Joanna Mosses, Care Home Manager

The warmest of welcomes to Cerrig yr Afon Care Home in Y Felinheli, Gwynedd.

Cerrig yr Afon Care Home is set in the beautiful countryside beside the Menai Strait. We are proud to deliver nursing care and support for older people in the local area.

I have worked in the care sector for 25 years, having started my carer as a carer in a nursing home. I was inspired to do this seeing some bad practice with my grandparents’ care.

Following this, I wanted to make sure all people have a voice, even if they can’t speak, to ensure a person-centred approach is always applied. If people didn’t have an advocate, then I would become an advocate for their care and welfare, especially when they lacked capacity to make these decisions.

I’m proud to hold a level four health and social care qualification as well as Registered Managers awards. In addition, I am train the trainer registered with the Association of Healthcare Trainers.
Having progressed from carer to team leader in a care home, I worked my way up from there to become a deputy manager and then a manager.

It’s important to me to encourage and support my team members to train, develop and progress their own careers and achieve their goals. I’m also proud to have covered nine homes in relation to health and safety and supported the management and teams at these homes.

For me, great care is ensuring that the quality of care is right and that everybody has a voice for their wishes whilst in care and that these wishes are carried out.

I would love to show you around Cerrig yr Afon and would be more than happy to discuss any aspect of care for your relative or friend. Simply call the home and make an appointment.


Lisa S (Mother of Resident)

Lynda B (Mother of Resident)

Thank you very much for the kindness and compassion shown to my mother during her stay with you. We will take comfort from the knowledge that she comfortable in dignified surroundings during her time with you

Elizabeth T (Mother of Resident)

Just a note to thank you very much for looking after my Uncle so well. I know that he felt content and happy at Cerrig yr Afon - he also felt safe. He was always full of praise for the staff (and the food!).

Whenever I visited it was obvious he was receiving a high standard of care and I was always made to feel welcome. The last time I visited him he was on good form, enjoying a concert in the lounge, eating like a horse and enjoying a chat.

I take comfort in knowing that he was in a pleasant environment where he was well cared for. Once again, many thanks.
