Methodist Homes transfers Aberystwyth home to local authority

Methodist Homes (MHA) has announced the transfer of Hafan y Waun care home in Aberystwyth, Wales to Ceredigion County Council.

The move forms part of MHA’s strategic review of its services, which has seen the charity withdrawing from ten care homes, either putting them up for sale as going concerns or transferring them to the local authority.

MHA’s strategic review looked at several factors including location and proximity of care homes to other MHA services and those for older people, the physical environment of homes, their financial performance, and how older people will want care and support providing in future years.

MHA chief executive Sam Monaghan said: “Over the past few months we have been working closely with Ceredigion CC and its representatives and are pleased that we have been able to reach agreement to transfer Hafan y Waun to the local authority.

“We are sad to lose Hafan y Waun from the MHA family but I am certain the home will continue to be a big part of the Aberystwyth community, as it moves under the ownership of Ceredigion.

“I want to thank all my colleagues at the home for their dedication and care to residents and each other over the years.

“The other nine homes are currently being marketed and there has been strong interest in all of them, so we are hopeful all will be sold as going concerns, continuing to provide care and support for older people.”
