Llys Cadfan is a care home owned by Gwynedd Council in North Wales. It caters for older people, in particular people living with dementia. They accommodate 28 residents who may require long stay, short stay, respite or day care.
Gwynedd Council purchased two RITA packages in late 2019 and an additional nine packages in early 2020. Soon after training took place COVID struck and the care homes were put in to lock down. RITA has played an instrumental role in supporting the most vulnerable during lock down.
