Bryn Ivor Lodge Care Home is a beautiful purpose-built care home in Newport. It has been specifically designed to provide high-quality residential and nursing care to older people, including those individuals living with dementia. Our person-centred approach to care is based on the use of care plans, which identify individual needs and lifestyle choices with the person concerned and their relatives.

This nursing home is located on the site of the former Wyevale Garden Centre. We welcome visitors at any time and are happy to offer helpful advice if we can, so please feel free to call us or to drop in.
