About Maes y Môr, Aberystwyth

Our new £9m extra care scheme in Aberystwyth opened in October 2021.

Located at Pen yr Angor, Trefechan, with magnificent views over the town and harbour, it is our first extra care scheme in Ceredigion and the second to be opened in the county.

The scheme provides a range of facilities and 24-hour on site care and support.

Maes y Môr was developed in partnership with Ceredigion County Council.


We accept applications from adults with either a care or a support need.

Priority is given to those already living in Ceredigion.

An assessment of each individual’s circumstances will be made to determine their need for extra care housing.

Please expand the tabs below to view answers to FAQs.

Is extra care housing just for older people?

No. Maes y Môr will be open to people aged 18 and over who have a care and support need.

My mother has early Alzheimer's - can she move into extra care housing?

People with Alzheimer’s can live in extra care housing. As part of the assessment of each person all health conditions are considered to ensure their care and support needs can be met before they are accepted on to the waiting list for accommodation.

My husband is unwell - do you consider applications from couples who want to move into extra care housing together?

Yes. There are 2 bed apartments that are spacious and ideal for couples. When assessing the suitability of couples wishing to be considered for extra care housing we would look at the needs of both individuals and as a couple.

I already live in sheltered housing - how would extra care housing be different?

The main difference would be that in our extra care housing there is an on-site care and support team. This team provides services to people as agreed by their individual care and support plans.

How do you prioritise people on the waiting list?

When a vacancy arises everyone on the waiting list will be considered. The property will be offered to whoever is deemed, at the time of the vacancy, to be in the greatest need.

Consideration will be given to any escalation of risk of a person losing their independence and/or increasing level of support needed, should they remain in their current accommodation.

What happens if my health gets worse while I am living in extra care housing?

Your needs may change over time and the level of care and support you need may fluctuate. The teams will support you to stay living in your home for as long as possible for as long as your needs can be met.

Can I buy an apartment?

No. The apartments are for rent only.

Can I have a pet?

In most cases, yes. We will establish how people care for their pet and that they understand that internal and external areas are shared before giving permission.

Can I go out when I want and can I have visitors?

Your apartment is your own home – you can go out when you want and have visitors who can stay overnight.
