Our home in Merthyr was formerly a hotel with a lavish ballroom. Set in 7 acres of land on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, it is in an idyllic spot adjacent to the main road that connects the major towns and cities of South Wales. We bought the three storey property in 2006 and after renovations and a new wing added, Jah-Jireh Merthyr was officially opened in June 2007 with 51 ensuite bedrooms with the local congregation of Merthyr renovating the ballroom to have a Kingdom Hall on site. Local brothers and sisters worked as volunteers donating much of the materials for creating a courtyard style garden for our brothers and sisters to enjoy and is a lovely feature of this home.

Our folks all tuned in for this months broadcast!
Lymphedema is a persistent swelling in the body, generally affecting the arms and legs and can be eased by the use of stockings, creams and gentle exercises.
The Cwm Taf health board have recently received funding to work along with staff in residential and nursing care to improve care for this condition. We were the first home in the area to be given this opportunity.
Lymphedema nurses came and visited the home at Merthyr and spent time chatting with our residents. They provided free e-learning tools for our supervisors/care staff and gave us a contact name for ongoing assistance.
