Hafan y Waun opened in 2007 and provides residential care for 90 people, with an adjoining day care and resource centre for people with dementia. Key to MHA's approach is its attention to the individual and the recognition that choice is an important component in good quality living. There are, for example, a number of lounges throughout the home, giving the residents the option of where they want to be. Kitchenettes are included within communal rooms so that residents can have snacks at any time during the day or night, just as they would at home. Residents are even involved in the process of decorating their own rooms.

Above all, MHA has developed a strong "person-centred" approach which focuses on the person and not the dementia. The activities programme at Hafan y Waun is tailored specifically to each individual. Members of staff develop a programme of activities and care that takes account of each resident's personality, abilities, interests and preferences. It helps people to feel valued for who they are now as well as for who they were in the past.
