We all know there’s no place like home

That’s why each Leonard Cheshire home is unique, and provides the support that’s right for the people who live there. Personalised support helps to make sure everyone can live as independently as they choose.

Dolywern is home for 30 adults with physical disabilities. We’re near the small town of Chirk, surrounded by green hills - and the Ceiriog River runs through the grounds.  We have local shops, restaurants, pubs, a library and a swimming pool and we’re close to Oswestry and Wrexham.

Is this the place for you?

This is a safe and friendly place to live, with high quality care and nursing. The team is dedicated and experienced and will make sure your needs are understood and met – all with the greatest privacy and respect. Physiotherapy is also available to support your health and wellbeing.

The people you’ll meet, the things you’ll do…

Live here and you’ll be supported to be independent, healthy and active. There’s something for everyone and our great team of staff and volunteers run individual and group activities, including bingo and quizzes. So whatever your interests, from keeping fit to being creative, there’s always something to get involved in.

…will take you to where you want to go

Tell us what you want to do, and together we’ll help you get there. Whatever you choose to do, we’ll work with you to make sure it helps you to achieve your goals. Dolywern is a place where you can feel at home while on your journey to independence.
