 yrs , who named Noddfa
