TY CROESO DAY HOSPICE is an open door, offering support to families and individuals of Ystradgynlais and district who are facing the challenge of living with long term illness. We celebrate our 15th Anniversary this year, 2012.
Situated in Heol Eglwys in Ystradgynlais in the lovely Swansea Valley, we are a charity (registered number 1059508) funded from voluntary sources and we rely heavily on local support and the takings from our charity shop in Commercial Street. Such continuous financial support is needed to maintain and improve our services and facilities.
Everybody at some time experiences the shock of learning that someone they know is suffering a long term illness.
The experience can be a lonely and frightening for both the sufferer and their family. Treatment is often demanding, and when all that can be done has been done, the prospect of coping with the condition can be daunting. Often, all that is needed to make things bearable is a place to go and talk. Somewhere to have a cup of coffee and find a listening ear. A place where there is support from others who are facing, or have faced similar problems. TY CROESO – a house of welcome, is such a place and it is open to all.
