Tenants at Dafen’s Clos Llanfihangel Sheltered Scheme have been enjoying their Christmas present from the council – a brand new flat-screen TV for their communal lounge.
The TV was delivered just before the festivities, meaning that tenants were able to enjoy all the Christmas specials.
They are now planning to build film nights and sports specials in to their events programme.
Cllr Tegwen Devichand, Executive Board Member for Housing, said: “I was delighted to arrange for a television to be installed at Clos Llanfihangel. I know how much the tenants enjoy getting together, and this is another excuse to gather in the communal lounge and socialise.”
Carmarthenshire County Council operates 21 Sheltered Schemes across the county.
Whilst offering older people the independence they desire, with every self-contained flat having its own front door – they also benefit from 24-hour emergency cover via Careline and secure door entry systems for extra peace of mind.
Communal facilities, such as a shared lounge, allow tenants to socialise with their neighbours if they wish.
Tenants work with their Sheltered Scheme Officer to arrange a series of events, ranging from trips to bingo to fish and chip suppers.
