The tenants from Cwrt Ynysmeurig, Aberycynon, have moved back into their newly modified building.
Trivallis worked in partnership with R&M Williams to complete this major refurbishment. The complex was transformed into a modern, adapted property to suit the needs of its tenants.
Each room has been intricately designed in line with the Gold RNIB standard. Contrasting colours have been used throughout to ensure door handles, sinks, showers and other objects stand out to those who are partially sighted.
“In 2010, Trivallis made a commitment to all sheltered tenants to provide modern homes that meet the needs of older people. Since then, a number of development projects have taken place to update and modernise all of Trivallis’ sheltered complexes.” said Angela Stacey, Head of Care and Support at Trivallis.
Cwrt Ynysmeurig has been the largest upgrade project with the installation of three lifts to allow easier access to those living in the upper floors. As well as improving the apartments, the bungalows within the close were also updated to ensure they adhere to RNIB standards.
“I’ve had lots done; new doors, tiling in the bathroom and kitchen. Everyone was very friendly and professional, if I wanted anything done they’d do it. From the top to the bottom, everything is perfect,” said Violet Brakingbury a bungalow resident.
Local Councillor Rhys Lewis attended the launch and showed his gratitude for the work that had been completed.
“During local meetings between the tenants of Cwrt Ynysmeurig and councillors, lifts were a topic that featured heavily and so it’s great to see that our feedback has been listened to.”
In total, 11 Trivallis sheltered complexes have been redesigned and upgraded to meet the requirements of the Gold RNIB standards.
