Meet The Manager

Gemma Wilson is Care home Manager at Duffryn Ffrwd Manor LTD.

The Registered Manager of Duffryn Ffrwd Nursing and Residential Home is Mrs Gemma Wilson RGN, who has been managing the Home since 2015.

Duffryn Ffrwd Manor comprises two Homes. A Nursing Home which was opened in 1996 and a purpose built Residential Care Home opened in 2000. The Manor is a grade 2 listed building, located on the border of Cardiff, Caerphilly and Rhondda Cynon Taf. We are five minutes from junction 32 of the M4, with easy access to the A470. The Home is set in three acres of woodland. There are wheelchair friendly walkways leading to two pond areas and seating areas for picnic.

The grounds comprise 3 acres of beautiful woodland alive with the colour of ancient Oaks, giant Poplars and a Weeping Willow. There are walkways through the grounds and a relaxing pond area.  

On your strolls you may come across our new addition, to the Nursing Home, Harvey the rabbit or when over in the Residential Home, you may find Kitty the cat curled up amongst the books or showing our residents how much she likes to see them.
