A CARE home has taken a "number of actions" after a report raised issues with some areas of its practice.

The Ty Gwyn Care Home on Stanwell Road, Penarth was inspected by the Care Inspectorate Wales in February this year, who raised issues with understaffing.

Inspectors had praised the care home for the good relationship between the staff and residents, but noted that the low numbers of staff had a "negative effect on the residents emotional well-being."

A spokeswoman for the care home said: "Since the inspection in February 2019 we have taken a number of actions to improve the care we provide at MHA Ty Gwyn care home even further. "This includes increasing the number of staff at the home and reminding colleagues of the importance of spending time with residents, providing personal care and participation in meaningful activities, reviewing the programme and effectiveness of activities provided at the home, continuing to work in partnership with Care Inspectorate Wales and other healthcare professionals in our commitment to improving our services and meeting regularly with residents and family members to obtain their feedback and views on services provided.

"Following the inspection we have an action plan in place to address the issues identified and these measures have already brought about improvements to the home.

"We very much welcome visits from the local community to see the home and great care provided for our residents at Ty Gwyn."

Ty Gwyn Care Home provides personal and nursing care for up to 45 people over the age of 55, is found close to the town centre and the seafront and is owned by Methodist Homes.
