My daughter, Audrey, was admitted to Cerrig yr Afon Bangor Nursing Home in 2011. She had severe learning difficulties and had been discharged from the hospital. At the age of 52 she was a young person in an environment mainly used by older people.
However, you would not have thought that as it was such a happy place. Audrey was bedridden but she was a cheerful person with a terrific sense of humour, all the staff went out of their way to meet Audrey's needs. She had complex medical needs but nothing was too much trouble.
The staff at Cerrig yr Afon came to love her and although her room was upstairs, she was never short of friendly visits or company to help her sing a song or two!
The nursing care was first class. Audrey idolised the male nurses especially. At the first sign of any health issues, Audrey's GP was called. Cerrig yr Afon was always very clean and well maintained and the food was of a high standard. Audrey had very specific dietary needs that required innovation in the way her food was prepared and presented, but nothing was too much trouble for the kitchen staff.
I think the highest compliment I can pay Cerrig yr Afon is to say that I had full trust in them to look after my beloved daughter.
