'Real struggle' to find suitable nursing home for father

A woman has spoken of her struggle to find her 88-year-old father a suitable nursing home.

Mair Watkins, from Govilon in Monmouthshire, had to find a home for her late mother and is now doing the same for her father, Ambrose Williams, who has increasing healthcare needs.

It comes after figures showed that despite a growing older population with more complex health needs, there are fewer nursing home places available in Wales than in 2014.

There were 10,829 places for people requiring 24-hour care in March 2017 - 423 (3.7%) fewer than three years ago.
