Local school children have created eye-catching artwork to decorate the hoardings of Cardiff’s newest care home.

Students from St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School were invited by Care UK to get creative with a piece of artwork around the theme of ‘who do you care about?’ to decorate the hoardings surrounding the new Llys Herbert care home, on Ty-Draw Road.

The purpose-built care home – which is expected to welcome the first residents in July 2023 – will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 75 older people, with facilities including its own cinema, hair salon, café and landscaped gardens.

Angela Zuraw, Regional Director for Care UK, said: “We were delighted to be able to collaborate with St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School on this fantastic art project to brighten up our hoardings.

“It was great to welcome the pupils to see their pictures proudly displayed and we look forward to working with the school on future projects.”

Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, the new care home, is set to open in July next year. The spacious home will allow for plenty of space for hobby and leisure activities.
